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).

You're starting a business? You write about it here but not tell me?

Good luck with your venture, whatever it might be.

If you've invested money it certainly makes you take it more seriously and work harder, for longer, to make sure you didn't waste it.

hey mama! No I am not starting a business per se. I will write to you about it in a little while, though.

The money invested at first is quite small in comparison to what it could be. The money I put forth in the future will only be for the betterment and advancement of the trade. This is one of the least "risky" investments out there, and yet it does have a heavy investment in time. Time, however, is what I have. Working third shift only thrice or four times a week, makes it easier for me to be able to do this venture ahead of me.

I wish you the best of luck in your new venture. Doubt will always be present, but sounds like you have a handle on this new venture!

A little while she says. I think you just barely told me today.
