Did you find it hard to understand "double entry bookkeeping" while still in college?
No, I found it easy and interesting to learn. The fact that "every debit must have a credit" made me excited to look for the accounts to be debited and credited, while I was new to understanding the difference between "Income" and "Expenses". I infact found it difficult to grasp that "Income" and "Sales" were one and the same. I thought of "Income" as earnings of the business (something coming in) and pondered why where they "credited" instead of being "debited"?
Then came the interesting task of making a correct "Trial Balance". Many of the times in the beginning, I wouldn't get the "Trial Balance" correct and thus no way to proceed further towards the "Profit & Loss Statement" and the "Balance Sheet".
The Accounting Equation (Assets = Capital + Liabilities) was also to be rerun in my mind whenever I was to design the Balance Sheet. I liked playing with numbers from the beginning and the study of "Introductory Financial Accounting" sufficed to my interests and make me ponder over the subject. Finally and unexpectedly I gained good marks in the exam. But I still enjoy the fun and excitement I had in the "Financial Accounting" studies.

How diligent are you with your personal accounting?How often do you add debits and credits to personal bank ledger? I try to enter each debit the day I make them, as well as any credits. Do you do it daily, weekly, monthly or never?

Why is it so hard to understand that forgiveness does not mean you will still be a part of my life?I can forgive people, but I have no need, inclination, or want to keep them in my life. Do you feel the same? Do you believe with forgiveness automatic trust comes with it?
