Education Is Expensive
I am worried about money. I am not what you would call poor but education is getting more and more expensive each day. I just need to find different avenues of making money to enable my kids to further their education and give them the qualifications they need.
The problem seem to be that I am ambitious. I want to give them something better than what I had which is a local degree. i know that this can be done as I firmly believe that education is not merely a paper qualification by the exposure to a wide range of experiences.
Unfortunately, I have little faith in the local educational institutions. I am hoping the kids will get financial aid or at least student loans to allow them to take the next step forward.
I am always thinking about this and worrying about the future. I have my prayers to calm myself and can only hope for the best. I do wonder if all parents feel like this.
My friends tell me to let the kids chart their own journey. I cannot be always be there for them. i know this and to be fair to the kids they demand nothing from me. It is just he way I am.
Today I have been looking at bank rates and fixed deposit rates and am wondering if I should put my money in another bank for better rates. I have decided not to. i need to calm down and keep on writing. Slowly I know I can build a name for myself as a writer of calibre. Writing helps me focus on the task at hand and not to worry about things that I have no control over. Writing also calms me especially writing on this platform and sharing my worries with my friends. Somehow I know I am not the only parent with money worries and this too will pass.
