This is a poem about the (sometimes) perplexing relationship that I have with money. It's a relationship that probably deserves a little more effort now and again, and I'm starting with some positive talk...I hope it might resonate with some of you too?
No more dirty-money talk
I will speak nicely of my money from now on
I will treat it with respect,
Let it join the family and my business.
I will give my money freely
I will not cramp my money’s style
I will let money take me adventuring…
It will introduce us to new people and places.
I will be a good host to my money
It will bring its money friends home to stay.
No more negatives, only positives from now on
Between money and me.
Black, red, green, gold, silver or plastic
I have no care about what colour or form my money takes
And wherever it goes,
Money and I are on much better terms from now on.
If you're spending a lot of your day in bare feet, then chances are you have found the kind of balance that Hook & Arrow writer Alison Smith has found in life.
