It’s important to be comfortable while being uncomfortable. It’s part of being flexible. It’s part of life.
I started a new job in November and I have had few moments of comfort since. My hands are always filled with grime, I have smashed fingers several times, and I’m with a completely new group of people (I’ve left my work family behind). I’ve also been trying new things financially.
For the first time ever, I’ve switched to an HSA through a high deductible health plan. I did the math and it should be beneficial to me. I started hanging my laundry to dry. I started bringing dinner to work twice a week so I don’t have to buy food. I started shopping at different grocery stores. I started challenging myself to cook more from scratch. I’ll keep going too because I’m really loving it.
I want to look into making some side income with my Old Man now too. We both want to retire one day and the only way that will be possible is with hard work. So maybe we can get a few thousand dollars more and invest all of it to go somewhere great.
What uncomfortable things do you do?
