I scheduled Freak Day in because I was melting down and a close friend of mine said to give it 4 more days before I completely freak out. So, being that I'm the compulsive list maker, number cruncher type, I scheduled it on my calendar. It did help to put off my melt down so I could still remain a functioning entity. Brains tend to shut down when they are in panic mode.
My financial situation has been taking a downward slide for quite some time. I'm a wiz at living off of next to nothing and being creative to make ends meet but being unable to work for this length of time has taken it's toll. I told another long time friend of mine that my ship was sinking. She said, it's this ship that is sinking, not the better one around the corner.
I'm a firm believer that there is a solution to every problem, we just may not have found the right answer yet. I know it's hard to say that knowing I may not have a place to live in a few weeks, but I still know it's true. Keeping my sanity those few days longer has helped me be able to keep digging and exploring possibilities. I think things are looking up.
I will make it happen.
And I accept Lynne's (Autonomous Artisans) challenge for No Spend January! My next post is going to be about how I'm managing to do that. Bring it on!
