I noticed yesterday that of the several talented, generous, intelligent, hardworking, attractive women with whom I've interacted recently only one is financially solvent. Apparently it takes more than talent, generosity, intelligence, hard work and beauty to be free of money worry.
Also yesterday, a good friend who is about my age announced she is dedicating herself to becoming "financially competent." She's on an earnest mission now to get wise about and pay attention to her finances.
I asked her to share what she learns but this morning I realized that I don't have money and I actually don't want any. (I only want it because other people want me to have it so I can give it to them in rent and cell phone charges.) So, I'm getting just what I want.
I ate leftover West Indian food tonight while reading a newspaper article about The 50% League, a club whose members voluntarily give away at least half of what they make or inherit. They also said it gives them a great feeling.
I feel left out. I want to experience that great feeling. I've changed my mind. I DO want to become financially solvent and competent.
So I can join The 50% League.
