You can't box life. That's what these 5 weeks of this online #moneymagic course with Donna McCallum AKA Fairy Godmother is confirming for me.
It's been another week of fascinating realisations and building onto the foundation of my relationship with money, but at the same time life is throwing me some interesting situations.
While this week's exercise called for me to look deeply at what makes me happy and how much I would need to have financial freedom in the many years to come, both exercise have been alighted with life changing decisions.
Our house that we are renting has been sold. At the same time my mom and her other half are trying to work out their future and feel completely in limbo. Amazingly, although it's been highly emotional and I've shed lots of tears of confusion, money has not been a fearful part of my upcoming choices at all. If anything, this #moneymagic course has helped me feel completely confident that I will be fine financially and has allowed me to not carry the cloud that usually weighs over me when it's decision time.
For the first time in my partnership I have full access to the Lifeology bank account (I always had it, but now I actually know what is going on financially). This week I moved from operating all the finances in a savings account to being all grown up and opening and current account. I opened my first savings account at Capitec, which I have called 'Financial Freedom' and money and me are truly forming a healthy relationship.
My very patient and dear friend Joanne spent Saturday afternoon at me, sipping on wine and setting excel spreadsheets for me to monitor my finances so that I can eventually take a set salary from the business. Seriously, at the moment, I don't know what I spend.
We can't box life ... let's get back to that.
Every day I chat to money and I chat to myself about why I have such a blossoming relationship with money and in that chat I have watched other parts of my life shift too. Donna explained this week, that as your self worth grows, so will your net worth. It's been amazing to watch how other areas of my life is simply falling into place as I focus on improving my relationship with money.
Now that I'm less afraid to spend, I'm eating the way I always knew I wanted to. I'm about 80% raw with such a variety of recipes that I'm playing around with. I've also booked for my first trail walk AND am starting Yoga with my friend Jenn this Wednesday.
My money relationship has changed so much that I headed off today and bought myself a Yoga mat without hesitation.
Money has become tangible and real. It has become something that works together with me and that has shown me how it helps me with each cent I spend. I'm finding myself getting excited when my medical aid goes off because I'm so grateful for the medical security it proved.
I truly thought that the time of this #moneymagic course was all because I'm creeping closer to 40, but after the week ?I've had, I realised that the events of my life would be petrifying and I would be so far handling this #projectme time in my life with confidence and fearlessness.
Next week marks the halfway point in this #moneymagic journey with a truly amazing woman, Fairy Godmother and I couldn't be more grateful for the time, ever growing relationship with money and lesson that self worth and net worth are so closely linked.
