So… I’m in the middle of writing a ridiculously long post reviewing a book by Charles Fillmore. What does this have to do with Chanel you may ask? Well, details will follow in the review, but there was a chapter in the book that reinforced something I’ve been thinking about lately.
Reading the chapter made me go out and HAPPILY spend money. It focuses on what it calls a “miserly mind”: a mind that “hoards” money out of fear. I hate to admit it, but the chapter really hit a nerve with me. I have a nice “separate” savings account, but the money is in there based on a level of fear. Fear that I’ll end up alone and a struggling single mother. REALLY? Don’t get me wrong, I know sh** happens to folks everyday, but I believe that a life lived in fear is a life not lived. Because if I truly believe in a prosperous mindset, then even in the unlikely event that I would end up as a single mother, I would simply not struggle. My supply is endless – I truly believe that.
So… as a result I decided to let loose a little, in faith that the universe will always provide. As it has always provided! That I happened to settle on Chanel is inconsequential – it could have been a pair of shoes. I need those. This was just pure indulgence – and that’s ok, I have more than enough. I also gave some to charity too, just in case you were wondering.
I have had my eye on this wallet for a few years and I’ve unfortunately watched the price rise:( But I am very happy to have purchased it, and cannot wait to use it. So… without further ado…. A little Chanel.
