One of my intentions for 2017 is to be better with my finances. I spend more than I make, I spend money before I have it and have been drawing off my IRA to live.
Although this bothers me, it seems like a revolving pattern. Its feast or famine.
I decided 2017 is going to be different.
With this intention in place, I have been tight on money for the first part of the year. I lost a renter (a source of income for me), I went out to California, resulting in short hours at my job and had to put unexpected expenses into my car.
There were times that I was ready to cave–run back to my parents, live in my rental (its cheaper for me up north), or say fuck it, I am cashing in my whole retirement. I wanted the security and knowing that money was supporting me.
But, I kept reminding myself. Today, I am ok. Today, all my bills are paid. Today, I have money for groceries. Today the Universe is supporting me.
I have been making it day by day and this is helping me make it month by month.
Now, I am getting more hours at work, I have a second job serving, my apartment has a new tenant and I am selling some Arbonne too.
Did the Universe test me? Probably, it likes to see if you are serious. See, you won’t get financial abundance that sticks until you prove that you can manage your money. I can Universe!! (I have to get some Tony Robbins books! lol)
I had a heart full of gratitude this morning. I made it through a difficult time. Although there was some support from my family, the biggest thing that sustained me was the Faith in knowing that there is a force greater than myself that is always looking out for me.
I made it-thank you Universe!!!
