As a kid I grew up in a two bedroom apartment with my Mom, stepdad, brother sister and my stepsisters who lived there on and off. It was a hard life looking back at it now as an adult but I didn’t know much different because that’s what I grew up with! It wasn’t until I was 13 years old till where we lived in a house. I didn’t think any of us thought it was going to happen.
I never grew up in a house or was taught about saving, debt, credit and basically how to set myself up for a good life. I don’t blame my parents they were in survival mode them selves trying to keep a roof over our head and food on the table . I don’t think they where brought up that way either .
This last month going through my moms things and going through all my stuff, I was just thinking my mom had nothing to show for her hard work she did in her life ! Besides having good kids she didn’t have anything to show like a house or a paid off car she just had things !!! I thought I need to reverse that I want to show my children how to set them selfs up to a successful life. I want my children to grow up in a house !
Everything I went through in my childhood taught me in my life nothing comes easy and I need to work hard for it. I’m not afraid of hard work and I want to do this for my mom . It’s hard to figure out with no guidance but I will figure this out and set my children up to not make the mistakes I went through .
