101 in 1001 update #20!!!
I have a HUGE thing to add, not cross off but add this week, I'm now at 3/6 of #20 Pay off my debt. I have now paid off all of my credit cards (excluding interest on the last month of the one I just paid). This one is HUGE for me, even though its not totally done yet. It wasn't easy, mostly because I wanted to spend the money on a lot of things (a couch, new clothes, a dress for my Bday, a make up consultation) and I also have never had that much money in the bank before and I wanted to save it. Ultimately I decided it felt right to do. I also had set a goal a year and a half ago to pay off all my debt by my birthday yesterday and for it felt like it was the right thing to do. I also decided to believe that it will be ok, that I'll make and save the money again - which I think is honestly a larger accomplishment than paying it off in it of itself.
Here are our regular updates:
#22 - Save a part of every paycheque - done!
#94 - Read every day - Still reading "The Naming" by Alison Croggon, I think I'm in Chapter 2, lol. I've also been reading blogs like mad as well as learning about countries of the world but more of that in the next category....
#92 - Learn/Discover something new every day
About 1/2 way through this week I've really been thinking about this one. Although I found that there is definately value is some of the things I've learned & discovered they aren't always inline with the intent of this one. I really wanted to learn more about the world at large, so I thought I decided to start looking at the countries of the world. There is less than 365 so I figure in a year I will know something about each of them. We'll see how it goes.
