Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 16th day of January, 2018.

Well yesterday turned out to be a bit on the colder side, especially with the wind.

Tomorrow is to be about ZERO …..

Still so much better than the minus 30 windchill of last week.

 

Last night as I was watching Alvin outside …. I was thinking about a commercial that I had seen earlier in the evening.

The commercial was about the stress that people are under at this time of year due to DEBT.

Mainly credit card balances from Christmas gifts and the holidays.

It hit me like a ton of bricks, I have no CONSUMER DEBT.

I do not have to worry about trying to come up with the money to pay off a credit card.

Everything in my house from the sofa down to the cutlery is paid in full.

I do not OWE any money.

So on those odd occasions when I am feeling like I would like to go shopping – just because I think I need to or actually more like want to….

I will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I am DEBT FREE.

Funny how things come out of nowhere …. the Universe was just telling me how lucky I am.

I feel like I could jump up into the air and click my heels together or break into the song “HAPPY.”

I feel like I lost a ton of weight.

I look at it this way – I purchase what we need and not what I want.

After all so much of what we have is not really what we need.

I am creative when it comes to gift giving.

It feels great not to be drowning in credit card and loan payments.

So on this day, I am very proud of myself.

I am very grateful to be where I am.

I am grateful for the support of my family and friends along the way.

I am grateful to be navigating life in a positive manner.

I hope that you all have a great Tuesday.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who are wondering what to do ….. learn about your money.

Always, Carol & Alvin
