Time to Pull Myself Together

The last little while I've had a fair amount of stress, and I'm still trying to deal with everything. With work, my health, friends and family, as well as the money situation being difficult, there never seems to be a shortage of drama, and/or stress. I'm at a better place in my life then I was two years ago, but it's still a daily battle. Lucky for me I have a couple amazing friends and a loving family to help me get through tough times. With that said, one HUGE issue that I'm dealing with at the moment is the debt that my husband and I have, just never seems to go down. Just when I think we've made some progress in getting stuff paid off and under control, something else pops up. It's one of the many reasons I don't sleep at night.



I have set myself a number of goals to try and get my stuff in order:

  • Pay off line of credit
  • Pay off MC
  • Stop using MC
  • No purchasing unnecessary items
  • Go to gym minimum 3 x's a week to relieve stress
  • Keep a spending journal
  • Plan meals and shopping a week in advance, to keep costs down
This is just the beginning of a very long and stressful process. With me working in the field of finances, I see first hand the damage of debt can cause people. I know what I have to do to try and get it together... I just gotta stay positive and strong.
