Quote of the Day

Language is the bridge that connects our minds and hearts with the outside world. Using vulgar expressions coarsens our soul, vulgarizes our spirit and builds a rickety and unreliable bridge.

—  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

The Years are Short

 Gretchen Rubin has just released a short video about the value of time spent with our loved ones.   “The days are long, but the years are short.”

As a working mom,  it struck close to home.  I’m often so busy trying to squeeze time to be THE superwoman and often forget that for my son, all I need to do is be his mom.

Quote of the Day

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

Ahhh…. wisdom.   Sometimes,  it seems like such a fleeting wish.  I can’t help but feel that sometimes I’m just banging my head against a brick wall.  Yes,  I know my head is hard but it’s no match for the wall of blind obedience and arrogant ignorance.  =(

Saving and Investing: Michael Fischer makes the complex, simpler

I was surfing through youtube the other day and came across the savingandinvesting channel of Michael Fischer.  A former Goldman and Sachs man,  Michael has made financial literacy his personal advocacy and seeks to demystify various financial concepts for the man on the street. 

He writes: 
“This subject is not about greed, short-cuts, opinions or speculation – it is about being informed, and about being rewarded for participating in our financial system in order to provide better lives for ourselves and others that we care about.”

Maxed Out: Debt and Financial Insecurity

Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders is a documenatary film which seeks to raise awareness on how credit and lending issues are affecting American society.   While it is targeted for Americans,  it could very well be telling our own story.  We as a nation and as individuals are also over our heads in debt.  Affluenza has led to an addiction to debt.

It’s a movie you can’t afford to miss.  Watch it here for free (albeit in low quality).   Share the link with your children,  your family and your friends.  Hopefully, it will make them think twice about spending money that they don’t have.    When it comes to credit,  it pays to be informed.
