In the spring, I had a 1:1 workshop around my relationship with money. The goal was to uncover my emotional connection with money, my fears around money and the stories I told myself.
We worked on saying different statements out loud and getting comfortable with these. Not an easy task but it taught me that all my views and thoughts around money are just stories and these can be changed.
For projections about things we desire and feel money provides:
I am _____________ with or without the money.
For projections about fear:
I am _____________ and it's ok / and I love it.
I did this with Max St John and in the weeks and months after the workshop, I felt a shift in how I saw money in my life. I was more aware of my habits and emotions around money.
One big change I have made recently is to "own" my budget. Really live it. Not just make a spreadsheet with a line item and then go on spending money. So how could I do this? One area I realised I was spending too much money was my food budget. About 6 weeks ago I set myself the challenge of only shopping with a set amount of cash per week.
This has turned into a really fun exercise and the children have also joined in. I shop differently now. I don't just throw items into my shopping basket. I shop for food I need and I meal plan. I feel a pride in myself for keeping to the budget and I always know how much money I have left over.
So for me, shopping with cash works and I have a much healthier bank account and budget!
