“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ~Buddha

Sunday afternoon at Wholefoods, after my first night out in the US ever (crazy, right?!) and with a big hangover (first one in ages), I had an awesome conversation with a dear friend of mine. I had just had two fruit bowls, a large tea and donuts and was craving some sushi when it hit me - the guilt trip.

I felt bad for eating something I really wanted, for spending my hard earned money on treats just for myself. 

My friend was like - "That's just how it is, I am the same way, it's normal." 

Me - "No, it's not and we need to STOP feeling bad for treating ourselves to good things. We work hard, so we have the right to spend money on things we like without feeling bad!"

The funny thing is, I love buying things for other people, I never feel bad doing that. So what is this? Where is this coming from? Is it how we were raised (don't be selfish, you have to share etc) or we born that way? 

I don't think so. I think it is something we were taught and we can re-learn to be good to ourselves. And that doesn't mean start spending more money than we have because that is the other extreme, I mean to have a healthy relationship with money. After all  you are the most important person in your life because without you, well, you wouldn't be here (of course you wouldn't be here without your parents, but you know what I mean)

I have read many things about making friends with money but I know one thing for sure, if you give you receive. If you let go you can take it in. Easier said than done. It takes time, practice and lots of love!

Here is a little quote for you to remind you how amazing you are:

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
