Financial Goals

So I decoded that the best way to accomplishment my goals and stay on track with debt repayment and addiction recovery is to voice it out loud to friends and fans!!

My first financial goal is to pay $1000 credit card and overdraft off by mid April!!

My second financial goal is to pay $1500 cibc card off mid May!! Plus overdraft!!

My third financial goal is to bring down my sears card as well by mid july!!

My other card is 6800 and i thought id conquer small cards first!!!

Unwelcome Lessons

I have learned a lesson today about what I thought was a real friendship but this lesson or instance has left me doubting the validity of the connection!!!

As you all know i struggle with depression and anxiety and this diagnosis has taken me down many different difficult paths!!
In the midst of the depression I lost who I was – lost my identity, my passions and hobbies got forgotten!!

I finally am starting to feel like myself again and getting back to things that brought me peace and enjoyment as well as focusing on my goals to turn the negativity from my shopping addiction into something positive!!!

I would have thought that anyone who cared about me would have been supportive and encouraging, but I learned that not everyone is embracing who I am!! I have been accused of not being myself and losing who I am!!

This from someone who I considered a close friend – at first I considered it but something was not sitting right with the statements so I spoke to my husband about my concerns!!

He said that he feels I am doing really good and he says he is proud of me,so I am left wheeling about why a friend would use such statements!

Should friends not cheer you on?

Check out this blog – great work!!

There are just some things in our life that we can’t keep putting off.

Many of us choose the road of least resistance. We either avoid it or sweep it under the carpet and pray for it to go away. Some things don’t ever just go away. They fester and raise until you can’t avoid them any longer

Then that thing you kept putting off becomes something even bigger.

So where do we start putting those things back into perspective and making them right?

When my youngest daughter gets a splinter she won’t let anyone pull it out. It hurts and she cries a lot. But she screams and runs away if she thinks you are going to touch the splinter. We’ll put ice on it to sooth the pain, but it only last for a little while. The area still gets red and eventually infected.

Only when it’s filled with pus and billing…
