Life in recent weeks has changed for us all, with some affected worse than others especially those who have lost loved ones. I do think it will change the way we approach life – at least I know it will for me. I never thought I would see the day that I would be restricted from leaving my home but grateful, because I am not ill and safe in the knowledge that unlike some I don’t have to leave my house to work. Also I have never been so grateful to the key workers who are ensuring that people are receiving the care they require and that we receive the basic essentials we need.
I have read a lot in the last few weeks and the one thing that has really made me stop and think were the comments saying that we all want our lives to return to normal. But take a moment and work out what parts of normal life you want to rush back to.
I do believe that we need to stay positive during what is a stressful time for many of us and take some time to work out any changes we would like to make when life is back to normal. I can think of a number of changes that I will make. Coming out of this is not going to be easy for any of us and financially many of us have had to face some losses. I have always been a firm believer that having goals gives us direction, focus and the strength to get through tough times. This may not be the answer for everyone but for many of us it could help us to get through the hard times ahead.
Many goals will need a financial plan in place to help us to achieve them. You may be setting new goals, or your progress towards existing goals may have been affected. If you need a hand with these please give us a call.
