Do what matters most - first

Do you do what matters most - first?

In a world where money is king and extra fast is everything i find myself being forced to slow down, spend less and make do. In the past i have often remarked about 'how nice it would be to live without money' but i never thought that my life would so evolve that, that statement would become true.

However that day seems to been forced upon me. For me living on less is not a problem but the world expects me to want worldly pleasure, just simple ones such as going out for a burger or going to see a movie. When i tell people that i have no money they continue to try and cajole me into whatever it is that they would like me to do, but really when i say i have no money, i mean it - honest.

I have been reading a number of blogs recently talking about 31 days to ..... each blog focusing on a different themes but all with one intent to make life better. There are many things i would like to change in my life and i always have good intentions to succeed, but i always seem to fail. Yes, i have written about this not so long ago and here i am back feeling like a failure again, but i will only have failed if i don't get up and keep fighting. I cannot to afford to fail.

I need to change what i eat and how and when i eat it. I know it won't be easy but for 31 days i need to create new habits and do away with the old, one thing at a time. So for 31 days i'm going to eat differently, better.

Habit One: Eat one portion of fruit with each meal.


  1. You are not a failure your just human :) love emily.
    p.s- healthy foods are alway good but sometimes the best ones which you want are too expensive so u go for the cheaper option chocolate

  2. i didn't want it till you said it arghhhh

  3. It's so true, you can go along fine making do with less but then other people just don't get it. I've have times when I've beent skint and I'll say to people 'I'm broke, I can't go out.' And they'll go 'Come on....sure you can!'. Uh, no. I can't. What's wrong with that?

  4. There is nothing wrong with living with just enough.
