One station at a time

It’s been a fun and busy week at Luke1428. On Monday, I shared that we had finally paid off our mortgage early. I followed that up on Wednesday by explaining the four big reasons why we chose that route. Needless to say, there has been a whole bunch of page views this week, more than I expected. I guess this is a hot topic after all.

Of course, those who commented here and on my Facebook page have been excited for us. Believe me, so are we. It’s been a conviction of ours that we have been pushing to complete for over four years.

I couldn’t help but feel that some who shared seemed discouraged. They talked about how long it would take them to pay off their mortgage and that they couldn’t ever imagine reaching that goal. Maybe I’m reading into the comments, which is a really easy thing to do.

If you feel that way, like the end is never going to come, I’d like to say three things:

1. We’ve all felt that emotion.

2. One step at a time.

3. The tortoise always wins.
