No matter how much time you invest in planning for any eventuality, life has a tendency at throwing you a curveball when you least expect it! As the old adage goes, “If it isn’t one thing, it’s another.” This adage hasn’t resonated with me more than it has this year. A quick glance at my Instagram feed or sifting through posts this past year and you’d have thought otherwise.
The beginning of the year started with my youngest son’s temperature skyrocketing without any rhyme or reason. His pediatrician recommended plenty of fluids and different ways to help reduce fever. We followed his advice for a couple of days yet my son’s condition continued to get worse. This prompted us in taking him to the ER since we weren’t seeing any signs of improvement. The doctors couldn’t seem to find the cause of his fever either, but felt it was necessary for him to stay in the hospital for a few days until his condition improved. His condition did improve, but it was a scary experience for all of us! I wish I could say he has been in perfect health ever since. However, it has been back-to-back doctor visits over enlarged tonsils and recurrent ear infections.
It wasn’t until a few months later after his hospital stay that I had issues with my own health. This led to countless doctor visits since it was suspected that I had breast cancer. It turned out that I had a benign tumor (fibroadenoma) after I received my results from the core biopsy. However, an excisional biopsy was performed a couple of months after the core biopsy since they found the size concerning. Needless to say, 2019 has thrown plenty of curveballs (and medical bills) my way!
One of the most important lessons that my mother taught me in life is to continue to push forward no matter what obstacles are hurdled my way. Having this mindset has helped me endure and overcome various obstacles at different stages of my life. There are some situations and outcomes that we simply can’t control, but it is our choice how we deal, respond, or react when life throws these curveballs our way.
For those financial curveballs, your journey for a better and brighter financial future doesn’t have to be daunting! I believe small steps lead to significant changes. I know that in order for me to improve my credit that I must manage my finances well. Creating a budget plan, tracking expenses, and eliminating unnecessary subscription services are some of the things that help me have a healthier relationship with money.
