I’m living the pay check to pay check life. Even then I come up short. So before I start something new, I need to fix what I have now. In the second panel is a list of things I pay for every month. Not on that list is health insurance, psychotherapy, and sister’s wedding. The reason is because I’m still not able to pay for those things. They are on the back burner. They need to be moved up.

Honestly, I fell in love with jiu jitsu as soon as I started the first drill. I learned side control escape to closed guard and a hip bump side sweep mount. I’ll post a sketch of it in the future. It’s really cool. The second time I went and saw other women rolling on the mat with such passion and force I knew “I want to do this.” At Unity they are a family. The ones with more experience help the ones with less experience. They were all smiles. It was amazing and I want to be a part of that. I also want to do a tournament. Haha, I’m a bit competitive. Anyways, it costs money and even if they worked with me so I can go, I’d want to put my all in it and not worry about other bills I’d be skimping on in order to train.

It was really hard stopping before I even began but now I have another reason to keep trying harder. I need to be smarter about my spending and how I earn money. I can’t stay where I am right now. I need to move forward. So much motivation this morning!

Oh yes, STAR WARS TONIGHT!!!! ♥♥♥♥
