Thought for today:
A member shares:
“I used to beat myself up when I had anxiety about money (which was always). I thought it was a sign that I was weak-willed. That thought actually made me feel even worse about myself, contributing to my despair.
“When I came to DA I was at a point of desperation. I couldn’t dare talk about my debt with anyone, yet my isolation was unbearable, and family and work suffered as a result.
“Today I know I’m a compulsive debtor, which doesn’t make me a bad person. My nature is to take risks with money. I know that I need the structured solution around money that DA provides – a structure of simple fellowship, Steps, Tools, and Traditions – to ground me in sane spending, earning and savings habits.”
Sane money habit questions:
- Am I keeping tracking of all my spending, income and savings.
- Am I not debting, one day at a time?
- Do I talk with others honestly about my money issues?
- Do I have a Spending Plan, and an Action Plan for my goals?
Meditation for today:
There is nothing like a child’s exuberant play. Their highs and lulls are where creativity lives, and their inventive minds grow in the process of play. In the dips and up-swings of life, we too find inspiration, especially as we temper the process with loving kindness and gentleness toward all, including our inner child at play.
Affirmation for today:
“I embrace my creative spirit, and use its power to adopt sane habits.”
