Here it is. My current debt free date.
I sat down and did the math today, and determined my debt free date will be around June 15, 2020 barring any unforeseen circumstances.
I’m a little nervous to put this debt free date out there, but I figured the universe has always had my back before.
I can’t believe I used to think I’d be debt free by July 2021. Then December 2020. Then July. And now June. Moving up this date is the result of hard work, sacrifice, support from family and friends and, I’ll admit, a little luck.
This is only possible so long as nothing in my life changes. If not obvious, my paycheck is a huge factor in all of this and I rely heavily on it. At a time when so many do not have this luxury, I just want you to know that I feel for you and that I see you.
I am also relying on the government stimulus check in order to hit this debt free date, so if I don’t receive that for whatever reason, this date will likely be pushed back.
I have never in my life been so eager to be debt free. It feels so close. I almost worry it’s too good to be true. Seriously, I don’t know when I got to this point, but I am so relieved I am here.
Have you ever hated something so much, and been grateful for it at the same time? That’s how I feel about debt. If you can relate, know this - it is these very things that shape us into who we’re meant to be so long as we accept the challenge and refuse to give up despite the difficulty.
Here’s to grinding out these last few months like I never have before.
