Who am I?
I am a 32 year old, soon to be divorced woman who is living with her parents. Sounds sad doesn’t it? Sure, maybe. But it can also sound very smart. I am making sacrifices in the short-term to improve my position in life for the long-term.
I separated from my spouse in June 2016, which was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made. Soon after, in August 2016, I moved 8 hours away and back in with my parents. Thankfully I have a flexible job and was able to stay in the same position, even with the move. I started paying off my consumer debts in September 2016.
I started out with $35,169.18 as my total consumer and medical debt. On top of that, I also have 2 cars in my name with loans and multiple student loans that all need to be repaid. The car loans are around $20,000 total and the student loans are around $120,000 right now. There will be more student loans added to that soon, as I am currently in school right now.
I honestly have no idea how I will be paying all of this debt off, but I am getting aggressive to at least get those consumer and medical debts knocked out in the next couple of years (hopefully sooner)!
I have definitely made some bad decisions in my life, and I am paying the price. But I guarantee you I won’t make those mistakes again!
I am dedicated to overhauling my life and making it the best life I can!
