Personal Finance Mountain

There's a bit of freedom knowing no one will probably read this. I have been away for quite a bit. Anyone that read before, thanks for coming back and stumbling across some more ramblings.

Have taken the last few weeks to try and really focus on one thing at a time. Now being back to getting all of my finances in order I noticed something odd...

During the two months off from the blog I didn't fall off the horse. Sure I could have probably done better, but no real catastrophe! It seems the systems I had in place worked. I never used a credit card, minimal use of debit card, and used cash for all of my cash plan items.

My Net Worth Improved about$3500 and I was able not to dip into the Emergency Fund even though we had some car repairs to pay for. I am sure that their are some ninja bills out there, but I feel like even if they come up I'll be prepared.

So the mountain...ah the over-thought metaphor of the night...Personal Finance and reaching your goals really is similar to climbing a mountain. Often you cannot see the top, you'll get discouraged, but if you work your system, even if you fall...it is just to the base camp not all the way down!

Enough about me! How have your personal finance goals been going? We are at the 6-month mark for the year, days getting shorter again. Are you closer or farther away from hitting the next base camp?

All the best in your Journey!
