I caught myself doing it again, just last week.
While I was walking down the street, one of my weird little money habits took over and I found myself crouched down in the middle of a very busy sidewalk in New York City.
After I broke from my trance, I stood up, smiled and kept walking with the bustling crowd.
What we say to ourselves in the privacy of our own minds matters. It drives our behavior, which drives our destiny.
While we may not feel or notice the impact of these small choices over a week or even a month, the cumulative effect of our daily thoughts and actions adds up to big results over time.
Especially around money.
No matter how much you have or don’t have, money is a topic that touches us all. My relationship with money has transformed over time, and it continues to.
Today, I want to share two of my weird little money habits that help me stay in a state of “enoughness”. Meaning, remembering that there’s more than enough to go around and I’m going to treat what I have in this moment with care and respect.

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel immensely grateful for my life.
After all, I was born to a middle-class family and have access to clean running water, shelter, food, and education.
In a world where nearly a billion people live in extreme poverty (less than $1.25 a day), I understand how extraordinarily blessed I am, as are many people I interact with.
That’s why I was particularly interested in tackling today’s question. Because it touches upon something that anyone with a heart and global perspective can relate to.
When so many others struggle, is it really OK to be happy and do meaningful work I love?

Over the weekend, I thought a lot about money.
I read a brave and eye-opening article in the NY Times from a self-confessed money addict, and had a few conversations with friends about the movie The Wolf of Wall Street.
I also did a lot of yoga and meditated on the subject — especially because I’ve started working on my next book, in which money (especially the making of it) plays a vital role.
As I’ve shared before on MarieTV, I feel blessed to have developed a healthy and even loving relationship with money. While that relationship is always evolving…
I’ve come to believe a healthy, respectful relationship with money helps us put it in its rightful place: it’s just one of the many resources we have to offer and share in this adventure called life.
I also don’t prescribe to a zero sum world-view based in scarcity.
Meaning, if you get more money (or love, attention, fill in the blank) — that I get less. Both science and spirituality show us that through collaboration, innovation, generosity and partnership — our collective resources can truly be infinite.
Without going too far down a philosophical rabbit hole, I’m so excited to share today’s MarieTV episode with you. So let me ask…

Today, I wanted to tackle a topic that most of us can relate to — especially during the holidays. Between travel, parties, gifts, and extra time with family…
It’s inevitable that at some point over the next few weeks, the hot topic of money will be front and center.
No surprise here, but how you think and feel about money may be very different than the people around you.
Everyone is their own person of course, but research has shown that we’re more affected by our environment than we think.
No where do we feel this more than with money.
So — are we royally screwed if our friends and family are stuck in scarcity?
Do we need to focus on changing them in addition to changing ourselves?

SUNNY Los Angeles!!!
For years, I’ve dreamed of escaping the frosty East Coast winters. And for the past two years, Josh and I have made that dream a reality.
I feel so blessed and grateful to be here in Cali right now!!
