I suspect there’s a bigger picture happening, yet I can’t see it, and these lines look BOLD.


Here’s a situation:

I’ve been trying to decide whether to throw continuing education on a credit card, or wait to pay off debt before making the plunge. My conversations with Spirit have been about responsibility, changing my relationship with money, changing my spending behavior from debt financing to funding from cash flow, what my soul’s needs are in this moment, whether time actually exists and how that plays into how my APR is computed…the list goes on.


I feel tugged in both directions, because the sign is that my income is increasing. Is that Spirit saying go take the class, or pay off more debt so you can take the class sooner? I guess this isn’t the first time more money in the bank has caused some confusion! I hear financial coaches talk about everyone having an ‘upper limit,’ where we start to get uncomfortable with the amount of income or capital in the bank. Am I touching my upper limit? Quick! Move it further up!


Back to the matter at hand – I can think of many practical applications of the education in question, yet I also know that not worrying about my debt will make the process a lot more fun. It’s like choosing the stadium you want to play in before beginning the game. It’s not that I purport to know the outcome, it’s just that I know I’ll be less stressed out over finances if I don’t take on additional debt right now.


Patience is wisdom, as a friend mentioned recently.


I’ll buy that…for now.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
