If you have a dream, you have to do more than just think about it. Take at least one small step toward it every day. That’s my philosophy.
I’ve always been one of those folks who researches everything before they do it, or decide to buy something. So of course it would take me a long time to figure out what to do with my life. Even now, at age 42, I’m still figuring it out.
This blog is going to be about my journey to climbing over the mountain of student loan debt I’ve accumulated (120K+ as of September 2013), to simplifying my life, to loving my animals and people in my life, and to being as physically fit as I can be. It’s my goal over the next three years or so to pay down at least $20,000 more of student loan debt, minimize my possessions as much as possible while saving for a tiny house or a new way of life, take care of my menagerie of four-legged furballs, and myself, as well as being the best friend I can be to those around me. It’s just going to take a lot of work and motivation in the meantime. That’s alright, I know that things that are worth it aren’t always easy to obtain or achieve. So I hope you’ll enjoy coming along for the ride with me!
Update as of September 2015:
I’ve changed jobs and am now working as an animal caregiver, and in the southwestern part of the US!!!!! But I’m not done chasing dreams, so stay with me, please!
