This last week, I've been reflecting and it's high time for my personal and family money refresh. This is something that began about twelve years ago, and I don't think I've ever shared it with you. In today's love letter, I'm going to share when to do a money refresh, what that might look like for you, and the most important question to ask yourself when doing a money refresh.
Even writing that makes me giggle because, of course life gets hectic. And when life gets hectic in my corner of the world, my money practices definitely slip or, circumstances dictate that my money practices require a refresh.
Case in point. Over the last eighteen years, my family and I have moved twelve times. Every time we move, there is a change in expenses and often income. Not only that but moves are filled with expenses that are unexpected. Other times that our money awareness can wane are during illnesses or travel or periods of grief.
When life begins to settle in the aftermath of upheavals big and small, it's an opportunity to do a money refresh.
At least twice a year, and after every move, we've made for the last twelve years, I do what I refer to as a money refresh.
A money refresh is setting aside time to reconnect with your money, to freshen up your systems and get clear on where you stand, and finally, to consider what is working and what isn't working so you can course correct.
It's important to presence that a money refresh is not an opportunity to berate yourself. You are invited to approach a money refresh with curiosity and compassion, with the intention of reestablishing clarity with who you want to be with money from this moment forward.
So let's you and I agree, right now - should you decide a money refresh is in your future, please treat yourself and your money with curiosity and compassion.
If you already have healthy money practices, a refresh can help you hone in on how you can move forward with more intentionality. However, most of us have some level of struggle with money. A refresh can show you the path to creating a healthier relationship with your money, yes, but a refresh can also illuminate the soft places where you may have some wounding to tend. So please go gently with yourself in the money refresh.
