I know, I’m super lame and breaking blogging code right now. Monday is suppose to be the highest traffic day of the week for bloggers, thus it makes sense to post your most intriguing article on a Monday. Right?
Well, I dropped the ball and let the weekend get away from me. It’s 12:50am and I don’t have the energy to write a ninja-riffic blog post. I won’t leave you empty handed though, so today I pose a question.
Does “money/wealth/possessions” make it in your top five personal values?
For me, this question is a tricky one. I feel like if someone said “Debt Ninja what is important to you?” I would reply “Family, friends, happiness, health, growth, etc.” I really don’t think money would show up on my list. I bet an outsider looking in, however, would rank it near the top of my values. I think about money all the time, I blog about it, read about it, learn about it, and obsess over it. It darn well seems that it is super important to me.
I think the reason “money” or “wealth” doesn’t show up on the radar (even though it takes up a hefty chunk of my time) is because I am only using money as a means to achieve my top personal values. I will be able to provide for my family, visit my friends, do fun things, eat better, and learn more if I am financially stable and not having to consume my time worrying about how I am going to pay my next credit card bill.
I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way, but I’m wondering if there is anyone out there bold enough to say money in and of itself makes it on your list? I promise not to judge if it does. So PF’ers, hit me with a couple of the things you value and why. Hope ya don’t have a case of the Monday’s
