Am stressed but thankful

I have been stressed a lot about my finances. How am I going to pay this bill, gas prices are too high, student loan payments, blah blah blah. Then it hit me, I am spending way too much time worrying. All this will do is give me a damn migraine or an ulcer. I did not get in debt overnight, and as much as I would like to waive a magic wand and have it all disappear that is not possible. So I have to just deal with it and be thankful.

Thankful that....
I am alive and healthy.
I have family (breathe girl, breathe) and good friends.
I have a roof over my head and food to eat.
I have a job with benefits.
I am free to express my opinions.

I love my life and am thankful for it. I just do not like my debt.

Welcome to personal finance blogging! I feel you real deep right now because I have been stressing over my own debt repayment (which has been stalled by my recent move), but I realized that I have a plan and I will pay it off by my 30th birthday (which is just next year, so I have to get cracking!).

You have a lot to be thankful for. Your health and well-being are more important.

We all have to get busy and rid of this debt, sooner rather than later.

Do you have a payoff deadline?

Debt Hater...thanks, having a plan is a great step toward getting there.

Single ma thanks girl. Am trying to be credit card free and pay off my car half way by end of 2007 the latest.
