Now this is an issue...

I am not quite sure why, but I find myself moving into a pattern whenever I am slightly broke and am awaiting a paycheck. I window-shop online. Not only that, I plan out all the things I might have denied myself during the period of broke-ness. It's like a countdown to the possibility of impulse-buying, sort of. For one, I seriously need a pedicure. Even more than that, my eyebrows are starting to look like caterpillars. I start thinking of all the things I can do with the money after I pay my bills. (Hey, at least I figure in bill paying to the equation.) However, it's getting to be such a habit that I'm starting to wonder if it's not a little unhealthy. For what am I trying to compensate? I guess I'm just trying to figure it out before it goes too far and I don't even have bill money anymore.


But if this is the biggest one of my problems, I should just consider myself lucky!

Hey like you said consider yourself lucky, things could be worse!! People have to go through some struggles, whether it be financial, love or any other personal reasons. Thats what eventually makes or breaks the person. I could have easily said forget everything and live at home until mom kicks me out but I stuck with it and so far here I am. I have a job, money saved up, bills paid off, going to school and have a wonderful fiance back home waiting for me. Trust me it didn't come overnight!! Somethings you may have to put aside and focus on other things but those are the sacrifices one has to make. I still have to make sacrifices to get where I want to be. Don't worry just live. Your being responsible by taking care of your priorities and sooner or later you'll be rewarded.
