And even then…at some point your shoes get worn out and the manufacturer discontinues them or upgrades them and you face a little bit of a set back where that groove you’d found isn’t feeling quite so groovy. Getting started on a budget is not an easy thing to do. And it won’t be perfect. Even when you’ve been doing it as long as I have. But take it from someone that has been at this a while: the setbacks become fewer and farther between; Murphy camps out less in your backyard because it’s just not as fun for him anymore. And when you start to see a little success in each of your small victories then you it will keep you going. You will fall down. Get back up and try again. It’s worth it. I promise.
