I see the connection between #27 & #28 on my love list. Showing up empowered enough to pursue work in the world that is valued and valuable and making smart decisions about financial resources is absolutely connected. Money is just energy, flowing toward what people value. Money earned can flow out just as easily as it flows in, and I desired a partner who would align how money is used with shared goals and aspirations. Part of making smart decisions about money is being disciplined about spending or investing patterns that have proven faulty in the past—honoring yourself and your partner by not repeating undisciplined decisions, withholding judgment at the same time.We learn from experience, and it’s our developed wisdom that supports us in saying, “I am willing to pay attention to what my experiences teach me and use what I now know to serve me.”
