“In less than three years, Carrie Rocha and her husband, Marco, paid off $50,000 of nonmortgage debt and accumulated a six-month emergency fund and other savings by clipping coupons, buying store brands and reducing unnecessary expenses.” - Source: Yahoo.com
Amazing, isn’t? Not only did this couple get out of (significant) debt, they managed to pad their savings account in the process. Few people would have the courage and will-power to achieve such a feat.
So what can you take away from this? Two things actually…
1. Small things add up… and over time they lead to BIG RESULTS. The same goes for breakups. Whether you’re trying to get your ex girlfriend back or just get over her, little changes can (and will) have a big impact on the eventual outcome. For example…
a) Start exercising if you don’t already. And if you do, push yourself a little harder. Not only will you feel better mentally (exercise releases mood-elevating chemicals in the brain known as endorphins) but look better as well. Both results play a big role in getting past this as fast as possible.
b) Get a new hobby. It will take you mind off your ex and make you a more well-rounded person (not to mention you’ll have plenty of fun).
c) Do something out of the ordinary (e.g. talk to a perfect stranger walking down the street. You never know what sort of relationship it can lead to - and how it will ultimately better your life).
As for the second take-away…
2. There’s a silver lining in every cloud. This couple has found theirs. Overcoming their ordeal has left them with much more than money: the confidence of knowing they can handle the hardships life throws their way… and come out ahead in the process.
The same is true for breakups. Sure, it’s a bad spot to be in. But depending on how you look at things… it can be the end of something good, or the chance to start something better. The choice is up to you.
