When I got sober all my problems didn’t just stop, the act of quitting drinking was easier then dealing with all the emotions I buried deep. I legit had to start adulting and dealing. In my recovery I developed a little spending problem..oh my! Where there is one addiction, don’t be surprised if two more pop up.
For sure shopping became my way to feel better. Having a bad day, good day, emotional day I would shop!! It became the norm for the first two years of my recovery. Which now I am happy to have gone through it because I learned.
Fast Forward to the last year and a half, I have really been focusing on changing my relationship around with money and been working on Dave Ramsey, Baby steps. I’ve gotten myself out of some debt following these steps and have felt more in control of all my money and finances. I share this with you because you could be sitting there drowning in debt and have no clue of where to start.
The weeks episode of the Real Aligned Women Podcast we talk about FINANCIAL RECOVERY! Linda breaks it down, talking about the chaos of money, how money is energy and recognizing money triggers. She also suggests where to start if you are looking to take control of your own finances. I share more of my story about money, from a car repo to bankruptcy.
Hope you enjoy!
