There are many little things in life that niggle. They’re not big things. It could be a spot of clutter on the bedside or coffee table. Some small thing that someone says or does, that just pops into your head as an annoyance. In and of itself, it’s not a big deal, but over time… I think they are like icebergs, or maybe a pimple – with just a little bit showing – and a whole lot of negative attitude or stress underneath. Do your niggles look like these? Kind of cute aren’t they?
I thought I’d throw in the picture so that you could give your niggles faces too. I have many niggles in my life, most of them clutter related. Every once in a while I hear something that wakes up dormant niggles – negative things that people have said way back before the dinosaurs, and I see how they are still influencing me right now!
But, having said all that, I have a small debt that is niggling me right now. Part of the problem is that in the last month or so, MR. M. C. Sears has been escorting me around town. He’s gained some weight during that time, that’s been frustrating. Of course, he’s back in his dresser drawer again, but …
I had a plan, and until this blip in the line, it was going well. I had another look at what was going on and decided it was time to tackle another smaller debt – one that doesn’t have the opportunity to sneak out and get bigger. Right now it is quite small – $260 or so. Paying it off quickly would free up another $60 per month that I can apply to the other debts. That’s what I’ve decided to do. Get rid of another small niggle so that I can focus on the bigger issues in life.
And now that I’ve got this off my chest (This post too qualifies as a niggle!) I can get back to what I should be doing – writing my paper and sending it in!
Have a wonderful Canada Day!
