“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
~ Albert Einstein ~
Here it is Wednesday.. somehow the days are flying by even though I’m not working. I have been however working on trying to get my finances in order. Been on the phone trying to be proactive and not let my bills get out of control like I know they will at some point due to lack of income that will be coming in. I will be getting short term disability but it will only amount to about 1/2 of what I would normally make so.. while I was just barely making ends meet with overtime before all this cancer shite, I will be in dire straights with this adjusted income. Granted I’m grateful that at least I have the disability to count on but it just will not be enough. So, I’ve been trying to call all of my creditors to explain the situation and see if there is anything they can do to help me out.. defer payments, discounts etc. Problem is because I haven’t received my first check yet and therefore have no idea exactly how much I will be getting.. they can’t set anything up till I know this. Yet by the time I get my first check I will have started to get behind in my bills.. sounds confusing?? It is.. and me trying to stay ahead and try to plan it out isn’t working. I was able to work out a few things which is good but.. come next month it will be dicey.
I am using my “trying to be in the moment” attitude with all things and especially with the financial stuff but I’m the kind of person who also likes to plan out and budget so I’m learning that I just have to be in the moment and try what I can do for each day and pray and hope that it will all work out in the end…
