I recently switched dental insurance companies and had to see a new dentist. The initial intake appointment was overwhelming. I talked to the dentist for nearly an hour, filled out endless paperwork, watched a video (shown on the TV that was on the ceiling), and was bombarded with all kinds of information about dental health.
For all of you who are new to FM, I post an update every couple of months that shows how we’re doing on our debt snowball and other goals. A couple years ago, I shared a post called What to Do When You’re Feeling Stuck.

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! Hopefully most of you readers are enjoying somewhat less chilly weather. How are you doing on your financial goals so far this season? Share in the comments!
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.
