Not Even a Summer

Well, I’ve been blogging for close to a year now. I started with pizazz and enthusiasm. I had good traction and made it for a while on great discipline. I paid off a loan and have made great strides on my car loan.

BUT,
I’ve lost some motivation and enthusiasm lately. My envelope system is a hot mess. I have not been as diligent about saving. I want to get back in the saddle! I didn’t even make it one summer with financial success. But I did make it through two seasons with measurable success, and that’s progress!

The change in my accountability partner has been difficult for me. I haven’t handled the loss of the close accountability well. I knew when my FAP left for another job that I would be challenged to continue on my path. I have been and haven’t met the challenge. I have a new FAP and need to be more diligent in communicating with her. I also need to start recording my daily spending better. I used to keep a daily spending log but I have put that habit down! It’s time to pick it back up!

My journey to find financial peace and success will be arduous. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! But my fleshly nature does get in the way.
“And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.” (Romans 7:18-20 NLT)

I need to truly continue to turn this over to God. I cannot do this on my own. I need to lean on my support group to help me. I need to lean on my FAP. I need to live one day at a time. I can celebrate the victories and learn from the mistakes.

So, I’ve really shared my failures with you. How do you evaluate your failures? How do you pick yourself up again?
