Amy said yesterday that all this is making her feel sick with worry. She is worried I’m not going to be happy over the next 6 months living on so little. (Interesting fact - $28 is actually over 7 times the daily income in India). She is worried that I’ll regret giving up all that I have.

To try and stop her worrying I asked her two simple questions:

“Would you do it for me?”

To which she responded: “Yes”

“Would you be happy doing it for me?”

“Yes” she said again.

Sometimes in life you just don’t have a choice about doing something. That’s ‘not having a choice’ in a bad way. You just realise you don’t want to do anything else.

I’ve noticed that my language around the debt has changed over the last three weeks – I no longer refer to it as ‘her debt’, instead I find myself referring it to ‘our debt’.

Sometimes you can’t just sit on the sidelines and let someone else play the whole game without you.

Look Wheel Of Fortune executives – I am trying to be more sporty (‘sidelines’, ‘whole game’ references) and as I type this I am looking at a car magazine and cleaning my gun collection.
