  1. Luck Has Nothing to Do With It

    by , 08-31-2009 at 05:53 PM ([email protected]'s Blog)
    It’s very frustrating when people who don’t know us well attribute our decent financial situation to “luck.” As in, “You’re so lucky that you don’t have debt,” or, “You’re so lucky not to have to worry about your bills.” The conversation usually ends with the other person saying something along the lines of, “I wish I could be as lucky as you.” Of course, good manners dictate that I don’t scoff at their kindly meant words, but I want to tell them that they could be in the same situation as I am, ...

    I sat there listening to the various tales of fear and despair wondering what, exactly, the problem was. It seems simple to ...
