Happy New Year to all! I started my new year off with a bang! I got a phone call at 9:30am yesterday morning informing me that I have a job! It’s not my dream job, but I am so thankful. My husband and I will be able to pay those credit card minimums in no time! I have had a smile on my face for two days now. Things are looking up for us. Cutting up those credit cards was the best idea we’ve had in awhile! Dave Ramsey refers to the cutting up of the cards as a ‘plasectomy’ – I love it! If you seem unable to control your credit card debt, if your balances continue to increase each month, CUT UP ALL OF YOUR CARDS. You will not regret it!
As far as resolutions go, aside from the huge promise to myself to stop debting and to get rid of our credit card debt, I have a few other plans. I would also like to stop my tendency to think negatively about things. I’d like to be more mindful and in the moment, especially when I am with my family. Of course, I also have to throw in that I would like to do some form of physical exercise at least every other day. I popped in a vinyasa yoga DVD this morning – what a fantastic way to start the day! I definitely need to do that more often.
I hope this year will bring you success in all that you hope to accomplish! What are some of your goals for 2010?
