A year and a half ago I surprised my husband for Christmas with a newer version of his dream car, a custom designed brand new 2015 BMW M3. Buying him a new car and paying cash was something that I had set on my vision board after we paid off our 20K in debt. I wanted our family to be more financially sound and debt free. More importantly…I wanted Val to OWN his car. The dealership convinced me that it would improve my credit score even more, after bankruptcy and having 7 years of being 100% financially dependent as a stay at home mom with 0 credit, to take out a loan and paid it off within the year. So that WAS the plan. Well… It took me about 6 months longer since we decided to do a 40K cash remodel on the house this spring. It’s official…I PAID OFF HIS CAR IN FULL!! She’s his!! God is GOOD! And I am grateful!
I remember crying to my mother in 2013 because we desperately needed a new car but $500 a month was just not in the cards. Heck, we couldn’t stretch an extra $200/month for anything. We were not even pay check to pay check. We were in the red. I found a love for a fitness program and shouted it from the roof tops. I lost 40+ lbs after having babies and got in the best shape of my life. I continue to live a healthy lifestyle out loud. I drink a shake, eat great food, workout everyday, use supplements, and train other women on how to do the same thing so that they can feel amazing about themselves from the inside out. I work hard doing a job that I genuinely LOVE doing each day and I get to do it with amazing inspiring people. Best part is… We have created a life for our family that I honestly only ever thought I would dream about. Those dreams are now a reality. Now it’s time to set bigger goals and dream even bigger. So here it goes…our home will be ours, paid in full by Christmas 2017.
Don’t be so afraid to fail that you end up giving up on your dreams. Most people never even start because of a fear of failure. Or they give up just as the magic is about to happen. You are the only one who can make it happen. Believe in YOURSELF and YOUR Vision, even when no one else does. Heck, even when you don’t. Even when the going gets tough, you fail, find something that inspires you, that you feel is worth fighting for. Stay fixated on that and work hard to make it happen.
