Tough Week

This post is a little hard to write. It has been a really hard week for Myke and I. In the money sense.

To make a very long story short, bills are catching up to us and my paycheck is barely helping. So between trying to cut things out of our budget and me trying to find another job, I’ve been stressed and scared at the same time. 
So on Monday, Myke and I had dinner together and watched some TV. During this hard time I felt that it was important that we spend time together to remind each other that we are here for each other. I’m so glad that we did.

We are looking at this as a test from God and even then it is really hard. We are confident that things will turn out just fine. It’s just not knowing when that will be can be very scary for a young married couple.

Job searching is also one of the most annoying things on the planet! I’ve applied to jobs not in my state because I’m THAT desperate. I’ve also felt this big desire that something needs to change in my life, mostly in the job world. Hopefully it will happen soon. 

One big reason why I’m writing this is because I’m sure that after the holidays, many other people are struggling with money as well. Myke and I have thought about what we both need to do different and maybe I can even share some money saving ideas with you all as Myke and I go through this journey. I will find the happiness during this hard time! I’m determined!  
Until then, I leave you with some comforting words that helped me yesterday. From Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling. If you haven’t read this, you need to. It is beyond comforting. I hope that if you are going through any struggle that this brings you some comfort.

    *hugs* This, too, shall pass.
    I was unemployed for 10 months in 2011. At that time, my boyfriend stole $3,000 from me, and I had to move in with my parents in order to stay off the streets. Eventually, I got a job and was able to struggle to my feet….then was laid off again 4 months ago. It’s all a cycle, but as long as you have your health and your loved ones, you WILL be ok.

    Also, do apply for state assistance. Many states have programs to help you make ends meet, from food stamps to work credits and retraining to utility discounts. It’s worth checking into! In the meantime, do call your creditors and explain the situation- most will work a payment plan out with you, if they know you’re trying to pay them something, even if it isn’t the full amount.

    Keep your head up, hon….it will get better!
