Hi!  I’m Shirria, wife, mother of five, full time Social Worker, and now blogger at Goal Digging to Happiness!   Goal Digging to Happiness will document my journey to financial freedom, work independence, early retirement, and much more time with my family.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, jogging, and creating. Recently, I discovered a new interest in baking, but we’ll see how long that last.  Like and follow Goal Digging to Happiness on Facebook, Twitter @Diggingtohapp,  Instagram and Youtube!

I started this journey living paycheck to paycheck.  I had about 10 credit cards, 2 car loans, a mortgage and over $100k in student loan debt!  Since beginning my journey, I’ve paid off over $30,000 of debt!  Read all about my debt total here.

 Warning Signs of Being in Debt

  • Living paycheck to paycheck
  • Huge credit card balances
  • Dependent on credit cards or lines of credit
  • No savings AT ALL!
  • Purposely missing bills to pay other bills


The idea for Goal Digging to Happiness was birthed while sitting at my Aunt Ann’s funeral, July 2015 and realizing that she died 2 years before her retirement. Read more about that here or watch below!
