When I graduated high school, there wasn’t a lot of time to process exactly what was happening. There were too many people patting me on the back, saying they were proud of me, and asking me what was next.
We didn’t set out to slack off. It just sort of happened. We budgeted well for several years. Stayed disciplined. Paid off debts. Found new ways to give. And after a while we started paying a little less attention to our finances.
