I was watching a program on the Travel Channel the other day and I found one thing very interesting. The people who live in those expensive houses probably don’t have a clue what it costs to heat and cool them. I come from poor background and I struggle everyday to try and rise above that lifestyle. I like to envision myself surrounded by extravagant things and fancy cars. This allows me a mental escape from my day to day existence of my mundane job. I do put money into savings each month but I have goals that are far less lofty than a brand new beach house. For instance, I would love to have central heating and air conditioning in my place. Every afternoon I try and channel positive and wealthy thoughts to keep myself motivated to achieve my goals. I am definitely not materialistic whatsoever, however it would be incredibly nice to not have to worry about the financial burden that haunts me daily. I don’t even want the most top-of-the-line and state-of-the-art devices in my house such as radiant heated floors or zone control, I just want a quality system that keeps me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I wish to lead a happy and healthy life and surround myself with a few luxuries that I can afford. Who knows, maybe one day, with my attitude, I will be able to afford those fancy things. I will always be sure to remember where I came from and how hard I had to work to get the things I wanted. If I am ever in that position I will try and help others that are still in the predicament that I am now. My family struggled for years just to make ends meet and we never had the luxury of an HVAC system.
