It’s still a little early to be counting my chickens, but I think that something awesome might have happened yesterday. Without going into too much detail, it looks I’ll be receiving some money that I didn’t expect. It’s money that I’ll eventually have to pay back at a very small amount of interest, but it’s enough money that I will be able to get myself out of CC debt now, instead of in May. If this all works out, it will be a game changer. No longer will I be bent under the imaginary weight of these cards. I can burn them all, and then start saving for the future. More importantly, I’ll be able to afford to take a lower paying job if it becomes a necessity, or if something good opens up that I’m perfect for. I have been so unhappy for so long in my current position, but bound by the fact that I was an inch away from starving, and in no position to take any less money. Granted, I am worth more than I’m making now, but at least I know I have options, I am free to live again without 19% interest.
I’m going out for a run to celebrate.
