2007 Goal--amended again

Well, we've decided to tackle another bill first, and save the Honda for next year.

Something NBA and I talked about today was how we need to break the cycle of doing really well, then bingeing. I think it's because in the past we have always had to cut back and not spend because we literally didn't have any money, so we saw it as depriving ourselves of what we wanted. THEN, when we got money again, we went crazy, causing the problem to rear its ugly head again.

This time, for me at least, feels different. I am doing it because I want to live more in line with my values, I want to show my gratitude for all that I have been given.

I don't feel deprived; I feel empowered. I feel like I am taking charge of my life.
