Accentuating the Positive

It’s very early in the day, and early in the year, but there are some positives. I turn 25 this year. That’s not neccessarily a positive; it’s just a fact. However, things change when you’re 25. One change I’ve already noticed is….my car insurance is dropping for $40! Whoo hoo! Hip Hip Hooray for growing up, I guess. That, combined with my raise, will definitely help me reach the financial goals that I have for the year.

I have gotten off to a better start than I thought that I would. I’m usually a slow starter, if I can ever get myself to start. I find all sorts of reasons to put off starting, or to slow down, especially if it involves something that I should be doing. Sometimes I want the results but can’t convince myself to do the work it takes to get there. There are still a few areas that fall into that category, but I have quite a few successes.

I have been working out at least three times a week, which was part of my health/fitness goal. Eat more vegetables and healthier foods, and I have increased my water intake. I have written here everyday, even though one post didn’t get finished until slightly after midnight. I’m finding ways and means to have more accessible funds. I worked well enough to earn a raise,  paid my car payments on time enough to get rid of the buy here, pay here and have the loan taken over by a legitimate, report to the credit bureaus company, and having the SunPass reduces my toll payments by 10%. 

There are still many areas to be worked on, but I am off to a good start.

You’ve got to…”accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, hold on to the affirmative, don’t mess with mister in-between!” –Betty Jean Wilkins, my 7th & 8th grade French teacher and Theatrical Musical Troupe Leader.  That’s easier said than done, but I do the best I can with trying to live up to it. 

Don’t worry, the next few entries will be more interesting.

  1. Looking on the bright side is the best way to go through life! Congrats on your successes and sticking to your goals. (Now, if only I could make my New Years resolutions last more than a couple of weeks!)
