Money Monday – Budgets

I have a confession. I used to hate the word budget. I tried to avoid it at all costs.

It made me feel restricted and deprived. Here were the numbers, on paper, telling me all the things I couldn’t have.

Until I realized, I had it all wrong.

For the first time in a long time, I am choosing to follow a budget.

In a prior life this would have been unimaginable and it would have felt awful.

Now it excites me. I feel like a kid in a candy store.

I have a budget I love.

It’s helping me get really clear about what I want.

It’s helping me create intimacy with myself and my money.

It’s helping me be really conscious about what I”m doing with my money.

It’s helping me keep the big picture in mind.

It’s helping me see I don’t need to spend money to feel good.

I’ve realized budgets aren’t about what you can’t have.

They are 100% about what you can have.

They are about owning your choices.  For your money and your life.
