Advent Financial Calendar Box Day 22

in Advent, Christian, Christmas

This is the final Sunday in Advent and the festival of Christmas is almost at hand so today’s box has in it something of great importance during this season, it is a DVD of one of my favorite movies “The Shawshank Redemption” (amazon link).

You may be thinking that is neither Adventy, Financial or Christmassy, what does it have to do with this thematic premise? The movie is just a nice gift, the important part is Redemption.

One of those Movie you have to watch (Amazon Link)

During the time of Christmas countless movies and stories are told where the main character finds Redemption in their life so they can begin again and live a happy and fulfilled life.

In a Christmas Carol Scrooge finds out the true meaning of what his wealth is and the good he can do with it, in the Grinch the true meaning of the season comes to an odd furry character and to George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life when he thinks the world has turned against him, he finds he is mistaken.

Advent is a time for Redemption both Spiritually and Financially. Past sins, mistakes and wrong doings can be forgiven and new habits and lifestyles can be forged, if you wish. If you have failed badly with your finances, now is a good time to start working on new ways in  your personal finance to succeed.

As a note, Shawshank Redemption did have a Financial angle to it, as Andy Dufresne was in fact a Banker and he did run a lot of shady financial “scams” while inside Shawshank Prison too.

Remember to “Get busy living“.
