    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    It’s so easy to dismiss issues and procrastinate with things that are outside our wheelhouse and comfort zone. But, imagine how dangerous it would be if we never researched our physical health, and safety. Financial health is inextricably connected to our overall wellbeing, just as crucial, and requires our regular attention. It is vital to understand how taxes play with our money, plus realize the consequences of our spending behavior, in order to budget our lives wisely in preparation for tax time and, especially, for those unforeseen events that DO occur (good ol’ “Murphy’s law”).
