Kennedy said change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. Go out to Kansas City Missouri and have a conversation both Laurie Laurie. How can adopt the day myself help? Hi guys so excited to be talking to you. I have a question about saving for college and transforming anxiety into confidence. I am a single mom to eleven year old daughter I started following Dave Ramsey's advice in. Two thousand, seventeen and I've made a monthly budget ever since then became debt free, and then two weeks ago, I bought a house with one hundred percent down payment. Way Way. This leaving. Knocking it out of the parts, so it should be like elated, but instead I'm like so hyper focused on saving for my daughter's College. And then I'm anxious about it, so I still can't stop. Being does ten. So Laurie real quick before Dundee really. Simpson helps you out here, How how much was your house? Thirty, thousand, you paid a hundred and thirty thousand dollars cash for your house. Did. How are you? Thirty nine, I. One you are. Congratulate Hungry. So. Let me. Ask you a few questions. Did you get divorced a few years ago. I sure did. Where did you get divorced? It was finalized in two thousand seventeen. Right around when I found Dave Ramsey now so. Just in a couple of sentences, tell me what that experience was like for you. and it was an awakening I. You know I felt like I wasn't financial responsible, and it was time for me. It'd be an amateur Dole, and be able to be financially independent and take care of my daughter on my own. So. Walk me back right before that you had a great job of glossing over which I appreciate and that means you've got some well fortified a defense mechanisms and I appreciate them. What was the experience of the divorce like? Was it exciting and exhilarating, or was it devastating? I was numb. Actually It took me about a year before I finally walked away, it was not a healthy relationship. And so one of the I think one of the most challenging things when when folks go through divorce is obviously the divorce, right? You are losing a part of you especially. If you've got a kid, you've been together for ten years five years. You've got some time. This is a human being is woven into their part of you. But there's another loss that nobody talks about. And that is the loss of trust in yourself. Right. And suddenly you find yourself Laurie. I thought I. Love this person I thought. I was strong. I thought this and this and this and all of a sudden. I don't trust Laurie anymore. And what often happens. Is you jump into the next? Strong. Sure thing which in your case praise, God was the baby steps was a trust, a guy that America's trusted for thirty years just to tell you the truth in simple easy ways. And now you're at the other end of that now you working on becoming a millionaire now you working on writing a check for your kids college with a smile on your face. And what slowly starts to happen when you get on the back end of that as you start to realize, I still have to deal with the loss of trust in Laurie. And so at some point you've you've you've by this point? Hopefully, you've you've grieved the separation from your ex-husband. You are Kickin, but financially you are. Tell right now. You're a great mom who loves her daughter in his already thinking about tomorrow's GonNa. Be Daughter. That's awesome. I Want Laurie to be able to look in the mirror, entrust Lori. And if you have done that, that's incredible. My Gut tells me that when you're getting to the end, and now you're not able to enjoy this debt free house. You're already thinking okay. Now needed to go to this anytime. You think of the words I need to and I should. That's the old anxiety coming up. That's the old I don't quite trust Laurie yet and I'm looking for the next plan to get on and so I. Want you to get with the community. I want you to get with a counselor. I want you to get with some folks at a local church and I. Want you to look backwards over the last four years at every step along the way where you have been successful you. You have one and you have done well, and you have honored your family and you find yourself. You are a champion. Laurie. You've done it and the only person in your world. That doesn't recognize US right now. Is You and I? Want to for whatever it's worth I. WanNa free you from that now I. Don't think I have the power to do that, but it sounded cool on the radio. And I want you to get surrounded by some folks that you trust, and can be vulnerable and start rebuilding the trust in Laurie because man. The rest of your your life. You and your daughter are going to be a force to be reckoned with, and you're growing powerful, strong, beautiful, brilliant, strong, future woman to and you've laid the foundation for her. Love it going out of Charleston South. Carolina last call for today. We're GONNA have a conversation with Tucker a real quickly. Tucker. How can not doubt deny help man? Hey! How's it going, guys?
