About aging and your finances.
I am reading Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert and I found this passage very interesting for a variety of reasons. In her book on page 192 she says:
"But here's what the researchers did discover that makes elderly women miserable across the board: poverty and poor health. Whether you have children or not, then, the prescription seems clear: Save your money, floss your teeth, wear your seat belt, and keep fit - and you'll be a perfectly happy old bird someday, I guarantee you."
Here are the valuable priorities:
1. Take care of your health
2. Save your money, pay off debt, and control your spending
I just thought this was very interesting and I am glad that I read this at 29 and not 59. Now, I have time to do something about my health and financial situation (save a lot for retirement).
