Happy Thursday Bees! Today, I am feeling really really excited for my friend!
Backstory, this is the girl that introduced me to SO some five years ago. She and I are buddies and we’ve always had a special relationship. We come from VERY different places and most people don’t understand why we’re even friends but we are and I love her!
She comes from a fairly disadvantaged situation, her mom’s never really had a steady job or had any savings and she kind of learne the same lifestyle, and has no concept of a budget or going to university or anything. They live pay cheque to pay cheque with kids, a dog and cats. Their life is just generally a little chaotic and a lot broke.
But on Monday, my dear friend is going to college!!!!
She finally decided that she needs to get ahead and find a way to start saving to buy a house and stop living pay cheque to pay cheque. She has accepte that her mom never taught her the things she wants to know, so she’s going to go learn these skills on her own! She’s going to get a college certificate, make a plan and start figuring her life out!
I am just bursting with so much pride and excitement for her!!! She is taking her steps forward and taking control of her life and it is so amazing to see!! I’m so excited to see where she goes and what she does now!
