I have mentioned many times on here that I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions. I have always felt like if I didn’t already have it as a goal, not some date on the calendar will change my desire for that goal.
But today I was talking to a friend of mine and I were talking about our debts and I was telling him all about my savings plans and my plans to get out of debt.
It made me so excited about this upcoming year and the chance I have to get in a better financial position.
I was telling him about how this was not a very fun goal, but it does make me happy to think about the changes that will be made and the chance I have to be in a better position next year.
The chance to be in a better situation just sounds amazing and to be able to save money for my future and those future goals that might be fun makes me really excited.
My life isn’t very exciting and I am not making as much money as I used to, but I am doing these things so I can have a more exciting future and that is what makes me feel excited about those changes.
It also makes me feel like I am getting my life together which will make me feel better when it becomes time to start a family.
I told this friend when we were talking about debts that I wanted to only have my student loans and car payment when I finally do get married and settle down.
I also told him that I wanted to have the money for my wedding saved. That it wouldn’t be such a big deal spending the money on a wedding if it was already set aside.
Talking about all of this also made me excited. I have a long way to go to get into that great of shape financially and I usually can only save like $25 and pay like $50 on my debts a check, but by small and simple means are great things brought to pass.
I know that even just the small steps I take now will make me feel better about my situation as well as feel better committing to someone in the future.
I am just excited.
