How do you want to receive money?

Being clear on how you want to receive money can help you clarify your goals too! I believe there are elements within us that are afraid to admit how we want to make money for fear of “what will other people think” and “how am I going to pull this off”. For just a moment, don’t think about all that and just allow yourself to write it all out. Today’s Prompts: In a perfect world, how do you want money to work for you in your life? How do you want to feel when you receive it? Spend it? Save it? Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings I can’t be the only one that getting acquainted with money can feel a bit challenging – especially if you…

Permission to Dream

I am the first one to admit, that while I have had a lot of ideas over the years, I did not always give myself permission to dream and it’s a way to hold us back from experiencing the life that we want. Today’s Prompt: Is there something you secretly wish you were working on creating? If yes, what is it? What’s one step you can take forward to make it a reality? What have you been wanting to create to have more abundance in your life but felt like you didn’t have the time or energy to build or do? Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings As I am thinking over the question, one thing that comes to mind for me is my Crochet Academy and…

Your Money Goals

Do you think about your money goals and it feels odd and weird? I think it’s normal because I don’t know that we are taught to set goals, let alone money goals. And yet I believe goals are important because they help you reach a specific outcome or achievement. You can set goals at any moment – no need to wait until December or January and you can start by reflecting on your past year and thinking about where you would like to focus your energy around goals moving forward. Today’s Prompt: Write down three money goals:a. The amount you’d feel “okay” making each monthb. A slightly higher goal that feels like a stretch, but also exciting c. Your large, audacious income goal (aka the…

Your Ideal Day

Writing about your ideal day can be quite powerful when you’re actively working on goals to have the life that you want. It’s one of my favorite activities, when I go through my own goal-setting process. Today’s Prompt: Write out your ideal day in the present tense. You can write it as if it’s already happening and express gratitude for it, or you could write it similar to what I have done below! Here’s an example: “I am so happy and grateful for [my 4-bedroom house in the city/the $50k in my savings account/my designer wardrobe that makes me feel polished & put together]…” Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings I wake up and my partner brings me coffee in bed and we get to spend a…

Today’s Prompt How do you define an “abundant” life? (Don’t worry about how somebody might answer this. Tune into what you truly want for your life.) Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings I may have mentioned this in a previous post, but I’ll do it again because life used to be quite different for me. Life used to be flight or fight and just a matter of survival. It was as if I was trying to stay…

Gratitude Purchase

Today, let’s take a moment and address a gratitude purchase! Small business owners, often include a note of thanks for your purchase to show their appreciation! You can do the same thing for yourself and the things you purchase because you wanted or needed them for something! Perhaps you could make this a bit of a habit to acknowledge how beneficial the purchases are for you! Today’s Prompt What are you grateful to have purchased or received recently?

Is money supporting you?

It might be a bit confusing but is money supporting you? When you embrace journaling, you may consider adding money journaling to your daily routine because it helps you note down where and how much you spent but also to be mindful of impulse purchases and spending money carelessly. If you don’t have a money journal right now, you can still acknowledge how money is supporting you. Today’s Prompt How has money supported you today? Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings It’s Saturday, and I am not planning on going anywhere. I am trying to actually maybe take a day off instead of working, and maybe do some art that’s not my norm.

Today’s Prompt What abundance is available to you right now that you’re not leaning into? (i.e. unused gift cards, an inquiry, an invitation, etc.) Reflection, Thoughts + Feelings I don’t have any unused gift cards what I do have is an amazing partner that takes me out to dinner at least once a week.
