Autumn is finally here and that means it’s time to pull out your scarves, play in color-changing leaves, and bust out those boots you have been missing all summer.

I love blogging. I enjoy inspiring others to make smarter financial choices and it’s amazing that I can make a little side income through this blog. This money goes straight toward the debt snowball on my student loans.

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.

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.
