I am breathing a sigh of relief. I got the ball rolling on my financial stuff yesterday. I had to go thru all my bills and lots of paperwork trying to find what I needed. I was so anxious about doing tha. Anxious in a bad way. Then I remembered what Roxie's daughter was telling her. Money and emotions don't mix. I had to remind myself that money is totally unrelated to my true self worth. Money problems take take me back to my using days. UGH! Not good memories. TCB tells me that I'm a piece of crap. A loser. To pick up that bat and swing away. Not today, BABY!
After rereading Roxie's post, I felt so much better. I got on my knees and asked for help. I had a calm come over me and I went to the appointment totally organized with everything I needed. I am even going to go through my files at home and start over and reorganize. I feel really good about my decision about the action I have taken.
Another really good decision I have made recently is to be more consistent with charitable contributions. Mormons pay a tenth of the income in tithing. I am ashamed to admit that I let myself get so in debt that paying my tithing came second instead of 1st. I am noticing that I am making much better financial decisions and my spending isn't as reckless. I love it when I can recognize those kinds of things.
Got my 4 miles in this morning and I am walking out the door to watch my Gson play peewee football. Then we are going out for brunch. Then a movie with a friend I haven't seen for awhile. Tomorrow will be church and then a nice Sunday nap. I want to get put a good dent in revamping and updating all my filing. Tomorrow afternoon seems like a great time to get started.
Hope everyone is having a great May Day! Where did April go?? Got a new pool key. Probably start using that sucker next weekend. Still too cool here yet. I am not complaining. It will be hot as hell soon enough.
