Is your money managing you?

I came across this quote from Dave Ramsey a little while ago.  It really struck a chord with me in how I think about managing my finances.  I would like to think that I manage my money, that I am in control,  that I am the one making the choices.  But, when I look at how I make my choices, it’s apparent that I am making them by the parameters my money set for me.

And this isn’t the confines of the budget that I’ve completely disregarded this past month; it’s the fact that I can’t explore all options when making a decision because I don’t have enough money. It’s time that I start thinking about my budget and money management with every choice rather than just the big ticket ones. What about you?  Is your money actually making the decisions for you?
