You know that old saying, “save your money for a rainy day”? Isn’t it kind of depressing?
We all have something that we want to save money for— but the connotation of a “rainy day” makes me feel like I’m saving for something negative. Like car repairs or unexpected bills. There’s no excitement or joy in saving for a rainy day.
And when rainy day goals are for something good, like a large purchase, they often seem unattainable. For instance, my husband and I are saving for our first house, but as this is a newer goal, we really haven’t made a dent towards the 20% down, or so, that we need to buy what we want. Which is kind of depressing.
So instead of a “rainy day” goal, wouldn’t it be more uplifting to save and live for a SUNNY DAY!?
For my family, our sunny day would be having our first meal together at the dining room table in our new home. It’s the thought of happiness, to finally be settled in our own place and enjoying the fruits of our labor. My sunny day includes the smile on my daughter’s face as she realizes our family has roots to a home she can come back to once she is grown. That’s the type of SUNNY DAY that I get excited about saving for!!
