So, as you all know, I am well-entrenched in my Grand Savings Plan, the plan to save up enough for me to start my town.
Yet, the exact number and the exact end date keeps shifting around on me.
This is because my estimated dollar amount keeps shifting and my estimated time to save that amount up also proves illusive.
I will keep clomping on forward and simply focus on this year, on this pay period with an eye to the next two. This is the way that I have always done things.
I have grand goals and ambitions, but I have found that such lofty goals are brought down to the ground and made real by the actions we take in the here and now.
I know that this Grand Savings Plan will take years to complete, after all I don’t make a CEO’s salary.
(This is in reference to when the news happily tells us that two days into the new year that the average CEO has made the average worker’s yearly salary.)
All I can do is do the best with the resources that I have in hand and keep moving ahead at a steady pace.
Perseverance, dedication and patience are keys to this kind of endeavour.
It is especially frustrating when you have to wait two weeks to take one step forwards, on the long journey ahead of you.
Yet if you do not take that step, and the one after that, and the one after that, and so on, you will never get to your destination.
So, I will keep moving forward and keep working on my Grand Savings Plan, even though I don’t know exactly when it will end.
I only know that it will, and it will end in success, as that is what I am determined to see happen. (But, you know, donations will be gladly accepted, of course.)
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
