“Having children makes you see the world in a completely different way.
When you’re responsible for those little lives, you can’t slough it off or forget about it until later.”

“If you can’t ‘Bank’, there’s no need to work. If I want to do a charity or freebie, I will choose that on my own.
But, basically, I work to see “Okay, the nut is cracked what do I have left to put into the bank?”
Because the bottom line is to capitalize on my health and success, or popularity, at this moment;
because it’s not promised to me in the future (and to prepare for that future).
Even if I become more so, there’s no one to promise that to me. I’d be a fool to cry later and say,
“I can’t pay my bills; I don’t have anything.”, and whatever. I don’t want to be one of those people.
I want to say, “Look, when it was time to make hay, I made it. I’m like a little ant, I went merrily to the bank and put it away.””
