Midlife Crisis or Rediscovered Independence Car?

Life has been pretty hectic these days. I have been busy balancing my two jobs, a wonderful new relationship and moving into my first “all mine” new house. I admit, I feel like I am drinking from a fire hose these days and literally fall into bed some days. The past few months are a blur, there are still boxes all around my house and I don’t see any signs of it slowing down. However, I don’t think I would change a thing.

With all of these changes, I realize that I am transforming into who I should have been all along. I am finding passion in life. I am discovering joy in simple things. I am becoming more independent. I am starting to see my dreams become reality. And finally, I am able to enjoy the fruits of being a responsible bill payer and frugal shopper. With a great credit score and low debt, I was able to qualify for zero percent financing on a new discounted 2015 car, a sexy Mustang at that!

This new ride is not only a symbol of my independence, but the excitement I feel about the direction of my life. I spent too many years being sad and putting off what I wanted. I pushed aside my dreams for others or because they didn’t seem to benefit others. Slowly, I started to forget what I liked. I was a zombie in life.

So say goodbye to the zombie years! I am ready to transform, to follow the course of human nature as we age. Isn’t it common to appreciate more as we get older? Don’t most people want to improve themselves overtime? Do we really get too old to have fun? The Happy Hugger wrote about this topic just the other day and it got me thinking. Am I having a ‘midlife crisis’ or something? I thought long and hard. No, I am not in a crisis. I am in a rediscovery. If I were in a crisis, I would not be happy. If I were in a crisis, I would not be stable. If I were in a crisis, I could not handle decisions. If I were in a crisis, I would not be able to balance my hectic life. Therefore, I scoff at the ‘midlife’ crisis theory and agree with Hope…”we’re never too old to get a new snazzy car. We are never to old to fall in love. We are never too old to find our soul mate.”

With that all said, I think I will go drive around in my new snazzy Mustang with my amazing boyfriend. Who knows where we will end up? But one thing is for sure, we will get there in style:)

(It may be a wide interpretation, but my ‘nature’ is the human nature of self discovery,

which is symbolized by my new Mustang.)

If you are willing to look at some quick ads from the dealer, you could even help me pay for my first payment! If I get 125 “SPAQ” clicks, the first payment is on Ford. So click away and check out the new Fords:) And FYI for those economy conscious folks, my 2015 4-cyclinder turbo Ecoboost engine gets 32 MPG on the highway! So it is sexy AND practical AND affordable (cheaper than my Jetta was actually)! I call that a win, win, win!
