So, there I was, questioning my life choices as I looked both ways to try to cross a busy street where there was no crosswalk.
As I darted across the road laden down with my shoulder-bag and backpack I thought “Who does this?”(I do that a lot during the winter months.)
I had to cross the road because the spot where I usually park during workdays is unavailable due to a “Snow Route Parking Ban.”
Essentially when we get over a certain amount of snow the city declares one of these things where you can’t park on major routes (like bus routes).
It lasts for three days, but can be done quicker, or last longer, again, at the discretion of the city.
So, this means that I have to park in another spot a full industrial block away. It is on the other side of that major road, thus the mad dash through traffic.
(Okay, it wasn’t all that bad, as I may be a little off, but I’m not suicidal.)
Yet, as I got to work I had to remind myself that I am doing this because this is the best and fastest way to accomplish my goals.
The more cash I save now, the faster I will get this part of my life over and done with. Then I can move on to the Homesteading Process.
In order to do that I need to simply get through this winter, and . . . you know . . . more than likely three more winters after this.
Then I will have my target savings built up, and then I can finally move on.
I just remind myself that people who want to succeed do the things that others don’t want to do, are unable to find the courage within themselves to do.
Yet, I don’t need to have all the answers in order to do this, all I need to know is what I need to do this week, today, in order to move me in the direction of my goals.
The other thing I need is the courage to do that, and the determination to see it through . . . one step at a time.
Or in my case, one mad dash across a busy street at a time.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
