Peace of Mind for this Brand New Year

Every time new year comes we tend to draw a list of things that we wanted to achieve. This is a good thing if we take the responsibility and be accountable of whatever goals we listed. The best thing to do I believe is make an attainable goals. Something that is very realistic and achievable.

This year, our family is very thankful for the blessings that we received the past year. The big responsibility that we embraced was owning our first home. In a big way, this teaches us how to become more mindful of our spending. And another thing that really changes us is how we look at security and making sure the property and us living in are covered.

Every night when I go to sleep I made sure everything is checked. Those that can cause harm, like fire is secured. Fireplaces turned off, if we light jar candles it should be turned off after use, appliances on the counter tops unplug, and so on and so forth. When we talked to our home insurance provider, we made sure that building and contents are covered. This is not being paranoid of things but just to become at peace and not to worry if anything happen.

My best friend that lives in Wales, UK told me she does the same. They have a detached, 2-storey house and sometimes her husband is not home especially at night because of work. She always check every rooms in the house before going to sleep. Not only doors and windows but also sockets and anything that can cause harm or fire. She insured everything so she will not worry if something will happen. Same with us, I am glad that when we signed for our mortgage, home insurance is a requirement. This made us worry-free while we sleep in our humble abode.

We don't have our own home yet. But it doesn't mean that it is not important to always keep the house safe and secure.

Praying for a peaceful New Year to you and your family.
