This is a hard life lesson for me - I think this one stems back to childhood and just not feeling worthy enough.  You know, if I'm not worthy than who an I to ask for anything or receive it for that matter.  Watch your words adults!

A year of challenges – snail mail

I want to report on last month's challenge of spending less.  January and February were overall good months for me spending wise.  I kept track of every dollar spent.  January was the better (cheaper) month but only because I bought less groceries.

Valentine's Day can be hard.  We have so many expectations.  Social media and the rest of the planet doesn't help with advertising roses, cards and taking your sweet heart out to dinner.  What if you currently don't have a sweet heart?

A year of challenges – spending less

I decided to shake things up a bit in 2019.  Not make year-long resolutions but break the year down into goals or challenges. Last month was self-care.  Just slow down.
