One of the things I discovered very early on in my money journey is that being good with our money isn’t just about the numbers. Yes, I didn’t know what I was supposed to do with my money but even once I did learn and decide what would work best for me, I wasn’t taking action that aligned with that plan. And it’s not like it was too complicated or confusing.
I wanted to spend less money than I was earning (and at the time I had a steady paycheck) and have some money leftover to save. That’s it.
Why didn’t it work? How we interact and behave with money (aka our relationship with money) has a lot to do with our emotions and beliefs.
