Camaraderie

A wonderful thing about sharing your financial struggles with others is when they join you on the trek to improvement.

For a time, a group of female friends at work would gather once a week to discuss our money goals. My father likened it to a financial version of Weight Watchers.

As we each achieved our immediate goals, though, the meetings fell to the wayside.

So I feel fortunate that one friend in particular has stuck with the journey. We both have paid off our credit cards, but we still owe much on student loans and desperately need more savings. 

On Saturday, we took a three mile walk together around a lake and discussed the financial road ahead of us. It was so invigorating. 

Sometimes it is the little things in life that sustain us.
