I hope everybody is doing well this week. Last week I posted my first blog carnival and my first guest post. The last few weeks have been interesting. I had a death in my family and my part time income halted.
Because of those situations I have decided to put my debt update on hold until January. By then I will be able to start back adding extra payments on my debt. I also have two job opportunities that I am debating on as well as the temporary position that I am working now.
A lot of people don’t know this but I quit my full time job to do my cross country trip. I have no regrets doing it either. I took a hell of a risk. In my opinion it was worth it. Having the chance to see the country coast to coast was amazing. People all over are very nice and helpful. I honestly haven’t been the same since. My priorities have changed. I want to do more and help more people. I also believe now more than ever that you can do anything if you put your mind to it.
I also worked at a dead end job. The office was full of complainers. I didn’t want to be become one myself. I saved enough money to live off of for a few months and quit. The past few months have been very different. I realize now that you can survive without a 9-5 job and still enjoy life. It just takes some budgeting and discipline.
I also look at the time that I wasn’t working full time as a test run. Eventually I plan to work on The Butler Journal full time meaning that I could work at home, at Starbucks or even overseas. I am proud to know that I could focus and actually do work at home.
Why am I getting another full time job then?
I have goals, very big goals. Paying off my debt is also very important to me. I still want to show people that they can pay debt off and still enjoy life as well. I also need to build my emergency account back up so that when I leave the job again it’s permanent.
What’s the biggest risk that you’ve ever taken? Did it go good or bad? Is there anything that you would change?
