Guess who’s back! Finally, I’ve come out of my writing hiatus, with a new perspective and new goals. Thinking why am I trying to keep up with the Joneses?? I’m doing it my way! With this new fresh start I decided to pay off my debt starting with my car and boy does it feel great! I am currently paying off my final credit card and plan on living below my means. If I can’t cover the cost within 30 days of the purchase I will not charge it.
I am very passionate about fashion, but I will not go into debt trying to make sure I have the latest bag or piece of clothing anymore! Not saying I won’t purchase it just trying to avoid impulse purchases. I truly believe fashion is a circle, therefore I try to make purchases that are timeless pieces, such as this beautiful skirt from Zara. I recently had a birthday on November 11th in which I turned 45 years old. It was a wake-up call for me, as I am 5 years away from being 50 years old. Therefore I have started my 5-year plan. Some new changes I’ve incorporated are narrowing down my planner collection to just my Bullet journal, in which I maintain my budget and Todo list which keeps me on track. Another change is sticking to a workout routine 4-5 days a week. I started this routine in August of this year, after seeing a picture of the weight gain in my face. Lol, I must admit I didn’t like what was staring back at me! My workouts are now a habit in which I love. They relieve stress and anxiety which I face day to day as a mother, employee, and aspiring entrepreneur.
My ultimate goals are to save for a home and plan my future retirement. Please follow my blog and subscribe to my youtube channel, Being Meka J to follow my journey. I am now an open book and will be sharing the ups and downs of this path. Thank you for stopping by…God Bless!
