Troubles Staring Down The Long Road . . . Again

I have been having motivational problems as of late, all related to this new savings drive, my new Crossroads Goal.

As I looked at that spreadsheet with every payday on it in a nice grid format for this year through 2022, it was a bit disheartening. 

All of those empty boxes with space for where to put what I put into my savings accounts all waiting to be filled.

Each box would have to wait two weeks from when the previous box was filled in before its number would be entered.

Once again, a long slow climb, once again another lofty goal I have set for myself. Once again, I am staring down four more years of this lifestyle. 

It is also quite frustrating when I am mentally ready to go when it comes to the homesteading process. 

I am ready to start to tackle those problems of finding the right patch of land. Of then staring to establish a town and getting it ready for people to arrive. 

Yet I am four years away from starting that process, of entering that phase of my life. 

I will get there though, I just have to get through this fundraising portion of my life. 

I am trying to keep focussed on this aspect of my life, of keeping focussed on what I can do here, today to move me closer towards that goal.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.

  1. You and I want the same thing, my wife and I are closer than you but still a long way off. I might have a suggestion if you can meet with us this weekend.
