Lending Money


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

You might think this is about money but lending and not being paid back isn't very good for staying positive. I combat this by a saying I once heard, "Never lend more than you can afford to give away." So my loans are gifts even if the recipients don't know it and it's a surprise if they pay me.

    OMG, so true! I live by this same motto. It took a few "gifts" before I realized it, but now I know when to say No and when I can say yes.
