Make me wanna holler; the way they do my life! SMH https://youtu.be/57Ykv1D0qEE?t=21 (It’s best to preview this clip in a new tab. I hope you enjoyed that little clip, and welcome back!).
The reason for the title of this blog post was to help explain why people are always feeling broke even though they make decent money; and to explain how to get out of this mindset, right?! Exactly!
So, let me tell you a little story that brought me to this thought…
I’ve moved recently from a warm weather climate with two incomes, to a cold weather climate with one income. I’m not a fan of cold weather. Brrrrr. I suppose I’ve been battling depression, among other things.
Long story; but I’ll try to shorten it without losing you. So, my significant other decided not to work, because he wanted to try something else. However, this was taking too long to show financial results, at least from my standpoint. Bills were piling up and I began to feel alone and really broke; the cold weather wasn’t helping. All the while, I was still trying to live the lifestyle I had become accustomed to (that “two incomes”). Then, in my quest to find another form of immediate relief, I realized that I was living beyond my means. Yeah there I said it! This is the reason I was feeling so broke.
So a cure to feeling broke, is to be grateful for what you have. The second is not to follow the crowd and the third is not to compare yourself to others. We have everything we need! A roof over our head, clothes on our backs, food to eat, utilities, a car or two, etc. Hey things could always be worse, right? I mean, I could be the person who wishes they had all the things I am not being thankful for! Feel me?
So when I think of how broke I am, I revert my thought process to thinking how truly blessed I’ve been. How far I’ve come, You see…the thing with this mindset/affirmation is that- it has to be something one is mindful of in order to face and overcome it. Which is the reason for sharing this with you.
Hey, try not to be so hard on yourself, because this mindset of gratefulness is a work in progress. It takes time to master and I am definitely a work in progress. So, when I start judging myself, I must remember to take a breath and meditate on the positive things in my life. Things could always be worse.
Thank you for reading. Until next time…
