So, here you are in all your budgeting glory getting your adulting on but you realize there is still room to save more money to put towards your financial goals. Typically you would think this is a easy fix, save the money and do what you have to do, right? Yes, until you realize what you would have to give up to save that money… YOUR SPACE!
I’m a dork, I make an honest living and I don’t complain. I am nice and good to people even strangers. I don’t waste my money on silly fads because I don’t want to fit in and I want to stand out. I like to read and not just books about sex. I don’t have crazy piercings or tattoos, I’m just plain.
So as I am mentally preparing myself for this fast, I have so much other stuff happening. I am in desperate need of some calm. I haven’t had time to budget, clean, wash clothes, or even be normal. I decided in order to allow this fast to work the way I need it to work I must reset everything. It would be like washing your clothes and not drying them before putting them back on.
To be truly honest with myself, some characteristics I think I have, I don’t. I would like to think of myself as patient but I’m nowhere near as patient as I think. I may be patient with other people or patient in certain circumstances but I’m really not all that patient. I think this lack of patience allows me to stay in a state of disappointment.
People will make time for the things they want. So I have come to the conclusion I will no longer listen to how people say they feel or the things they may do. I am now looking at only the time they are willing to give to me, if any time at all.
