Growing Pains

Growing pains

There is always a little discomfort to growth, whether physical or emotional or financial. It’s relatively easy to do nothing and stay within your comfort zone. Real growth requires work and sometimes blood, sweat and tears. My girls are going through that this year as it is their first year away at university. One is adapting easier than the other but I know that they are both growing and becoming better.

We are going through some growing pains right now with the economy and financial markets. The rapid increases to inflation over the past year has effected us all and as a result we have had to change adapt along with it. Some say that we have been spoiled over the past 15 years with record low interest rates and that the party is now over and it’s time to higher prices of everything and that will include higher borrowing costs.

There is no way to avoid change in life but the better you adapt the more you will grow. Sticking your head in the sand and trying to pretend that it won’t effect you is not a winning strategy. Experts are recommending that you monitor your investments closely and adjust them often if required. This is also true with your personal finances, just because you have always bought your lunch throughout the week doesn’t mean that should continue so you can cope with the rising costs all around you.

Today I am thankful for clients who I had thought had disappeared came back for assistance, the growth that my girls are experiencing as I know that they will be better as a result and each new book that I have read this year that has expanded my growth potential.

I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
