And I’ve never felt more free.
About a month ago, my car got repossessed. It took a lot of work and stress to get it back. I was all set, with a new part time job alongside my full time job to get things back on track. I made plans payment arrangements, budgets. I had entire workbooks filled with my future.
Then, this past Tuesday, I was involved in a car accident. All parties involved made it out alive and in one piece, but somehow the brand new car I haven’t even owned for a year yet was totaled.
All wasn’t lost, but it’s gonna take a bit of waiting before I get off this new detour.
Needless to say, life is different for the moment.
Still, I feel like things are still on the up and up. I’m working my way toward financial freedom (ask me how), I can see the horizon, and it’s super bright. I realized I’ve worked this hard all this time just to get more stuff, when all I really want is the freedom to enjoy the “stuff.”
Freedom to enjoy my life.
Freedom to enjoy my family.
I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make breakfast. I made eggs and toast for my son, and was about to make the same for myself when I remembered I had some BBQ chicken in the fridge from the other day. I decided to make that with my eggs, and in feeling so free I wondered what was stopping me from having a nice glass of red with my breakfast.
Not a damn thing.
So I squirted my eggs with some sriacha (I might be obsessed), shredded some chicken beside it, poured me a glass, and enjoyed the beginning of my new life.
A life of freedom.
