Change or Die: Huge Life Changes I Must Make to Survive



I know it's been awhile, but I've been doing some serious thinking about what I want my life to be.

I said I was going to move into a two bedroom apartment, but that sort of fell through when I found out that the prices here have gone up DRASTICALLY on those. If I'm going to pay those prices, I need to have more than what is offered here.

Making a Clean Sweep

I've done nothing about decluttering. In fact, I've done nothing, period. I'm super depressed about my life, the state of our country and I've just been paralyzed on moving forward. But now I've made a drastic decision that I won't back down on.

I've decided to get rid of everything and start over. I'm going to devote myself full-time to stripping myself of 95% of my possessions. I want to start back at the beginning where I had nothing and was much happier. I want to go full-on minimalist and stop letting "things" control my life.

Making a Move

While I'm doing all that, I'll be making plans to move. I'm really sick to death of this part of town, where it's very, very hard to make friends or meet your neighbors. It will be more expensive somewhere else, which is why I need to get rid of so much. I'm thinking of having a roommate, maybe two, in an actual house with an actual yard. If I split rent three ways, I can afford it.

Making Money

So towards that goal, I'll have to find a way to make more money, so I'm going to be cranking up the blogs and buckling down to work on doing more affiliate marketing. Don't worry, I won't get obnoxious, but I would appreciate it is you would turn off your ad blockers on this and my gardening site. I won't have any annoying popups, popunders or things that follow you down the page and grey out what you want to read.

Making Myself Healthy

I've already started on a 16:8 intermittent fast, and I'll be starting an exercise program today. I've put this off for way too long, and it's time to get off my fat ass and do something about my health. It will be hard with everything else I have to do, but nothing worth having comes easy. I keep looking in the mirror at my lumpy body and ugly skin and hair and saying "This isn't me. What has happened to me?" It's never to late to be the best you can be.

Why Now?

I need to face the fact that I am soon going to lose my son forever. He's the only family I have, but he's been sucked into the Mormon cult. From everything I read about them, since I'm a pagan, he will soon not be allowed to have anything to do with me, so I need to set myself up to take care of myself in my old age. At 66, this will be hard, and right now, I have no idea how to do it, but I have to try. My only other alternative is to just give up enact my Smith and Wesson Retirement Plan, but I'm not ready to give up yet.

So hang on, it's going to be a wild ride! Hope you will join me.
