Safe spending for mental health

share no 72: At 43 I’m still improving the model of ME.

Disclaimer: I’ve left the raw 2nd paragraph uncoated in order to provoke thought. I hope it resonates with some xx

Thank goodness we’re all different! Wouldn’t the world be boring if we were all the same? And yet in a way, we are all the same. We all want to feel valued, loved, respected and worthy. I daresay we all want happiness and fulfilment, despite some people seeming to revel in bad moods.

So what does this have to do with goal setting? Well, when you’re working out what you want to achieve this year, think about the very end result. If you aim to pay off debt write down why (eg in order to feel relaxed). If you want to eat healthier incorporate in your goal statement something like “so I have more vitality and feel attractive.”

Remember that there are many things that money cannot buy. Thinking about my brother who would have turned 37 two days ago if he had not taken his own life 11 years ago, I can’t help but want to shake some people. Those people that either think money is great (and do anything to have it) and those at the other end of the spectrum who can’t even talk about it because it’s a sad area of their life.

Money cannot bring back my brother but it allowed my sister and I to go overseas and start healing in our own way. It allowed me to take time off work when needed and to honour my brother in a way I could not have done if I didn’t have money up my sleeve. I thank my brother for the worst and best gift of my life, an awakening to balance. He taught me many other things but that’s for a different time. Remember, money is just a tool like a hammer. Use it for good or destruction.

    So true Zed, and we now know that no matter how much money you’ve got, it you’re not healthy its worth nothing. You taught me to pay my bills, work hard, believe in myself, and then enjoy the benefits xx

    • Thanks Michelle. I like the saying that “too many people spend their health accumulating wealth only to spend their wealth trying to regain their health.” How crazy? Glad you’re enjoying life! xx
