I hope I have not mislead you, friends. My life is not all bubble gum and rainbows. Not that horrible things are happening right now, but there are a few things on my mind.
For one, this past summer was seriously amazing. Too amazing.
It’s hard for me to talk about money. I feel like it really opens me up to judgement and criticism. Between wedding costs [that I wanted to cover] and overspending on travel…my bank account is not happy with me. But the credit card companies are loving me right now! Ha. I guess it had to happen some time. I’ve got a bit of debt. My goal is to have it paid off by December. And I totally think I can do it! I did pay my car off a year early – holla!
I used to be a lot wiser with my money. But with new hobbies, interests, and lifestyles, come new costs. I am facing the music, my friends! After attending a budgeting seminar with Eric and Kelsey Williams at TXSC, I decided I needed to research this budgeting business and make it work for me. I am currently reading Eric’s book, It’s Your Money: What will you do with it? So wish me luck on this brand new voyage called…restraint. 🙂
*note: I am not “broke.” I have a full time job and a strong support system. Mom, I know you are reading this – don’t freak out. 🙂
Yes, I have issues – there are things I am dealing with. But I am also lucky. Lucky in various, deep, thought provoking ways…but we won’t really go into those now. Here’s the fact: Everything in these photographs was free. [And you can’t think mean things because I am losing my hair! haha] It’s not like I received any of these gifts because of my
reknown web presence.
Pretty much just basic luck:
I’m telling you, life has a funny way of balancing itself out. Although I’d much rather it stop evening the scales by dropping mounds of hair from my head. haha Oh, sense of humor, you come in so handy.
I hope this post wasn’t TMI! I’ve just been wanting to be more open and honest. I hide behind my photographs and the excuse, “I suck at writing” far too much.
What worries you? How do you deal with it?
And by all means, if you have advice for this budget-building recovering-trichotillomaniac, please share!

Life isn't always pretty, thanks for being real!
I know Aunie has trich, do you read her blog? http://www.auniesauce.com/
Hang in there! Stress is the worst–but you'll get through it!
Ramen noodles. 😉
Great post. Thanks for sharing and keeping it real.
You'll do better than you expect! And best of luck with building the finances back up. As an unemployed, I sympathize. 🙂
Honesty is always the way to go. I hear you on the debt, and can empathize on the stress habits. At my worst, stress caused my hair to fall out and I lost a shocking amount of weight. Hopefully you'll get back on track and de-stress soon! ps – love the mocs!
I lost a good portion of my hair in March this year. It was devastating. It was really hard to reconcile who I was if I wasn't the girl with really thick hair. Stay strong and know that this will pass.
