A Pearl of Wisdom {by Carolyn}

Carolyn has said she blogs from the heart. Here is her pearl:

Dear Carolyn, Age 22,

Put down the credit card and chill out on the student loans. I know you think this debt will take care of itself in the future and that everyone has student loans so really, how bad could they be, and that your parents exaggerate. But the reality is that debt, no matter how much money you’ll be making in 3 years, is a burden. A huge and heavy weight that you won’t have to bear if you’d just stop spending money like there’s no tomorrow! Believe me. You can shop less and still be happy. I promise.

xoxo, Carolyn, Age 25

Please keep sending me pearls of wisdom and I will post them here. Please also feel free to send pictures with your pearls {whether your own or pictures you like that can be reproduced under Creative Commons licensing}.
