Progress

Progress

“For the last half-hour, I’ve been happily doing my banking and I realized how much progress I’ve made. Being broke has never been acceptable or comfortable. In fact, it’s been extremely stressful and painful. But over the years it’s become very familiar. Like an abusive parent that’s better than no attention at all. My income has increased significantly since we started working together. I’m having no problem setting aside tax reserves, setting aside a little something for emergencies, having $$ to go just do stuff and I’m quicky paying down my credit cards. I know there’s work still to be done, but I wanted to share that we’re making progress. Getting out of broke is a lousy goal. Getting to plenty and a life that’s focused on living rather than on money is ultimately where I want to be. But I’m seeing major movement in the right direction. There’s still a gremlin that wanted to keep me stuck, but he’s just loud rather than effective at the moment. The louder he is, the more I know I’m heading in the right direction.” — Mark Herdering
