Why one old cliché might work for you

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. That’s one of those sayings from my childhood that sticks in my memory both because it was so trite and so true.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. If you’re reading my blog and just beginning to save your five dollar bills—or maybe you’ve done it steadfastly for many years—how about a variation on the old cliché.

Today is the first day of my $5 savings plan path to abundance. Let’s say it again. Today is the first day of my $5 savings plan to abundance. Easy, no? Just like the $5 savings plan is an easy way to save money, having a handy list of abundance affirmations is an easy way to keep your financial goals on track. I’m sure you can come up with a whole bunch of good ones on your own, but let me offer a handful to get you started.

I have enough.

I have all that I need.

I am grateful for all the gifts in my life.

My path to financial security is unfolding.

Abundance is mine in health, relationships, and money.

If you asked me what single thing has contributed most to my sense of financial well being and abundance over the past several years, it’s the clear message I think about whenever I think about money. It’s also what motivates me to save every five dollar bill that I get back as change in a cash transaction.

And yes, today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Yours in Fives,

Marie
