Lite närturism skadar aldrig. Igår tog vi en tur till Storkyrö med omnejd. Vilka sköna ställen det finns. Besökte bland annat Leväluhta järnåldersgrav, där man funnit nästan 100 skelett av mest kvinnor och barn i en röd källa😬. Därefter avverkades i rask takt Orisbergs herrgård, Storkyrö gamla kyrka, en badplats i ett stenbrott och Tesses kafé. En perfekt dag i det allra bästa sällskapet. ❤ Allt för sällan som hela gänget är samlat numera. .
It’s always special visiting my hometown. It’s a little tired looking, a bit run down and little rough around the edges but it is full of heart and the best kind of people. The people that helped raise me into the person I am. Full of people that I’ve known for most of my life. Full of people I always feel so honoured knowing and full of people that I share so many special memories with. For that reason alone, it will always be home.
Life is a funny ole’ thing. That little beach shack there in the background is where I used to slump next to in the evenings. It is where I first sat with a notebook and pen, scribbling words across a page. Words that spilled from me in waves. Feelings, emotions, stories. It is where I started my journey as a writer while watching the sun set behind the boats marooned in the mud. Mud that the tide had left glimmering in dips and bumps as it went out. I remember feeling so lost and unsure of what my life would look like 10 years from that point. It was all so hazy and I remember thinking how out of reach what I wanted all seemed. That university degree. The nice house in the suburbs. The significant other and the children. It isn’t realistic for people from my background... not really.
To be sat on that very beach 10 years later, with a crabbing line in one hand, a camera in the other, my heart full of love as I watched my children playing on the stones, a head that is so much clearer and a life I feel humbled to be living... well that is truly something. It’s been a journey, a difficult one at that. But I’ve got there and I got to realise just how far I’ve come while stood on that beach. The fact I got to share that moment of realisation with some of the people that have been there with me for the majority of my life. The people that kept me going when I felt I couldn’t. The people that never stopped cheering for my corner... well that is just priceless ❤️.
Many prospective clients I meet live week to week. They spend first and save second, leaving financial stresses on themselves and their family. I help people understand their current financial situation, assist them with knowledge and skills as well as offer guidance and advice to achieve their short, medium and long term goals.
A total financial plan consists of three key areas;
First step, create the foundation of good spending habits by assessing your spending habits, create a rock-solid budget, and build a reserve fund for emergencies.
Now that we've created the platform, its time to invest the surplus by determining your investment strategy, assess your attitude to volatility, and design your portfolio - your way.
Finally, protect yourself, your family and your income by assessing your attitude to risk, insure what you value most and implement protection plan and agreements.
