My Daily Chat With Money

Want to have a better relationship with money?  Who doesn't, right?  Well, as with every relationship communication is key.  I know, you're thinking, communicate with my money? WTF???

It's very simple, and very quick.  You have just have to touch base with money every day.  I don't mean spend it, or look at it, though that's fine too.  I mean have an actual conversation with it, or chat, if you will.

I usually have my chat with money just before going to sleep.  I spend most of the conversation thanking money for the things it brought me that day. For example, the heating in my house, the food in my fridge, the clothes on my get the idea.  Of course, some days are exceptional and I get to say thank you for this amazing vacation, or thank you for that delicious meal, or thank you for that fun night out.

Sometimes I have to apologize to money.  Yep, it's true.  Sometimes I get a bit anxious if I think something is gonna cost me too much.  Sometimes I can be cheap.  So I apologize to money. I assure it that I know it's me building walls and that I'm gonna knock 'em down.  And then I thank it for being patient and waiting for me to snap out of it.

I always finish my conversation with "God bless, you money." Simple, straight to the point, and very effective.  You don't have to use these exact words if they don't sit well with you though.  You can say something like, "I appreciate you, money" or "I love you money"  Now those are some powerful words! Who doesn't want to hear that from someone they're in a relationship with?  Try it and see how you get on. Go on, I dare you!
