Hello! Hope your weekend is everything you need it to be!
I spent the day on the golf course with my kid yesterday, it’s a big chunk of time and well worth it. She did good, not great, but good. Her “numbers” are not where she wants them to be, but she is getting there, in “time” she will be there.
Life is a numbers game. I just realized how much I rely on numbers every.single.day. Is it just me?
Here’s the latest game I’m playing. Next month is the three year mark in this five year Chapter 13. This Sixty Payments has been going on for thirty six months!
In two years, I will hopefully be discharged – In two years after that the Bankruptcy will be off my credit report – In two years after that I can retire and get the hell out of here and move to the sticks and start living a life I want to live.
At age 62, if health permits I might be able to finally be happy. Content. I don’t think we can ever by truly happy for very long periods of time, but we can be content with our lives and then sad and happy given whatever crap we as humans have to deal with and believe me, there is so much crap that is just waiting to be had!
The trick to playing the numbers game is to try to stay sane. You can have too many numbers games going on in your head at one time and that’s overload. I find myself getting caught up in numbers games for my kid as well. For instance, her golf scores, the money she needs, the dates she will drive, go to college, etc. Its all in the numbers.
I use numbers as stepping stones, mile posts to get to my goals, but sometimes it’s a good idea for me to step back and just live.
That for me is easier said than done.
I can’t wait to be 62 and one friend asked me if I really meant it because it seems like I was wishing my life away.
Yes! I REALLY mean it. If I could wake up tomorrow and be 62 I would in a heart beat! That my friends is my magical number and that is why I am so obsessed with numbers!
Is it just me? What are your numbers games?
Have a wonderful rest of your 24 hours!
