If You Read Anything Today, Read This Post by Another Blogger


I am the first to admit that I am not the best writer in the world. I have such a difficult time writing things that it can take me many hours to write a single post. Sometimes I read something that another blogger wrote and it is something that I have tried to write before, but it was deleted because I just couldn’t get it out. Here’s one of those instances.

So, if you read anything today read this post.

One thing that I will add is that your debt isn’t you either. Don’t let your debt define who you are. Someone who has $30,000 in credit card debt is not a worse person than someone who has $1,000 in credit card debt. Just remember that.

Anyways, go read Jim’s post. It’s a good one.

    Thanks for the compliment and the link, I’m glad you enjoyed it and found value in it. Writing does get easier and better with time, I can assure you of that :). It also is one of the few things in this world that others won’t make fun of you if you’re bad at it, like public speaking, because no one does it well. 🙂

    It’s a great post, no doubt.

    Of course, if you have kids, you’re constantly reminded of what life is really all about. Simple things like hearing my baby girl’s laughter help to keep it all in perspective. Yep.

So, what do you think ?
