I know that if it was easy to become debt free then everyone would have already achieved their goals many, many moons ago. For Mr. M and me, we have hit our two year mark this month of our debt free journey an anniversary that I’m not proud of celebrating. Even though I know that at the end of this journey I’ll be able to “live like no one else”, I still face many temptations.
Mostly superficial things (like clothes) that I for some reason feel like I need to have even though designer clothes are truly wants not needs. I know…its childish…I should be a grown-up and be thankful that I even have clothes but sometimes there is a tiny little person inside of me that whines – “It’s not fair!”
How do you handle days like this when you’re faced with temptations? Do you give yourself a pep-talk? My current solution is to listen to the pod casts of Dave Ramsey and read your blogs as it helps me realize that those with the clothes that I want are probably up to their eye balls in debt. Mr. M reminds me from time to time that we could be debt free or like Stanley….
