I am thankful for my financial independence. I'm not completely solvent by any means, but to be able to live on my own, without roommates, in a large and convenient and quirky apartment, to be able to eat the way I want to, to be able to support my book and fabric habits....I feel free. I'm still paying off massive college and car debt, but even the sting of bills can't compare with the sweetness of a life lived on my own.
(I don't have a pic for financial independence, but I DO have a pic of my awesome parents. Yay!)
