What was your 2020 through the lens of money?

  1. What can you celebrate this year with money?
  • What earnings are you most proud of?
  • Where have you been creative by saving money or being extra resourceful?
  • What has having money enabled you to do? (However small)
  • What positive mindset shifts have you observed?
  • What new habits have you started?
  • What systems do you now have in place, which you didn’t before?
  • Have you asked for more money than felt comfortable?
  • Have you asked for help with money, or negotiated on a price that felt too much?
  • Have you said no when things were not aligned — even though it meant turning down money?
  • What do you now know about your needs?
  • Are you now clearer on your boundaries, or had practise expressing them?
  • What have you survived?
  • What have you realised about what is important to you?
  • What is an unhelpful belief you have about money that you’d like to shift in 2021?
  • What is an attitude you’ve developed this year with money, that you’d like to continue?
  1. Go through your bank statements and send gratitude to everyone who has paid you and everyone you have been able to pay. Extend this gratitude to everyone who made these payments possible.
  2. Write a letter to money expressing your gratitude and celebrating any learnings from 2020 (if it feels good, you could also write money’s reply).
  3. Close your eyes and bring to mind ‘Money in 2020’’ — what emotions and sensations does it evoke in your body? What are the overall feelings present? You may want to draw, journal or move your body. Spend some time capturing this
  4. Add up all the money that you’ve earned this year and then really feel that amount in your body. You’ve earned that during a global pandemic!
  5. Write a poem or song about your journey with money this year.
