The Truth and Nothing But The Truth - Day 2

For the next 30 days, I am going to write the complete and utter truth about myself. Here is day 2

If you missed previous days, go here.

Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.

This one is easy for me. I love that I am able to have the life that I have. I have a great apartment, a car, a great paying job and I can afford to live as I want to live. I love that I can provide this kind of life for me and Son. I am very proud of this fact.

While married, there was 2 incomes and we spent to the max. Once divorced, I worked HARD to reduce my debt, get my credit back and get my budget under control. I now have a great home for me and Son, a new car, and I have a little savings account. I also was able to take us to Disney last year. I remember standing At Cinderella’s Castle the first day, crying because we were THERE and everything was paid for and I did it all on my own.

I decided long ago that I would not live the way I did when married. I would always have a savings account and I would have “play” in my budget to be able to go out to dinner or be able to do something fun with Jakes and not have to worry about where the money would come from.


  1. Good for you! You should be very proud of yourself!

  2. BRAVO!
    Truly you can say this...but NOT MANY people can! Well done.

  3. Wow...that is A LOT to be proud of! There's no sense beating yourself up about anything when you've accomplished all of that. Just keep this post at the ready next time you're feeling down...

  4. That is definately something to love about yourself! Loved this post. You have given me inspiration.

  5. we got married dumb with lots of debt and i made a boat load of money but have no clue where it all went...getting debt free and living with margin changed our lives trememndously..

  6. I remember those days! It does get better!

  7. Bravo! That's why I love you!!
    Great post!The last paragraph said it all! :))

    Big hugs,
    B xoxo

  8. That is a huge accomplishment and no wonder you are proud! You should be!

  9. It's a great feeling, isn't it? Keep up the good work!

  10. This is a major, huge accomplishment. Good for you for not only working so hard and doing so well, but also for the amazing example you're providing for your son. Wow. And this meme idea is terrific.

  11. I've been reading lots of people's 30 Days excersise. I am doing it myself.

    This is the first Thing That I Love About Myself that I personally covet for me.

    I want to develop this trait in me. I want to better - no, good - at budgets and money management.

    This post has inspired me to make some hard, but much needed changes. thank you.
