As of today, I have been living alone for almost 3 months. Within this time, I contemplated what life would've been like living with a roommate on more than a handful of occasions. These thoughts made me begin to second guess my decision to live on my own and in complete transparency, most of this boils down to finances. However, today I stumbled upon the below video by Jillian Michaels for Everyday Health on "Staying Motivated While Making Changes." She advises to make a why list. She goes on to say, "If you have a why to live for, you can tolerate any how." I won't spoil the clip for you (it's only 1:47), but it basically reminded me of my reasons for deciding to make this change.
I find comfort in believing that the financial pressure I'm under won't last forever, it's just going to take some adjusting to this new life and learning to make better financial decisions.
