During the past 6 months, I have been walking a journey of paying off student debt, taking better care of my health/wellness, and writing more.
As I write this, I am more contented than ever. However, during this journey I have fallen off the proverbial wagon a few times but, the difference is that these lapses were temporary. Truth be told, I did not enjoy those fast food meals at all.
Instead, I kept thinking about how much better my homemade Black Forest bacon asiago cheese organic bison slider tasted. When it came to spending, I did not fall off the wagon too much. My healthy habits yielded a 15 pound weight loss which necessitated me into buying new clothes.
I budgeted out a certain amount of money into my budget for a new wardrobe. I glanced around my bare bones apartment and decided to put money towards decorating my apartment. This has resulted in me staying home more and spending less money out.
I have made strides towards paying off debt but, I am still in the midst of the journey. Acknowledging small victories are key during this stage of the journey but, I still have to stay focused on walking the path to getting out of debt and staying healthy.
