If you’re new here, I post an update every couple of months that details how we’re doing on our debt payoff and other goals. I also include some highlights of the months and what I’ve been reading and watching…because life is about more than just reaching goals. As a Type A person (with debt), I easily get caught up in trying to be productive all the time. It’s important to relax once in a while 🙂
January and February have been an eventful couple of months. I paid off another student loan (yay!), our cat was diagnosed with kidney disease and had to be put down 🙁 , and I turned 28.
I recently read Shonda Rhimes’ (the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal) bestselling book Year of Yes and it was fantastic. In the book, Shonda describes how saying “yes” changed her life – and how it can change yours too.
Despite being a wealthy, powerful woman, Shonda is an introvert and often said “no” to attending events that made her uncomfortable. During her “year of yes” she made a vow to start saying “yes” to everything that scares her.

Winter has arrived here in Minnesota…I spent 20 minutes digging my car out of the snow this morning and it’s going to be -4 for the high one day next week! Brrr!

When things are going well, it’s easy to feel gratitude. But when things are kind of lousy, it’s a lot more difficult to feel thankful. I’m writing this post not just because of Thanksgiving, but because I need to make more of an effort to be grateful.
There are many negative stereotypes about millennials. We’re often classified as lazy, entitled, and immature. I don’t agree with these stereotypes. Of course, there are a few millennials out there who fit these stereotypes, but there are more who don’t.
Many millennials are working their asses off, paying off debt, starting their own businesses, and building wealth. Here are 10 inspiring career and lifestyle blogs for millennial women. These incredible ladies are killing it!
I love blogging. It’s interesting, rewarding, and often opens my mind to new and different perspectives that I hadn’t considered in the past. I also enjoy feeling like I’m making a difference in other millennials’ lives. Reading personal finance blogs inspired me to pay off my massive debt as quickly as possible and to start making better financial choices. I hope to inspire others to make smarter choices too.
