Dust off My Finances

14 Apr

The road is long and dusty. I’ve traveled it many times. I should know where the potholes and bumps in the road are by now, but no, I continue to slam into the same spots.  I have flats at the same time and in the same place.   The windows are down on my car and my hand dangles out the window, as I try to capture some of the emotions and freedom of my youth – before I had car loans and student loans.  Now, I’m traveling on this road, hoping I can put both hands on the wheel and can navigate through this treacherous course.  The dust is climbing up, until I can’t see what’s ahead of me.  I know where I’m going, and I know about how long it’s going to take me to get there.  I just don’t seem to totally understand HOW I should approach the road.  I could drive slowly and carefully, that way I can somewhat predict what lies ahead.  Or, I could drive at breakneck speed with little regard to the comfortable life I’ve created.  I may hit more bumps in the road; I may end up on the side of the road with a busted radiator. But if everything goes just right, I could get to the end of the road much more quickly than I originally thought. 

I am considering how I can quickly get out of debt. I could get a second job, but I feel that I have some work to do internally before I can take on a second job.  Or, I could ignore the work that is required of me and suck it up for a couple of years. 

Which approach is best?
