I just invested in myself and in my future in a BIG way.
Felt good. Felt right. Felt oh so perfectly timed.
And it felt like a worthy reason to part with a huge chunk of my savings. Not at all typical of me if you know me and how I am with money.
I collect much more than I spend. I don't spend much all. Never really have except for schooling and courses. Money well spent!
My comfort has always been in building and protecting the things that provide the most amount of freedom for me (having the time and the energy to truly live and create is at the top of that list) so I care deeply about where each dollar goes.
As someone who is in school and not working full-time or receiving any financial support, the less money I spend = the more happy and free I am to spend my time and my days as I wish, as my current life situation demonstrates.
I love the choices I make. They are always in alignment with what I truly value. Are yours?
And tonight I made a new choice, and it was a "100% HECK YES!!!" choice (you can always trust those and ideally should only be saying yes to these kinds) because it didn't at all feel like I now have less money.
It felt like those dollars were simply the means to get to where I truly want to go, and so I parted with them without fear or worry.
It was as simple as exhaling. It felt beautiful and easy.
And it reflects just how much I believe in what I'm about to do.
I'm banking on myself.
Do you bank on you, too?
We've got nothing to lose and so much to gain when we do something as bold as that.
To super bright futures and feel good investments 🌺

A FEW DAYS LATER ...
A few days ago I invested in a course / program that felt 10000000% right and perfectly timed to be in.
After I'm done my first 30 days (it's 12 weeks long and the support lasts a year) I will share what it is and what the program offers and I'll give my honest feedback about it so far.
We were asked to introduce ourselves and our very specific goals for this course, so I did that last night and woke up to 82 comments of incredible encouragement from people around the world who are on the exact same mission as I am!!!!
What a great beginning to my next chapter!!!
As a person who prefers to do her work and transformations solo, I surprised myself last night by participating in this part of the course.
And I gotta say, there's something very real and empowering about publicly stating your dreams (to people who want to see you succeed, of course) - and very liberating as well when all of them are complete strangers!
My beloveds know what I'm after and why, and this is my HECK YES step to getting there.
My WHY is BIG and connected to my heart and soul, and I truly believe we have the power to create anything we feel deeply aligned with.
So, I wish all of us incredible success in whatever it is we're after! You really can bring your biggest dreams to life. You were born to! Why else would you be here? To suffer and wish life was different? Nope.
You're here do the work that will change your life.
We deserve to express and fulfill our highest potential in this lifetime and it is my goal to do just that.
With love and enough optimism for the planet today,
