Debt Quote Tuesday Today

The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence, and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has.
-Hamilton Wright Mabie
I think at some point in time throughout each day I find myself asking, "why didn't I..." It could be a number of why's: why didn't I refrain from that purchase, why didn't I put more money towards this or that instead, why didn't I spend more time with him, why didn't I go to sleep earlier. Okay so those are fairly little whys but most of our whys are little. It's usually the little ones that bring us down.

The woulds are equally as frustrating: what would I do if I were a millionaire, what would I do if I weren't in debt, what would I do if I had more time, what would I do if I hadn't purchased this house? So much pondering.

Instead of thinking about what I would do or what could have/ should have been done I think I'll take inspiration from Hamilton and move forward. What will I do today?

Be the best me I can be.
Find every bit of lovely life has to offer.
Not go more into debt.
Accomplish NO SPEND #40 for the year.
Smile more.
