As my finances are primarily in order these days I find myself with less interest in writing about money. My inspiration and posts ebb and flow, some weeks I feel particularly inspired and other times I’m just tapped out on the subject.
I wish I would have named this blog something other than One Frugal Girl. I’ve been so focused on personal finances for the last seven years that it’s hard to evolve into other topics without feeling strange about switching gears.
I’ve written a few posts about other things, but I find myself hesitant to publish them as I still feel relatively confined to the topic of money.
I seem to read and re-read the same advice about money. I’m more interested in personal stories and find many blogs these days are focusing on advice that feels distant and abstract.
I suppose my disinterest is par for the course. Now that we’ve refinanced our mortgages, set calendar reminders to check our credit card statements and use bill pay there is simply less need to think about our finances. I’ve been home now for nearly two years and it seems things have stayed in order despite leaving the world of steady paychecks.
In fact it seems hard to remember a time when I struggled with money. When I reach into my pockets I find random dollar bills and no longer feel the need to rearrange my cash by value.
This isn’t the first time I’ve wondered what path to walk next. Perhaps it’s not just a question of money. Maybe this is a bigger question of what to do next. I’m not exactly sure, but it’s certainly something worth pondering.
