My Mind is made Up

Well its been awhile, but I’ve decided to be responsible for writing only once a week. I have a fairly slow paced lifestyle, with minimum drama. Been working since I was eleven years old, always doing what I enjoy the most---being creative. As one gets older, they begin to look back, more than they look forward, ever wonder why? I think its because we finally notice that there is an ending to life, and we really don’t want to see it. I’ve spent the last ten years getting out of credit card debt, it was my whole focus, almost every dollar earned went toward my debt. Now when the final payment was made, mailed off to the debt management company---they stole it!!! I had to hustle all over again to earn a second final payment, plus late fee’s and interest charges. But that is all behind me---looking back again. I’m free, and it feels good.

Now without the weight of debt servitude, I really didn’t know what to do with my earning power. Over the past ten years I, and my family have learned to live without a lot of excesses---the stuff the marketing world had convinced me we could not live without. We now survive with the best of nothing, and we are loving it. As I said my life is quiet and peaceful.

"Trust in the Lord, with all thine heart and lean not to thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path."
