81 Days

Something that you do every day is better than something you do once in a while.

I’m taking good habits here. Drinking alcohol every day instead of once in a while is not an example of a good thing to do.

I am not conscious of having good money habits once a week, or only once in a while. Every day I think carefully about money. Every day I am careful to make sure I never have the habits I once did.

I feel that the Flo that got me into this mess couldn’t be further removed from the Flo I am now, but maybe the Flo of the past had to exist in order to make me the person I am now.

If you believe in that cosmic stuff.

I have nearly counted down a fifth of the amount of days of my 100 day countdown. When I’m running a race, and I find it difficult, I break it down. I remember the very first 10k I did where I ran the entire distance. I wasn’t finding it easy. But after I did the first 1k I just said to myself you just have to do 9 more of that, and it wasn’t so hard. When I reached the 5k point I said to myself you just have to do the same again, and you can.

Provided I become debt free on the 27th August then I will have been on a debt free journey for 1727 days. A long time by any definition. It would have been nice if I had been debt free by my 30th birthday like I was originally aiming for, but we can’t have everything we want. Things got in the way. Things didn’t go to plan. But I survived and got through it. And I am making it now.

I hope you all have a lovely rest of Sunday.
