    Unless I get kidnapped - I made it!!!!!

    Wed Apr 10, 2019 8:25 am

    Unless I get kidnapped in the next 16 hours, have a gun put to my head and forced to play the pokies or face death, I ***** made it!!!

    Currently day 99 and hit the big 100 at midnight!
    100 days seemed like an eternity when I started back at day 1.

    For those in the early days keep pushing people, life actually does get better.
    It's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel early on, but the longer you go the better it gets.
    Debts start going down and savings start going up.
    Life starts to look beautiful again, how it should.
    More than the financial, your mental health and well being improve 10 fold without all the stress and depression!
    Don't get me wrong I still have a ways to go dealing with and repairing the damage I have done to my self esteem, confidence and just the way that I view myself after bearing the shame and guilt of my actions, but I know I'm well on my way!!

    Keep pushing people X
