freedom aint free

The Road to debt freedom is paved with obstacles. Remember, this is not forever, and it is for your benefit. These three years will go by quickly and in the end you will look back and say it was well worth it. You will have moments where you will shout life is not fair, or, I wish I just had what someone else had. Well life is not fair according to your standards, and you don’t have what others have. And remarkably none of this is negative. Your experiences and challenges will continue to mold you into the person you are becoming. Three years from now you will say this was not easy, but you did it. You are creating habits that will benefit not only yourself, but your family. You are preparing a future for your posterity, and that is priceless. So today while you are hopeful and excited about this journey remember, you will have days where you will scream, and cry, and be frustrated, but it is all a part of the process. Record your feelings and thoughts. Note your progress, and reward yourself in healthy ways. Rewarding yourself does not mean you buy something new all the time, it may be sharing your experience or reflecting on where you’ve come from. No this is not how you pictured your life, but it’s the hand you’ve been dealt. So play your hand, make wise choices, ask for guidance from the Holy Spirit, and allow yourself to be stretched. Allow yourself to grow, especially in those moments where you feel as if you are not moving forward. Don’t think short term, remember slow and steady wins the race; this is a marathon not a sprint. Read this often. Create a board or wall (you used to laugh at this, but now it makes sense) that represents the things you’d like to accomplish, and be open if these things change. Good luck girl, you can do it!! Look how much you’ve done already!!! Porshe LaChelle Chiles July 9, 2013
