Excerpt From Chapter 1: Money Does Grow On Trees
Whenever I requested something outside of my parents’ budget, it was a knee jerk reaction to hear this from their lips. My parents often told me the saying, “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” more times than I can recount growing up. There was nothing malicious about it, it was part of our generational programming and patterns. They wanted to instill in my brother and me how we had to work hard for our money, and the value of money.
My mom is one of the best financial planners I know. She has been actively planning the family’s money for most of my life growing up. She was an officer in a ladies’ investment group as well, for a long time. I would often tag along with her and converse with the ladies at the local ladies investment group luncheons. At that time…
The Empire Life Book Series, REDEFINE, is a compilation of female founders sharing their rising to success and personal phenoix personal pivoting moments.
As I healed myself from having any resentment towards other peoples’ inflow of money, and however they had it, I allowed others around me to be more comfortable with money too.
If I had waited for something pretty or perfect, I may have never done anything at all ever, and that is why I just started.
In the journey of redesigning and reinventing your life, you meet yourself every step of the way.
Homeschooling became more demanding, and to keep me organized, I created a schedule that my children referred to as, “The Mother Board”.
Learning to embrace my dreams and desires was a huge breakthrough for me about self-love. No relationship is worth forgetting yourself, depriving the world of your unique gifts, or staying small.
This burnt out, fed-up position, was priming me for a new beginning. I was so close to discovering my path, my calling, my niche, and I had no idea.
I imprisoned myself with my own death sentence: Death by Perfectionism. It started young and has stayed with me for decades.
You have to figure out what you want. And sometimes that is gained by learning what you don’t want. That is part of the lesson of the bullies: they show you the behaviors, interactions, and thought patterns that you don’t want. Once you know what you want, write it down. Having a tangible list of guidelines of your own helps reinforce it in your mind.
My scarcity mindset, at the time, was telling me that I might not be able to get another good-paying job like this and I allowed all of this to happen even with knowing I had a toddler and a husband constantly waiting for me to finish up so I could be with them fully.
