Archives For debt free

Freedom!

This week marked an amazing milestone in our family’s journey. It was the culmination of more than a decade of hard work. It consumed every spare moment in the last year of my life, and it was worth every minute of struggle and strife.

We finally sold our house in Trussville. We closed on Tuesday just a few hours before I boarded a flight to Boston for a business trip. Our family tree is forever changed because selling the house was the final step in our plan to become COMPLETELY DEBT-FREE!

Our future plans will no longer be shaped by our slavery to the bank. We’re no longer working to pay someone else. Our lives are finally our own, and I’ve got to tell you that it’s a pretty awesome feeling.

If you’re traveling down this same road, I want to offer my encouragement to stay the course. Continue making hard decisions and sacrificing for your goals on a daily basis. You can do it. I promise you won’t regret it.

As I’ve walked around this city, I can’t help but think that the world looks different, somehow. My first days as a truly free man were spent in another world, 1,200 miles away from my family and my land. We haven’t even had time to celebrate this hard-fought victory. It’s not the way I envisioned it playing out, but by the time you read this, I’ll be back home on the Ant Farm burning brush and chasing chickens… and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be!

We are free.
