The last 3 months Tom has been running back and forth between Sydney and Melbourne treating some of Australia’s most famous racehorses. He is incredibly passionate about equine welfare, and ensuring like any supreme athlete, they are in perfect condition to enjoy the race. He is lucky to work with kind and caring horse trainers who value him and his skills as part of their horses own sacred health and wellness ritual.
And with Spring Carnival upon us right now, the pressure is on.
So this weekend I decided to put my own financial goals aside and jump on a plane to be with him, see him in his craft and be there to support him and his friends and clients. We booked an upmarket hotel, went to new restaurants, drank champagne and Japanese cocktails. It was indulgent, expensive but so worth it.
Sitting in the hotel room on Sunday, sleeping in, watching a movie, even using the minibar made me realise how important it is to do these things, especially with your partner. With Rocco, the dogs, work, it is easy to let your romantic relationships fall down the ladder or priorities.
As you would know from watching my videos as how I personally manage my cashflow, I actually have a “Holiday Savings Fund”, which helps pay for these expenses in cash and enjoy them guilt free. However it made me realise that we need to do this more often, like at least quarterly, where we get away, eat different new foods, sleep in, be lazy and nature our souls.
It doesn’t need to be expensive or excessive, it just needs to be different, be often, change things up from our usual routine but most of all go back to being you, a partner a lover.
What do you do to get away with your partner without breaking the bank?
