I often hear people complain when they have unexpected bills as it often ruins their financial plans for the month. Today for myself I had the opposite issue where I got some unexpected income from one source where it accumulated enough funds to generate a payment. While it doesn’t really make anything different financially for the month, what it made me think of is the confidence boost it gives you where it essentially makes you under budget for the month.
That’s something we all need I think where it’s like a little reward to encourage you to keep being financially responsible. Of course to do this that means you have to be willing to do something extra too even if it means sacrificing some play time to develop what can potentially be a nice source of side income. It may never pan out, but that’s risk one needs to take I say to potentially get the reward.
