If you follow me on Social Media, you probably know this was a ROUGH week for me.
Last weekend, my car stopped. Bella, that’s her name.
My DREAM CAR, 5 Vision Boards, Sacrifice, Saved Money .. DIED.
Talk about hurt feelings. Everyone who knows me, knows I LOVE MY CAR. I talked about it for probably a year straight. Anyone who would listen knew, I set a goal and getting that car was so big for me.
Then she just died, to add insult to injury it’s a MAJOR thing. Like engine stuff, SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS worth of stuff.
So naturally, I have been sick. There has been a lot of back and forth about fixing it or trading it in or letting it go, a lot of back and forth. A lot to think about.
I don't want a new car. I LOVE BELLA. I also dont wanna dish out 7 racks for a car I have only had a year. The Struggle was Real.
What I usually do as a person, is get input from people I respect, talk about it with my friends, etc. Which, in its essence can be mentally and emotionally exhausting, especially with something as important as my transportation.
I was feeling down on myself, like Jasmine, maybe you made a bad decision getting this car. You should have waited. You didn’t stay in your lane. You rushed into this. This was a bad decision.
But then I thought about it…
I was not hasty about making the decision to get this car.
I saved my money.
I got a deal.
I did what I was supposed to do.
Except maybe get the extended warranty,I probably should have gotten the extended warranty. I decided against it because it was ridiculously expensive. So, I made a conscious decision that I wouldn’t and I would make sure I had money put away to pay for something should it happen. I know Audi is a luxury brand. I know things cost money to fix. I was ready for $1500, $2000 maybe even $3000...but $7000 HURT. I feel like $7000 would hurt most people.
Then it was #InternationalWomensDay and I had to get my sh*t together. Like bihhhh .. who are you?
Do you deserve to drive the car you want to drive? YES.
Do you work hard and take care of business? YES.
Have you made it through everything thus far? YES.
Then why you stressin? You got this. Everything will work out as it should.
So put ya crown on & keep it moving.
Tuh! I am WOMAN & I CANNOT be stopped!
I wasn't designed to lose & neither were you!
Happy Friday :)
