I wrote about how to re-write your money story in an earlier post. In that post, I revealed how I associated feeling guilty with money and so I consistently undercharged and took on projects for little or no money and justified it as “favors”. Wow what a trip.
Let’s just say, I TOOK CARE OF IT. Now, I’m a lotttt more focused on building my own biz that suits my life goals.
Everyone has their own definition of what they want their body to be and that is certainly more complicated than just “skinny”. I want to be more on the muscular side while keeping my curves. First things first, what are your body goals, what is the body you always wanted?
I attribute TWO things to dropping 2 sizes in less than 6 months. (Yep, I was a size 14, now I am size 8-10. I buy size small shirts!)
I never TRULY understood the importance of a Money Story until I sat down and actually thought about it carefully. First off, a money story is made up of money phrases and distinct actions you experienced as a child. These phrases and actions over time, become your beliefs and how you live your life. We may have heard phrases like:
I often think in life, we spend way too much time self-guessing, rationalizing, and assuming things about our plan before we even have a chance to see it through. In most cases, we stop what we are doing because it’s just too risky, our mind comes up with 10 reasonable things to make us stop.
This all leads to fear and doubt which ultimately kills innovation and creativity.
I haven’t been open about my failures, shortcomings and mishaps because I was waiting for a better time when perhaps I would reach self-accepted success. A time when I could look back on all that has gone wrong and realize that without all those things, I wouldn’t be where I am today. While that realization is slow, I’d thought I’d share some quirky yet very true life lessons that have helped me accept “adulthood” aka responsibility for my actions and life.
Work from home, or WFH is an interesting lifestyle. On the one hand, the first thing that comes to mind is absolute FREEDOM. However, there is something to be said about going to a workplace. It creates structure, routine and even discipline in life that can keep you on track with other things. Of course, there are pros and cons to both, but having worked from home for almost a year and a half, I want to speak about the myths.
