Recently we shared that we might not reach our goal to become debt free by December 2019. The numbers don’t seem possible looking at our projected income for the next 3 months. I thought I was okay with this, after all we have accomplished the unimaginable by throwing so much money to debt in the past 16 months but the reality is that I am lowkey annoyed and it is showing up in our spending.
It is the 7th of October and our pocket money is gone. Self sabotage at its finest 😪. After making our snowball payment last month and realizing that we have to pay approximately $4500 every month to reach our goal 🤯, all bets were off. We gave up, bought lunch three days back to back, I went to the hair store for 1 item and left with a bag full, proceeded to the store next door and bought even more stuff, smoothies were bought and just when we knew the money was gone GONE, we bought ice cream on Saturday 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏿♂️ My best friend gave me a reality check last night which included that I have not been posting on the debtfreecaribbean page like before and it’s true. So here I am professing my insecurities and saying I had a pity party because things aren’t going how I planned 😫. We need to pull ourselves together and finish the year strong even if we are unable to claim debt freedom.
It also had me thinking, they’re persons who follow our journey and are intrigued to start their own but can never get it done. This is also self sabotage. You’re probably subconsciously thinking It’s better to never start than to start and fail or that you just can’t get it done. If this is you, feel free to reach out to us. Committing to start is hard but trust us, you won’t regret it.
