I think back often to the beginning of our journey into debt. Well not the very beginning but the beginning when things were spiraling out of control. Looking back I was a selfish, spoiled brat and if I wanted something I wanted it now. Maybe it was a lack of maturity for me. I never knew how to focus on finding happiness in the small blessings in life. I think that has been the most meaningful lesson that God has used our fight to get out debt to teach me. There are so many bleesings in my life but I have to open my eyes and keep from having my vision clouded by all my wants so I can see all that I already have.
If you asked those closest to me if they thought I was a ungrateful brat, they would all say No even my hubby who has always worked so hard to provide for all my wants. I can see it now and I’m still not always happy with our situation but I can look for the blessings in it and use them to grow and to find peace in the journey.
