money talks

If you have money in Jamaica, you could live like a king or a queen.
Speaking with Jamaicans who work here and make minimum wage makes me realize finally how much money I actually spend, how much of it is necessity and how much of it I just spend because I can… And for the most part I don’t know how how I am able to spend this money because I don’t even really have it. For someone who lives in 40 CAD a week I’m looking pretty middle class. I don’t need to spend this money though and if anything I’d be better off to live minimal and receive abundance than to live frivolous and find myself without. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. Two months left in Jamaica to prove that I’m not a complete lost cause when it comes to budgeting.
