Here we are on the last day of January and 2018 is already 1/12th over. I will admit that this month has not turned out as I had expected, yet this is somewhat “normal”.
I am used to things not quite going as planned, yet somehow levelling out to being at least somewhat okay, if not better than I had planned.
I have spent on stuff that I hadn’t planned on spending on (the mattress, etc) and still plan to spend more (the repairs and upgrades).
At first I was going to carry that debt, but soon I quashed that thought.
I choose to be debt free, if I can help it and I will remain so, if for no other reason than for my own piece of mind.
So I am back to shoving my savings plan back and hoping that a few good bounces can help makeup that lost time.
Things will work out and just because things don’t go as you had planned, as the good book says “Don’t Panic!”
(No, not “that” good book, but “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”)
But seriously, if things do go awry, just deal with what you have to deal with and move forward from where you are. Berating, or belittling yourself (or anyone) will not help at all.
As for me, I will fix what needs to be fixed, and I will build up my savings and I will buy that land and start the homesteading process as I found that town.
It is all a question of when and exactly how.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
