We’re already in October. Where did 2018 go?! I’m already getting emails about filing your taxes. Open enrollment is the around the corner.
Hmmm…Venus in retrograde… I feel a massive push to reassess my finances.
- I wanna make sure I stay completely debt free for the rest of the year (no credit card debt, loans of any kind).
- Eliminate any unnecessary spending (do you really need cable, Netflix and Hulu?).
- Check to make sure I’m getting the best pricing for current plans and policies I have now (car insurance, renters insurance, cell phone plan etc.)
Why? I’m ready for a new bucket list. Well, it needs an adjustment. I was supposed to be packing up and leaving for Southern California. Long story short, the stars were not aligned for me to go in that direction. Was I a little bitter about it? Yes, a lot actually. You know how when nothing seems to be going right you’re like WTF? Then you sit around saying whhhhhyyyy? Do a lot of this 😭 You can’t seem to find reasons to justify it. Why you’ve worked so hard towards something and it fails. Then finally after weeks or months of self-pity, the answers as to why presents itself. WOW. The universe was really looking out me. Thank you.
Has that happened to you?
Currently, I’m in limbo as far as where I’ll be living. The same city, just not sure if I want to stay where I’m at now. The price doesn’t justify the living space/environment. Renting, in general, is ridiculously expensive right now. On top of that, no one wants to rent to my 90 lbs child.
Lame. We shall see where I end up by the end of this year.
Adjustments to my bucket list…
Pushing up the need to buy another house. I’ve lived in apartments for most of my life. Finally bought when I turned 30 (btw that was on my bucket list from 2008, patting myself on the back again, lol). Then I decided a house was too much for me. Sold 4 years later with plans to relocate to southern California in a couple of years (my son was still in high school). I went back to renting. I think it’s been 2 years…or has it been 3? Hmmm, I’ve decided apartment living is no longer for me 🤦 There are some perks, yes. But I’m awfully tired of all the random people/neighbors you have to deal with. And the walls are just too thin. My patio faces my neighbors. Like why would I want to stare at them?? I’d like more space and privacy. Granted if I bought a house thinking it seems quiet based on my random drivebys…doesn’t mean it’s really that way. Imagine buying a house next to a neighbor that is…for lack of a better word…”ghetto.” Loud, inconsiderate and has random people in and out all through the night. Ugggh that would suck. Still, you’d have a lot more freedom and I sure do miss that.
Another add is, I’m not planning to go to any concerts this coming year. 🙊 Going to take a year off and do some different things. I’m not much of a “traveler.” I don’t have a bunch of countries I want to visit. That’s not my thing. Backpacking in Asia? No thanks. Luxury vacations are more for me. Clean and no bugs. If anything I want to see more beautiful beaches. I already have a couple of trips on my list for 2019 😎
Oh, and I got a karmic destiny reading done. SUPER COOL. I talked about it on my podcast ➡️ check it out 😁 I went on a little rant and threw the F* word out a few times 😑 opps All these emotions! It was my first podcast and duh, I was nervous 😊 One of the biggest goals on my bucket list is to focus on my karmic destiny. 1000%. There is no longer an ounce of doubt. It gave me the boost I needed for sure. I noticed I’ve been feeling a little more sure of myself lately. Even before the reading. But still “iffy.” After that reading, I no longer have any more questions.
I think this year is coming to a close quite nicely. I’ve even reconnected with family in a way I thought would never happen. Feeling pretty grateful right now. I also started celebrating my little wins and stopped forcing myself to work when I just need a day to zen. I’m really starting to enjoy my days now more than ever. Not just when I have plans…like really just enjoying my day-to-day life. (my anxiety levels have gone waaay down as well 🙏)
So…are you feeling any – let’s wrap up this 2018 with a bang vibe at all?
