I haven’t blogged much lately. My job has kept me busy and major restoration work started at my building that directly impacts my unit. It has been disruptive. In the long-term, it is for the best though.
It makes me think of how perspective and thought processing can make a huge difference in how we experience life in general. It is not any different with money.
Too often, we focus on what we don’t have, or that there is not enough money or that we are broke or buried in debt. I don’t like the word “broke”. It implies we need fixing or that we are almost a lost cause. I don’t like the word “buried” either. It sounds so final.
Focusing on the negative will only attract more negativity. What about focusing on what we have and what we can do instead? What about setting financial goals and work toward them one step at a time?
When we start focusing on what we have and can do, we become more grateful. When we are more grateful, we also tend to be happier and more optimistic. I have experienced this countless times!
When I am grateful for the money I have, it makes me feel more confident and more in control, despite the debt I also have.
