Contentment Challenge – I am finally doing it.

I am finally doing this. I have been half way doing it with no improvement for the past couple of months. Of course I never actually considered doing it until it was on paper and in my blog- which i have been procrastinating in doing.
I am doing it for 4 months so September , October, November and December.
During this time  hope to learn to get a better handle on my finances and pay down my credit card debt and work on paying off my student loans.

The Guidelines:
• Until  September 10th, your homework is the following: prepare your heart, organize your closet, and make any necessary purchases that you might need during these months. (This is not a last minute shopping spree! This is one final trip to the store for items you will need.) For me this also includes looking closely at my subscriptions and getting it down. Right now I am in a lot, including- FabFitFun Box, Half Blood Prints Monthly, The Community (with Maxie McCoy) , Influencenet , and She Reads Truth AutoShip.
• Choose 1-3 inspiring books to read during this time. I am choosing Looking forLovely by Annie Downs, Loving my Actual Life by Alexandra Kuykendall, And Wild and Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan. These books do not include other Book Clubs I am in or may join. I am thinking about completing the In The wait Study during this season also.
• Gifts are okay! If someone gives you a new dress or piece of decor during that time, receive it graciously! If you need to buy someone else a gift, by all means, do so. The point is not to be rude, but to learn more of ourselves and the Lord. It’s not the time to be legalistic.
• Necessities are okay! Please buy groceries. If you drop and break your phone, please go get a new one! If you lose your glasses, buy a new pair. Just don’t start justifying new purchases for items that you already have. (“I really NEED this bathing suit, even though there are 8 in my closet already.”)

• You must actively pursue something – anything – that replaces your tendency to buy stuff. Begin thinking about something you love or a hobby you’ve always wanted to do, and make preparations to actually do it. I am torn between writing, drawing / coloring, exercising and working on learning Funnel Hacking , Microsoft and how to type better during this time. 

Week In Review

Whew. Its been a week. I feel like I always say that though. The past couple of weeks have been a learning experience about what works and what doesn’t. I guess that is part of being a part of new business.

The good news is that through all of this I am learning new skills.

I have just started my grad school search and process. So YAY.

I’ve been given more opportunities to use my skills at my internship so another YAY.

I am just tired and still lacking a routine which is annoying me. I like routines. I like knowing what is going on. It must be the type A in me. I guess if I really want to get my stuff done I just need to organize my time better and just do it.

I was thinking of going to CPAC once I found the great deal from YAL, but then airfare is killing me. So I think that’s a no go for this year. Mostly because I am broke.

Another thing that I have found: when the days aren’t looking that good and I do my SheReadsTruth devotion I feel much better. It’s a nice reminder that we are not in control and that HE has a plan for us. This is not to say we shouldn’t work with what we have and the opportunities we have been given.

 

That’s it for now.

Hopefully next week I can post some more. Or maybe schedule some posts this weekend. Now time to clean and do some research.

A Fresh Start

Now that I finally finished the SheReadsTruth A Fresh Start Bible study I feel more calm. Calm because I know that no matter what I do or how much I fall down from what is right, He will pick me up and give me another chance. No matter what.

And lets just say that giving others the same is something that I need to work on. I am one to hold a grudge or at least get mad and stay mad for longer than most of my family. He wants it all and will take you where you are and will use you.

Right now I am in a period of transition. I know I will not live at home and will eventually get to where I belong but right now is a fresh start a fresh start with my family and making friends and I need to embrace it.

 

That’s all for now. Cannot wait to start John 1-3 study.

This entire study reminded me of a song which I am forgetting the name of…..
