They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, but in my case it has become an addiction😁 I’m the friend who starts a million and one things and never seem to follow-through.
The last 2 years my mantra was “be consistent.” It may have taken about a year and a half for it to finally sink in, but it did. I’m pretty sure mid-2016 was around the time it happened when I completed my first marathon. I spent most of the summer and all of fall training. It took some serious commitment especially on the weekends I wanted to lounge.
There was absolutely no way that I could have winged running 26.2 miles even though I have ran a dozen races and over 6 half-marathons since I began running 6 years ago. It took consistency to follow through.
Never would I have thought that I could enjoy balancing my budget and paying off my debt. It is seriously like a fun, yet frightening experience. All the years of living passively with my finances and the wealth of information I have read and was coached on is now making sense. I am a month into my debt-free movement and I am challenging myself to remain committed to this process.
Being addicted, well maybe I should say passionate, has been a blessing and I hope this journey will inspire others to begin.
