Justifying the Expense
I have been sitting at the computer for around two hours now waiting for my paycheck from work to be direct deposited into my account. I am using that as an excuse to help me justify an expense I wish to make.
At the moment, I am excited for the prospects ahead. However, I halt myself and use the money as an excuse because I am yet unsure. I am sure, in this moment, that I want to do this. However, what is to be said about the moments after the purchased item arrives? Will I still have the same excitement as I do now?
The item to which I refer will help me to earn money. It will also be fun to do, and if nothing else, will be a fun project. However, while I am willing to spend the nearly $200.00 now, will I be in the future? Oh I think so. Oh how I HOPE so.
I know, deep down, the only thing holding me back is my fear of the repercussions of a successful venture. As this item that I will be purchasing, will result in a venture of sorts. Whether it be a successful (and thus monetarily pleasing) venture, I am unsure.
I suppose we shall soon see, as the money is in the bank. Though I had the money BEFORE my check came in, I wanted to wait a few days, I wanted to justify the expense. I wanted to see my bank account above $50.00 (which is what would have been left in there had I not waited).
