Yesterday I spoke about unexpected expenses – today let me speak of the expected expenses. For example, knowing you’ve spent (or will spend if a last-minute shopper) extra cash this time of year on presents for Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, or whatever you might exchange for… perhaps even someone’s birthday or a holiday wedding or cash to get into a New Year’s Eve party.
I understand that means cash is tight, but my philosophy on this has evolved as I have grown while exploring this scene … you can hear the difference in older versus newer files. Of course, sometimes I can’t shake the niceness that is me by nature… it’s just how I was raised… if I say, “Oh it’s okay, I know times are tight.” But deep down, and I need to get better at expressing this, I don’t care. Why should you having to spend more on others, mean spending less on your cashmaster at a time when he also is having to buy more for others? It shouldn’t. You should in fact be paying your cashmaster more at this time of year to make sure he can get nice presents, be it for himself or loved ones. And on top of that, you should be hitting up the wishlists and getting your cashmaster gifts as well… even if it means you’re adding to your debt.
After all, this is the time of year to be generous with one’s giving … and the fact that a Superior might give you even time at all, even if it’s just taking the time to write this blog that you read… that is far more than an inferior like you deserves. So go ahead (though I ask gifts come before 12/28) – hit up my wishlist if you still need to get me something nice for the holiday, it’s not too late… with gift cards very welcome too. Of course, as I always say, my favorite gift of all is a nice tribute of CASH.
