this weeks monday mantra

August 31, 2009 in mantra

This week is going to, hopefully, be short.

I believe that keeping yourself on a strict budget is a lot more difficult than it sounds.

I’m addicted to Cherry Coke Zero and Lucky Charms right now.

I wish I was already making the big bucks.

I’m jealous of people with less anxieties at the moment.

Soundtrack/Mantra for the week: Keep breathing. You can only control you.

I am right there with yah on the making big bucks part. I keep telling myself that all this junk I have to put up with for engineering will pay off at some point.

Couldn't agree with you more. I'm jealous of less anxiety, and well I just wish I were making money! I see you moved on from humus to coke and lucky charms.

I hope that you have a very stress-free and relaxing week (which I'm also hoping is short)!

It's so, so hard to stick to your budget no matter what, I think! I'm trying to be better about mine and it's extremely difficult!

Strict budgets are worse than diets!!! Grrrrr!!!

I wish this week was as short as my attention span, it would be over already!!!

The budget thing gets easier the longer you do it. It's just a way of life for me now.
