I hate that phrase, it always irritates me, especially when others say it to me. “Stay the course,” “Keep calm and carry on,” etc, etc.
The frustrating thing is that those phrases are right, they are good, they are what most of us, myself included, need to hear from time to time.
The other is to be reminded that change is not quick, there is not montage to quickly go from novice to expert in two minutes or less; life is not like that.
The troubling thing is that we have to go through the boring and tedious bits in order to get to the end and achieve our goal.
The same is true for me, for while I can see and envision myself being totally debt free I am not there yet, in fact I am just over a year away, and that is a tough year of tight budgets.
Then again, scrimping, saving, and economizing are not new to me, so I can and will do this. I will also be celebrating being totally debt free in one year’s time.
That will be a glorious day, something worth celebrating, and yes worth going through all that I have gone through.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
