Elizabeth’s Situation

My name is Elizabeth, but everyone calls me Ebeth.
I am an extremely enthusiastic person, who believes in setting goals and working hard to meet them.

I enjoy doing anything that gives me the freedom to be myself and be creative.

Whether it comes to public speaking, answering phones, or selling shoes I find joy in impacting people with positivity. 

I moved and transferred schools several times while growing up, which has brought great perspective and boldness in my life.

I believe there is always room for improvement and learning is a skill that should never be lost!

Young and Free
What does it mean to be young and free?
Maybe to you freedom is being able to do what you want, when you want.
Maybe freedom means getting to make decisions by yourself.

In my opinion being young and free, is being full of joy and unrestricted!

Or as Pumba would say, 

Hi, my name is Elizabeth, but you can call me Ebeth.
I'm 22 years old, newly married, passionate about life and loud for no reason!

Like most 22 year olds, I have a lot of goals and dreams.
Thinking about everything I want to do with my life, places I want to go and people I want to impact, can be extremely overwhelming!
I don't know about you, but when I get overwhelmed, I immediately feel frustrated and held back. 
Which would be the opposite of feeling young and free!

How can we, as the "Young and Free" maintain the right attitude and habits to achieve our goals?

Here are a few tips to keep the right attitude to achieve your goals and avoid restriction!

1. Don't develop a romantic relationship with your credit card!
You know the stories of the knight in shining armor who always comes and saves the day when the princess is in trouble? NEWS FLASH, although your credit card might save the day when you need it, it's gonna want its money back, with interest. So guard your heart... I mean your credit card.

2. Plan ahead!
If you have a plan, you will be more prepared! Go grocery shopping instead of eating out. If you know you will be eating out, hunt for coupons and happy hour deals online! Planning pays off.

3. Save some for later!
Every time money comes to you, make a conscious decision to put a portion of that money in savings. Even if that means, you will make a deposit of $1, do it! You will be happy you did.

4. Stay Organized!
I will be the first to admit that I am not the cleanest person in the world. As a matter of fact I should probably attend a messy people anonymous session,
but life seems so much better when my house is in order. Keeping you're living space, bathroom and closet clean will help you SO much!
You won't be running late in the morning, 
or maybe not AS late as usual...
You won't feel the need to go shopping as much,
because you can actually SEE all your clothes!
You will be able to focus more at home. Which will eliminate the need to go somewhere and spend money on coffee to study, read, or even think!


Don't worry and don't let frustration distract you from the goals you have! 

You can achieve every one of them with some determination and good habits!

-Keepin it fresh, young and free,
Ebeth Fielder
