I have two:
1. If you need it, it will be there for you. This was so true last fall when I hurt my foot. I don't tow a car, but when I hurt my foot, a friend was visiting me at the time, so the friend took me to the doctor. And, instead of buying crutches, I got on the Good Sam buddy network or whatever they call it (Standby Sams?) and found someone who had crutches they were no longer using.
2. It's about the experience not about the money. This one can go two ways:
A. If it's an expenditure, like "I can stay at X for free, but it will cost me Y to stay at this other place, I try to say, "What experience do I want" instead of how much it's going to cost me. Staying at a Forest Service campground with no hookups isn't about how CHEAP it is, it's about..... "I need an excuse to run my generator." Over-nighting at a Wal-Mart isn't about the fact that it's FREE, it's about..... "I need groceries" or "In the morning, I can just wake up and drive, nothing to pack up." It's all about "what experience do I want that evening or the next morning?"
B. If it's about earning money, one winter I was planning to work at Amazon.com. I would have earned a lot of money doing that, but I hurt my foot and had to back out. I ended up getting a job at an RV park. Didn't earn much, but it was the better thing for me to do.
