Soooo…where do I begin eh? These past few weeks have been challenging to say the least chile. School has been ripping me a new one, work is just…blah and two of our cars were in the shop. One was involved in a hit and run (in front of our own house!) the other just broke down.
And speaking of broke down…
Okay, not really. But by our standards we are. *Disclaimer: I am throwing caution to the wind by speaking about our finances, as Harris may end up in court again shortly after this is posted. #heyboo* Anyway, Harris is very good at creating multiple streams of income. He started a business a few years back, but he just started cultivating it last summer. And boy did it take off. It required him to work long hours, seven days a week but the money…. man look, it was nothing for him to give me a grand just to blow. I can’t even tell you how much damage I did at Bath and Body Works, American Apparel and various online retailers, spas, restaurants..
Now we weren’t all the way hood rich we continued to save and tithe, upgraded a few things etc. Went to San Juan and a Philly Eagles game and balled out. Life was good. Unfortunately, business has been slow for the past several weeks, Harris has been taking it kinda hard because we have to rely on our regular 9-5 income, where before we wouldn’t have to touch our paychecks. #firstworldproblems I feel like a basic chick. LOL Just kidding.
Seriously though, the reduced income has really affected the pace at which we were trying to accomplish a few things, bigger house, and my insane amount of student loan debt to name a couple. I am taking it in stride as we are still doing better than most people, but Harris not so much. I get it. As a man, you want to be the epitome of a provider. You want the finer things in life, you want to live comfortably,
you want your wife to go out here and stunt.
So we talked it out, decided we weren’t going to worry, prayed, and let it go. We even increased our tithes and continued to build our savings. Well, dontchaknow Harris got a call a couple days ago from a company needing his services, and he is back to being almost as busy as he was before. Look at God. #wontHedoit
Til Next Time….
