Your Life A-Z MONEY
No better time than today to get your financial self in order for the New Year! Do you have a budget? If not, stop right now and make a quick list of your monthly expenses. Include everything from mortgage to groceries and, yes, make sure you do not cheat. Put those Starbuck coffees in your budget. You will be shocked how much of your hard earned money goes into their pretty packaging. That is not a criticism! I think we should treat ourselves, even daily, if we want good quality things that make us feel good and smile. It is important though when it comes to money that we learn to honor it and trust it. We need to know where our hard-earned money is going and only then can we make a choice about how we spend it. Starbucks is a choice. If you find yourself broke at the end of the month, then it is important to make different choices so that you feel good about how you are choosing to invest your money. If you don't know where it is going, then you are operating from a place of deprivation and sabotaging your feel good feelings at the end of the month. Don't be afraid of your money. Develop a healthy relationship with it and make it work for you - not against you.
