I just got off the phone with Alain, who helped me work out something that had been in my way about buying a car. And that was, I wasn't sure what I could afford because I wasn't in touch with my financial plan. That has been something I've been avoiding. I have lived in survival mode for so long that it didn't matter what my plan was - I needed what I needed and got it at the lowest price I could and that was the end of it. Now that I'm on my "thriving" path, I couldn't see ahead far enough to know if I would be getting in trouble or not. Alain helped me take a look at my financial situation and now I feel confident that any choice I make will be well-informed.
I'm off to see the dealer. I'll let you know what comes of it.
