Money Positivity

This illustration by Hallie Bateman definitely speaks to me as I have been (and still am) working through my complicated relationship with money.

I have learned to realize that money is neutral. It’s energy that allows me to do more of what I want to do in the world.

I enjoyed Magic Money, by Holly Alexander on this topic. Is this something you relate to? Anything you have come across that has help you understand and improve your relationship to money?

  1. I once learned from a friend: money brings up the good or bad in people, as simple as that.

  2. Reading Bari Tessler’s The Art of Money a few years ago helped my relationship with money, shifting from a “I have no idea where that paycheck went” to values-based spending. In a nutshell, if you were hit by a bus tomorrow and a stranger picked up your checkbook, would they have an accurate picture of what was important to you?

    It’s a good guide to figuring out what lessons you’ve learned about money and how to shed the ones that aren’t serving you.

  3. ‘My money can be used for good’ is something that is very important to me, and makes such a difference in my life.
