Wealth, Wellness, & Wisdom Series: Be Well With Money – The Gift of the Gap: Aligning Spending with Values

I feel safe in saying that we can see a light at the end of this pandemic tunnel and it is not a train speeding towards us. It has been well over a year since we went into lockdown to try and control the spread of COVID 19. Over the past year and a half, many of us have adjusted our spending habits and largely out of lack of opportunities to spend money.

Everyone had to be mindful of when we left the house so spur of the moment shopping trips to Target were no longer the Sunday routine. We couldn’t travel. We couldn’t eat out in a traditional way. And no Sunday Fundays at the local bar. A year later, we are looking toward returning to pre-pandemic life.

This week I heard the phrase, The Gift of the Gap, in terms of thinking of this past year as a gift.  That may seem like a stretch because in a lot of ways this past year was hard and traumatic and lots of people died.  But viewing a big shift in life as a gift means we look back on it with fresh new experienced eyes and can see the opportunities it brought.
