The Alphabet has 25 more letters. Stay Cool.
I just stumbled on this inspirational quote today and felt like I had to write a short blog post to share it with all my readers.
I’m about to reach a HUGE milestone soon in my journey to a debt-free life. By the end of this week on LUCKY Friday the 13th, I will be consumer debt-free. Yes, that original $12,000 personal loan will be all paid off and it only took me 9 months to do so. It’s all anti-climactic really.
I’m still drowning in student loan debt but let’s just focus on the positives today.
Those of you who have followed my journey from the beginning (December 2012) will know that I had many set-backs along the way, but I also had many “wins” as well.
Debt repayment, no matter the amount, will always feel like a long journey, things will NEVER go as planned, there will be tears, there will be joys, there will be fatigue, there will be celebrations, there will be unexpected expenses, and unexpected cash windfall but the one thing to remember is THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR GIVING UP.
My “Plan A” didn’t work. Truthfully I’m probably on “Plan W” by now, but I’m going to stay cool. $45,000 student loan – GMD is coming after you!
