Living With Less

Living and making do with less is something that I know how to do. Figuring out how to survive on next to nothing is a skill I have in abundance, as is the determination to work that plan to success. 

This is neither a skill nor a determination that I chose to have; it is something that I have developed over time due to necessity. I have been living in ‘crisis mode’ for so long that that has become ‘normal’. 

Living with abundance, that is something I have yet to learn and master, due to inexperience. I will take things slowly and one step at a time, one paycheque at a time. I will plan out what to do with each paycheque and how to use it towards my goal of debt freedom. 

While you can, and should, plan for the future, focus on the here and now and do the little things that you can to nudge yourself towards your goal. With enough and persistant nudging, over time, you will find that you have reached your goal. 

Having  said that, as dull and hard as the next two weeks will be, I know that I will make it and be fine. I have been here before; I have had to manage on next to nothing many times before. The only difference is that now, as I do it, I am not doing it just to survive but to get myself back on track after a month that threw me askew. Things happen, but I will: react, recover and carry on, of this you can be sure.

Yesterday was a good day as I wrote at the library and made good progress. I am back today and plan to add a new chapter to Part One of the book, a pivotal chapter in Brian’s backstory. 

Tonight I will plug in and be back on my work schedule for the next week, as the workweek begins anew. I hope to have a good start and continue with my work on Part Two and move this momentous project forward.
