You take on risk until you know you are ready to deal with the consequences. At some point you will fall, you will miss, and you will get hurt unless you are mindful of how to deflect the negative energy.
I’ve heard a lot of people refer to their cats as being “more like dogs than cats” in personality. I heard this so often that I have to think, maybe happy cats aren’t like so much dogs, but are actually more like themselves: cats.
Our next big goal is becoming debt free. We currently have about $19,100 in student loans (It was around $71k when we started, I don’t know what I was thinking at age 17 either) and $108k on the house for a total of about $127k.
Just think how weird would it be to be debt free. How many unique things could we do (options) with little or no major financial obligations. Gets the mind working, huh?
