Linda is our wonderful host for SoCS. A single word can make my brain run amuck. I think I’ll go with the first thing that popped into my head.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fortune.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
I was raised in a family with little fortune. I once thought that a fortune was having a twenty in my wallet. It was a rare occasion to have “spare” money not allocated for some mandatory bill. I knew how to live within my means which I feel fortunate for. I was, and still am, a saver more than a spender. It took quite a while to learn that it was OK to spend money on fun things when I had it. I tried to pass on my way of thinking, but unfortunately, I think I failed.
I do not have a fortune of money, nor do I need one. At this stage of the game, I have enough to live comfortably. I can take care of my needs as well as help others. I have a fortune of memories, a fortune of love, a fortune of gratitude, and a fortune of hopes for the future. I have enough.
