I find that my life these days is pretty much work and waiting. I do what I need to do, but otherwise I stick around the house and stay focussed on spending as little as possible.
This is my life and the truth be told I could certainly have a nicer life if I were to loosen the purse strings, so to speak, and just spend more.
That would lead to me being in the same position I was a few years ago, blowing through cash, living comfy, yet with a bleak future ahead of me.
I am in the midst of this savings crunch to get over this last hurdle and finally be on the right track to financial independence and yes freedom altogether.
I am doing what I am doing in order to correct my lifetime of fiscal mismanagement and fix a problem that has dogged me all of my working life: the living with debt problem.
I am happy that the warmer weather is here to stay and that I have fresh water in my tanks. I count my blessings that I can BBQ on a regular basis and enjoy the sun shine.
I am thankful that I am, all things considered, doing rather well. I have food, shelter, savings building up, and I am on track to be debt free this fall.
There are many things that I want to do, yet I have to restrain myself . . . for now. As I have set ambitious goals for myself and laid out a very stringent budget in order to achieve them.
Achieve them I will, and in the mean time I will continue to live a dull life, because that is the cheapest way to live.
I can’t even read a book or otherwise plan for what I will do once I get my land. That is far too far into the future and it hurts to think of it too long.
I need to become debt free first, for me it is the final obstacle that I must overcome, my final debt to the banks to end my eternal indentured servitude.
Call it a bit melodramatic, but that is the way it feels, for with debt, one is never free, one is always tied to your job. I want more than that, I want my freeeeeeddoooooooom!
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
