I failed a major February goal… but for a good reason?

Well… This post marks a failing of a February goal. Today I was supposed to be at the end of my “10 Day No Spend Challenge,” but unfortunately, that failed on the fourth day.

I’m not going to make excuses. Yes, I forgot to pick up my dry cleaning prior to the challenge. Yes, my co-workers invited me out for a birthday and I said yes. Yes, I had some Paperbackswap books to mail. But most of all, I failed because I bought another plane ticket. And not to the World Domination Summit like I was supposed to, but to New York City for the Make Sh*t Happen meetup.

“The whaaaaaa-?” you ask.

Yes. First week of February on our MSH call, Jenny Blake mentioned she was having a meetup in NYC the weekend of April 27-28. I had a music festival ticket for that weekend… I couldn’t skip it. So I listed it and swore to myself that if it sold, I was buying a plane ticket to New York.

It sold in one day.

I consider that the universe sending me a message, so I bought the plane ticket and my 10 Day Challenge is ruined. Oh well, there’s always next month.  Until then, excitement mounts for both Costa Rica AND New York!
