Working to lose debt...
Tuesday, September 18, 2007
So, after accomplishing my weight loss goal, my goal has been to get rid of debt. I figure its done in just the same way. Making some sacrifices today for a bigger picture; making small choices day-to-day, and seeing small changes until one day - We're debt free!
I remember it being a struggle when I first started changing the way I ate and exercising. I was so frustrated that it didn't go faster. That is the way I am feeling right now. Working tons of extra hours, spending little to nothing extra, and well, there is very little change on the financial statements.
Gratefully, I have been through this already. I already know that the changes will be small (if there are any at first). I feel all the pains of changing and working and see no results... yet.
I am excited for that day when I open up a bill, and the balance says $0!!! And in not too long, I will have paid off the first debt, so the 2nd debt will go twice as fast. (Twice as much money to spend towards the debt.) And it will keep snowballing!
So, although today things aren't working as fast as I want them to, it feels good to know that we will still hit our goal, and it will still feel sooooo good!
