As a Milwaukee bankruptcy law office, we spend most of the year crunching numbers, defending and protecting our clients’ financial futures, and otherwise just “getting down to business.” We love what we do and are passionate about it too, but we, of all people, can certainly understand the hectic pace of life and the stress that accompanies everyday life financial matters. Even we need to remind ourselves once in a while that there are other things in life.
This time of year, we find it helpful to stop and reflect on the year past and the year to come. Since we live, eat, and breathe finances the rest of the year, it’s good for us to remember that there is so much more to life than just the stress of financial decisions. To be sure, if you’re facing financial hardship, it can certainly seem like that cloud of hardship hangs over your entire life, and we realize that feeling can be overwhelming.
But at this time of year, it’s great to pause and take note of everything else important in life. It’s a time of year to be together with friends and family, a time to share stories and laugh and turn your thoughts to those who are near and dear in your life.
When you are facing a difficult financial situation, it can be all too easy to let those concerns and worries occupy and control your thoughts. Maybe the issues seem to loom even larger at this time of year as you worry about buying presents, entertaining, traveling, or just taking care of some of the extra expense that comes along with the holiday season.
One of our favorite holidays at Burr Law Office LLC is New Year’s Day. A new year represents a fresh start – a clean slate. It’s a time to nip those bad habits in the bud, recommit to relationships with friends and family, or make a resolution to live a little healthier lifestyle. In a lot of ways, it’s representative of what we help our clients do with their financial situations – get a fresh start and have hope for a prosperous financial future.
So at this time of year, we encourage you to not let your financial hardships get in the way of what’s really important in life and what we celebrate this time of year. Even though your financial issues may be looming large in your mind, make sure to take the time to appreciate friends and family, and take the opportunity to take a step back from the stress you deal with the rest of the year.
And, if it helps you rest a little easier or put your mind at ease, make a plan to give Burr Law Office LLC a call after the holidays or in the new year.
