We are 10 months old. Our debt free journey started one day when I was sitting in the library reading a travel magazine, daydreaming about places I want to visit. I then started to plan trips, quickly, and realized these wouldn’t ever be our reality if things didn’t change.
That was my wake-up call. My heart started to race, my brain started to ping around with dread, worry, fear, and nervousness as well as this amazing feeling that we could actually do this. I didn’t really think logically about the how…I was pumped, to say the least. Michael had gotten the kids off to bed and was sitting on the couch working when I came in the door, took off my coat, and started talking at him so very fast about everything I had been thinking about.
A few days later, A Matter of Life or Debt was born.
Perhaps you are there too. Whatever your motivating factor (children, travel, financial security) there are people like us who are in the process of crushing their debt. There are a number of people who have gone before and have been successful– these people are amazing. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to read their stories. One day, we will be that kind of story.
In the meantime, we are hoping you’ll stick around for the ride. Cheer us on. At the least, celebrate with us in May– we will be having some grand shenanigans.
