Hey guys! How are you all doing? I’ll be honest — September and October were rough for me. We had a death in the family, unexpected health issues, and other changes in our lives. I feel like I got hit hard across the jaw with a killer right hook. Ouch! But I guess that’s life. You learn to roll with the punches and do what you can. I am happy to report things seem to be moving up. So here’s hoping November pays off more than September and October did.
Having said that, let’s see how I did:
Credit Cards/Personal: $1,208.13 (down from $4,998.93)
Medical: $2,808.75 (down from $4,521.62)
Student Loans: $25,206.48 (down from $26,000.56)
So, that’s $1,439.47 over the past two months. That’s not bad, right? Not quite what I wanted, but that’s okay. I know I got emotional and fell off the wagon a few times. But, hey, I’m human. Things happen and sometimes we react in less than stellar ways. I’m not here to judge or condemn myself, nor would I do the same to you. I think that’s just human nature. The good news is I did pay off that high-interest debt, which is awesome! I need to stay positive and focus on the little changes I have made so far. And paying off a high-interest debt is a phenomenal change!
I’m keeping my eye on the prize and pushing forward. What’s done is done. Today is a new day and a new opportunity to get back on track. You and I? We got this!
