I finally did something that I have not dared to do for a long time. It was way past over due! This morning I decided to finally do it. I CUT UP MY CREDIT CARDS!!! Only one of them actually have a balance on it, but I decided to cut them all up and get them out of my life. When I set out six months ago on this journey of becoming Thirty, Flirty and Thriving, my main goal was to get out of debt and to start living within my means. It took me six months, but I am finally ready to move forward. I sat down with a good friend of mine a couple of months ago and she helped me to really study my finances and create a budget that I could live in.

“Many people think a budget robs them of their freedom. On the contrary, successful people have learned that a budget makes real economic freedom possible.” -N. Eldon Tanner

It was super intimidating at first to follow a budget, but now I am getting the hang out if and I am ready to bite this debt in the butt!!!

Create a budget: check!

Cut up my credit cards: check!

Get out of debt: in process.

I have exactly six months until I turn Thirty years old. The past six months have been AWESOME and I have had so much fun working towards my goals. Now I am going to turn up the volume and I AM REALLY GOING TO LIVE!!! There is so much to do and so much LIFE TO LIFE! I am so excited!

My theme for the next six months: LIVE IN THE DISCOMFORT ZONE.

It's time to get out of my bubble. Watch out world!!! Here I come!
