A big financial OOPS

Wasn’t it just two weeks ago that I was crowing about the major strides I’d made financially with paying off debt?  Oh, how the Universe loves to laugh!

A monetary distinction

As I continue my journey toward financial freedom, I’ve learned a lot. This week’s lesson has been the distinction between “I don’t have enough money” and “It’s not in my budget.”

A few days ago I had a conversation about getting a new piece of clothing. I said, “It’s not in my budget.” She said, …

February financial update

Financial Freedom

Here is the second of my monthly check-ins on how I’m doing with paying down debt and getting my financial life in order.

Complementary strengths (and weaknesses)

Day #2 apart from Mr. Blue Eyes and I’m still standing! 🙂

The financial revelation

Today I had just about the most perfect Sunday I can imagine with MBE.  🙂  He’s been here for three weeks with one more week to go and I’m trying to stay present and savor every moment – knowing there will be many times in the weeks and months to come when I will wish …

The pity party

Here’s the thing – I’m in no good space to be writing tonight. I woke up feeling cranky this morning and it hasn’t gotten any better as the day has gone on.  I know very well that a big part of the discomfort I’m feeling has to do with making a clear commitment to working …

Being debt-free

As I’ve documented extensively during The Miracle Challenge, I’m working now on taking control of my financial life. Since I was a child, I always felt like money controlled me rather than the other way around. Now I’m ready to change that dynamic.

Over the past couple of weeks, MBE and I have talked a …

Producer vs. Stage Manager

The last couple of days have been eye-opening to say the least.  As I focus on my attitudes about finances in The Miracle Challenge, I find that things are moving in a new direction – and it’s ONLY BEEN SEVEN DAYS!!!!  That blows me away.  Check out my Miracle Challenge post for today for an …
