Where’s my wallet?

I’m almost done reading the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. I’ve had the book for almost a year and I’m slapping myself for not reading it sooner. If you have not read it, I think you totally should. It is so inspiring whether you want to become a millionaire or not. This book definitely belongs to the category of “life changing”.

Anyway, I’m so inspired by it that I decided to commit on cleaning up my act with regards to money. I know I have declared I wanted 2013 to be my year with regards to health and fitness. Well, I want 2013 to be a financially responsible year too. (The husband is doing a great job managing all our finances at home so I only need to manage my own small personal money.)

So, I Googled for “personal finance software”, downloaded some to try out and reached for my wallet inside my purse.

No wallet.


I extend my hand more, swish, swish right left, right left into the bottom of the purse.

No wallet.

I take out ALL the things in the purse and…no wallet!

Now, this is where you find that brain function to flash back everything that happened in the past 24 hours. But the brain still didn’t know where the wallet is. I started to ask myself whether the toddler has eaten it at home. Or hidden it somewhere. But no, the look on Benjamin’s face says he’s got nothin’ to do with my wallet!

I went home and looked everywhere, including stupid places like inside the refrigerator. You’ll never know, RIIIGGGHTT?

In case you didn’t know: misplacing your wallet is worse than misplacing your phone. Why? Well, at least you can call the phone!

There was some cash in it, not substantial so that was ok – what I worry more are the CARDS. We live in a world where an average Joe owns at least 5 cards. I called the banks and blocked the credit cards (I’ve got two). It must have been stolen because they said no one has used the card yet, but still, to be sure. I cannot afford to lose more money due to my stupidity. I can only imagine how I’m going to manage to replace the government cards for me and the children (why was I even carrying those in my wallet!?)

After some turn of events that required a lot of stunts, I finally found the wallet. I kissed it and promised to love it more and not lose it again. I feel like I’ve spent my daily energy quota in only a few hours. I blew it. I don’t want to blow it again!


    1. The book is full of inspiring and motivating stuff. It’s only 34 dhs in Kinokuniya ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let me know if you have bought it, would love to talk about it with someone hehehe

      this is one of the books I would recommend EVERYONE to read, as in EVERYONE! ๐Ÿ™‚



  1. I have lost my wallet before and turned every paper, book, sweater over to find it. About the time I am ready to give up, I will find it. Then I swear to never be that careless again. Of course I am, and it happens all again!



    1. Happens all the time. When we give up, that’s when thing start to turn up! While searching for my wallet, I found my wrist watch that was lost since Christmas! And I can’t believe it was just there – I swear I looked into that part of the house before!



  2. I’m so glad you found it! I’ve known that panic that hits you when you believe you’ve lost it or had it stolen, Eeeeekk!



    1. A friend of mine left her wallet in the bus and it was returned to her. Dubai is a pretty safe city and people are afraid to take things and be caught by police since that could mean deportation and lifetime ban…

      Still, if it was indeed stolen, I’d really cry over the time (and money!) I’ll have to get those cards again!
