30 Days of Truth – Something You Hope To Do In Your Life

I would love to be able to sit back and give you something deep and profound for today’s truth, but I don’t have anything.

What I would love to do, more than anything else, is get to the point where I’m no longer living paycheck to paycheck. I know that’s selfish and shallow, but that’s really high on my list.

My dad worked his tail off to become successful during the 80s, and he furthered his knowledge to continue being successful throughout the 90s and 00s. He doesn’t have to work, but he chooses to. He’s not a millionaire by any means, but he’s never looking over his shoulder wondering where his next meal is going to come from.

I want that.

I don’t need to be a millionaire. I don’t even need to be a thousandaire. I’d just like to be able to come home and take Sunshine out on a date without planning my finances in advance. I’d like to be able to buy a game or a movie for the kids on a day outside of Christmas or their birthday. I’d like to be able to buy clothes at places other than the local second-hand store.

I’d like to think that I won’t be living like this forever, but I turn 40 this year and it’s so difficult to know where life is going to take me over the second half of my life.

Hopefully, with knowledge and experience on my side, this will happen in my lifetime.

  1. Doesn’t sound selfish at all, for the record. Most of the things you mentioned wanting to be able to do were for other people more than for yourself. I’m confident that if you keep this as a goal in your mind and actively work toward it, you’ll get there. πŸ™‚

  2. This is definitely NOT selfish and i think it’s a universe wish and goal we all have. I am finally starting to feel at a point where I don’t feel as strapped as in the past, and it does make a huge difference to be able to do for others like you want to (as Sunshine points out, many of the things you want to do are for others…selfLESS if you ask me!). You will get there. You are on the right track!

  3. I agree. Not selfish! I think you understand that money doesn’t buy happiness but it definitely helps with peace of mind. You’re on your way!

  4. You know it’s crazy, I was actually browsing the web because I’m dealing with some personal things and wanted to find some kind of self forgiveness pic. I wanted the pic to be it, the one! Then I saw what looked like a Ritz cracker saying ” 30 days of truth. ” and it was like that’s it. If I truly forgive myself could I do 30 days of truth, not even with just other’s, but with myself? Thank you for the picture. It’s funny your post from March 2012 still inspires 3yrs later. Amazing!
