The shopaholic in me will never go away. But I’m really surprised at how much I can withstand the resistance of buying things right now. As you all know on my previous blog, I bought a house. Yes, an investment! So I really control all my expenses right now. I still use my credit card, yes, but I make sure that I don’t overspend.
I still remember, maybe two years ago, when I used to just purchase whatever I want and use my credit card, and seeing my bill go up to five digits! I also cannot remember how I was able to pay all of that. Now I limit myself to just use my credit card once or twice. I mainly use it for gas or never at all.
Isang investment lang pala ang makakapagbago ng spending habits ko. Now I can’t believe that I could pay a certain downpayment for a house every month, that I just used to pay for clothes and shoes. Sobrang hirap, if you ask me, because I also don’t limit myself when it comes to enjoying my own salary. Tapos magbabayad pa ng bahay. But when you think about the future, and anung mangyayari once na nakatayo na yung bahay, sobrang worth it. Ngayon pa nga lang na 5% palang ung construction, naeexcite na ako. Pano pa kaya pag nasa 80% na? :)
I hope everything will be okay, with the construction, with everything. Right now, medyo nagkakaron pa ng problem with the electric post within the subdivision, but I know it will all be settled soon. I’m praying for it every night.
I remember when Nayj said, “Tumatanda na talaga tayo.” Because this is what we think of na, hindi na yung petty things. Talagang grown up stuff na. At age 25, I’m proud of what I have achieved so far. And I am looking forward to what else is in store for me. I am truly truly blessed.
