I love money

I love money. How many of you felt uncomfortable even just reading that?

We've attached so much significance and meaning to something we don't ever really like to talk about. We've assigned definitions of success and wealth to money, which might blind us to seeing ALL the ways in which we are successful and wealthy.

But, it is okay to love money. We do need it to live. If we love it from a good place, then we can do a lot of great with it - for our own lives, and the lives of others.

I love money - it gives me freedom.
I love money - for all the meals I get to share with friends.
I love money - my clothes aid my confidence and I feel great!
I love money - I get to help others.
I love money - I have a roof over my head.
I love money - I am grateful for all my experiences: travel, retreats, gym memberships, jumping out of planes, cups of coffee with old friends, books to read, computers to work on, cars to get where we need to go, education.
I love money - I love myself.

If our intentions are good, and our gratitude present - money is not the enemy. Money, in and of itself, is not evil.

Maybe this week we take a look at our relationship with money. Are you in a place wanting to shift from fear and scarcity to love and abundance? It's okay - there is plenty for everyone!

Or maybe there's a shift in the perspective of the pressure we put on money for defining our lives.

Money is part of our daily lives. We need it to live, to transact, and to move forward. It is not a greedy pursuit if the desire is healthy.

I love my life
I love pizza
I love money
I love travel
I love dogs
I love hiking

Maybe this week we open our eyes to our beliefs around money. Maybe we're not quite ready to take on fully loving it this week because it still feels weird to say "I love money." Can you try it once out loud, or write it down? Or perhaps this week your next step is "I am grateful for money." 

Either way - stick with it.
