It is Never Too Late To Make Things Right!

We have all gone through painful and devastating experiences; ;loss of a job, a loved on, ended relationship, financial issues, etc. We all have-all of us-from Donald Trump to someone’s grandmother.

And……you can get over it, and you can move on from here and make things right-you can!

If you have wronged someone, make it right-don’t delay, and do not allow fear and/or pride to keep you from facing your responsibilities to the people, places or things that you owe an amends to.

Not taking care of your business can land you in jail-that parking or speeding ticket you are ignoring is going to cost you more than you suspect. The credit card you are ignoring is ruining your credit. The car payments you are not making will result in your car being taken away. Your rent not being paid will result in you not having a home.

Absolutely nothing-not Christmas, Hanukkah, birthday, or what have you is worth the price you are paying right now. The people in your life, your family, will respect you a lot more if you take it easy this holiday season rather than going into lavish amounts of debt to please them. In reality, you are pleasing your ego’s idea of who you are-this is not based in reality-this is fear.

You have the choice in every moment to stop the spiral of financial or emotional debt you have created and set things right. Will it be hard for a while? Yea, it will hurt-a lot! And, you will be reversing an unconscious nightmare that you created one day when you let your ego talk you into a lie.

Stop spending what you don’t have; stop lying to the people that care about you just to impress them; stop kidding yourself into believing that you are different than you are-who and what you are is enough-you don’t need the big show!

Affirmation: The best holiday gift I can give myself and my loved ones is authentic and real. I can be 100% myself without the expensive bells and whistles
