Commit to Financial Independence – Recommitting

Recommitting to Financial Independence-

October is here. Later this month I will be turning 27. Later this month will mark the third year since my mother passed away.

I never imagined I would lose my mom so early. I still can’t believe it. I thought that she would grow old and that I would get to help support her in those times. I looked forward to the time where I could finally give back to someone who gave me so much.

I have lots of good memories with my mother and I try to remember those times more than thinking sad thoughts.

Recommitting to Financial Independence-

As my birthday approaches I am thinking about what I have learned over the course of my life. I am thinking about how I would like to spend the rest of my life. I have been reflecting on who I am and who I would like to become.

Life is so precious and you only get one chance at it. I don’t want to waste it.

I have huge dreams and plenty of reasons to push towards them.

Yet here I am, not taking action, not pushing, not making progress. Spending too much time thinking and dreaming without taking the steps necessary to make progress. Or not being consistent in my actions after I develop a plan.

Distracting myself to not feel bad. Making excuses and telling myself that I am doing okay.

I don’t have one minute to waste.

I do not want to spend another year acting like this. I want to be making progress towards my goals. I want to be earning more money, spending less, and investing again instead of just maintaining my bills and debts.

Let’s get back to work

    I am nearly twice as old as you, and have made so many plans that have fallen through and failed to meet so many goals… it sometimes seems hopeless. But I am not willing to throw in the towel and give up: as long as we’re still breathing, there is hope. Set the bar high, and don’t compromise unless the result is worth it. Best of luck to you!
