Finally Debt Free
It's more than just a financial victory, though I will be saving quite a bit of money by paying it off about 4 years ahead of schedule, but it's a major symbolic victory as well.
The debt was the remaining amount left from educational loans, money still owed from the college where I had my nervous breakdown. It's the closing of a chapter in life, a new start, and a way of saying that I'm starting to take back control again. It's rather appropriate that it happened just after New Year's day, a new year, a new beginning This year will be much different than the last.
Life will be much better, and I'll truly be able to start over again. The planning is there, now I just need the patience. I'm thankful to everyone who has been reading this blog, listening to my opinions, and to my story. I'm not where I should be in life yet, but I'm getting there, and writing this blog has helped a lot in my recovery, helping to put my past behind me.
Sharing my story has allowed me to confront my past, and move on, within a year or so, I'll be moving into a new chapter in life that has it's own challenges, I'll keep everyone updated even then, letting you know how I am doing, and about the new struggles.
