Are you prepared for joy?
Your plans can change in the blink of an eye. An accident, illness or loss switches our brains into flight, fight or freeze modes. You can’t help this. You feel like you are living your life but not really in touch with the decisions around you. It’s like being in your own dream. Fortunately, we are equipped as humans to continue doing things like brushing our teeth, drinking water, turning on the TV, reading our emails, sitting in a chair, etc. Everything seems slow and fast all at the same time.
We know there are big things going on in our lives that need to be managed but our brains can’t seem to focus very long to work through the decision making process all at one time. What used to take 5 minutes now takes 5 days. Be prepared put aside money for your "future self". When a crisis happens not having to worry about money is such a blessing. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today - you can do this!
