love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
The more I develop a positive, intimate relationship with my money, the more opportunities for abundance I have.
I’ve been on a mission for some weeks to track every single penny I spend whether it’s cash or debit (I’m not a big credit card spender). This is part of my personal emotional-financial recovery plan I’ve started for myself based on Bridgforth’s Girl, Get Your Money Straight. I’ve only had one bad week when I didn’t track my money (I had to give myself a consequence which SUCKED– 7 whole days without Pepsi). However, I’ve noticed that when I do, good things come my way. Just about every time I head to the vending machine to get an unplanned snack or drink (I usually budget a couple of dollars a day toward this so I’m talking about the dollars I don’t plan), free food or drink comes right before! Just within the past 24 hours, I was heading to the vending machine to get a much needed Pespi and my principal stopped me to inform me that he put about 20 beverages in the fridge that he had shaken out the machine (another blog for another time 😀 ). That same morning, I ducked out of the professional development to get a Pepsi and in the break room there were liters of it on the table for everyone. Just now, I was heading to get a snack before my next professional development, and our new lunch company (Revolution Foods which are AMAZING and delicious) had lots of food that they were using for taste testing. I love this abundance (yes I know that the other lesson is that I need to pack snacks and drinks with my lunch).
Random aside as a writing teacher: I use a LOT of parentheses and exclamation points. I blog like I think so I have tons of random asides. Just another aleia(that’s me!)-ism I guess. See, there was another one.
