Peace of mind ..

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

Money cannot buy peace of mind.

It cannot heal ruptured relationships,

or build meaning into a life that has none.

~ Richard M. DeVos

 


 

Money cannot buy peace of mind ~ money is a tool. Money is a tool that can support your life and dreams. Money can take you where you wish to go, but cannot replace you as the driver!

 

We all need money to take care of ourselves ~ money is a necessary element in life which provides the safety, security and a foundation for you and I to explore our dreams. The amount of money that we need is a deeply personal issue that can only be determined by each of us individually. How much money we need is a matter of our dreams. Money makes our dreams possible, money creates a sense of safety and money provides opportunity to new experiences.

 

We can each learn to be more conscious with our money, we can learn to pay attention to where our money goes, what we spend our cash on, how we choose to fund our life. We can choose to live large or live more simply ~ these are deeply personal choices that we each need to examine for ourselves. There are many books written on the subject of money management and many courses available on financial planning. We owe it to ourselves to take a deeper look at our fiscal fitness and determine what our personal values are around the subject of money.

 

I believe that it is important to be responsible with our finances, learning to live within our means and making a commitment to honoring our financial obligations with integrity. No matter how we choose to live, large or simply, it is important that we choose based on our personal values.

 

How do you feel about money? What are the stories that you were told about money? Did you grow up hearing that “money is the root of all evil”? Or, “people with money are greedy”? Or were you taught that “money is a tool to be respected”? Money is a tool that provides a certain amount of freedom and security to each of us and we owe it to ourselves to have a healthy relationship with money as well as our bodies, our careers, our homes … money is a vital element in creating your Living Fit Lifestyle!
