Rabbi Nachman Me'Uman wrote a beautiful, inspiring song. Kol Ha'Olam Kulo, Gesher Tsar Me'od. The whole world is a very narrow bridge. Veha'ikar – veha'ikar lo lefached klal. The most important thing to remember is not to be afraid at all.
It is true, this world is a narrow bridge. We all have something that scares us. We all have something that excites us.
Something that scares a lot of people is money. I happen to know a lot about it. I graduated with a finance degree as an undergraduate. I spent time working as a bank manager. I spent time (and still work) as a financial analyst. I am an MBA student. Needless to say, I have some training.
What do Rabbi Nachman and money have in common? Not much. However, while living on my narrow bridge, I am trying to get by one day at a time. Part of that is dealing with my money.
I use a system of budgets, auto-payments, auto-deductions, and more to manage my money. All the while I am accumulating student loans (private school). Making money, spending money, it can be stressful. What is important is not to be afraid.
This is my journey. Enjoy!
