MONEY SUCKS. Well, at least for the many of us who don’t have it. It especially sucks when you’re growing up and you don’t really understand why you don’t have it.
$40,000 a year for a single mom to feed four kids, two of which she adopted, doesn’t exactly leave a lot left over for luxuries. There were definitely times when I resented not being able to do or buy things that other kids could. I was extremely self conscious about having to use the reduced lunch coupons, or wear hand-me-down clothing, but fast forward to fifteen years later and everything about growing up poor has only encouraged me to travel the world.
How do you travel the world if you have no money? That seems to be the million dollar question. Well, if you grow up without much, you learn a few things. At least I did.
