These posts had me questioning the many “if onlys” of my life.
If only I didn’t have student loans.
If only I didn’t spend so much money on my college education or planned better.
If only I didn’t have something — BILLS! — that keep me from exploring life.
If only I didn’t have student loans. Those freaking students loans are ruining my life.
What would I do without my student loans?
Backpack through Europe, LIVE in Europe for awhile, freelance while I travel cross-country, being a hippie mom, who carries her kids around on her body and makes all their food. Save every single penny I have, load all my crap at my parents’ house and EXPLORE.
A girl can dream, right?
But for now, I am embracing some things that gives me a sense of happiness despite being stuck to a 5-day-a-week job (that pays well, mind you.) I hike. I farm at my CSA. I make crafts. I lessen my load in life so I can enjoy the things I DO have, instead of accumulating more that I don’t need.
And this is how I feel about a lot of things: my future wedding, my future house, my future path. Lessen my load and enjoy what I have.
