Hey y'all fellow single mamas! Today, let's dive into a powerful topic that can transform our financial lives: cultivating an abundant mindset. As single moms, it's easy to get caught up in scarcity thinking, but by shifting our perspective to one of abundance, we can unlock the path to true financial freedom. In this blog post, I'll share empowering insights to help you embrace abundance and create a mindset that attracts wealth.

Banishing the “Broke Mama” Mindset

Our thoughts shape our reality, so let’s kick things off by bidding farewell to the “broke mama” mindset. You know, that nagging voice in your head that tells you financial freedom is an unattainable dream and you will never reach that level of freedom. Well, it’s time to give that voice a swift kick in the ass and let her know she is no longer welcome here!  Instead, embrace abundance in all aspects of your life, including your finances. Think “wealthy mama in the making”, if you will. Start by acknowledging that there is enough wealth and opportunity for everyone, including you. Affirm to yourself daily, "I am deserving of financial abundance." Visualize yourself enjoying a life of financial freedom, feeling the joy and security it brings. By focusing on abundance rather than scarcity, you'll open the door to new possibilities and attract positive financial outcomes.

Gratitude: Sprinkle That Shit Like Confetti

Girl, let's talk about gratitude–it's the secret sauce that makes your money stash shine like glitter! Every day, take a moment to count your financial blessings, no matter how small they may seem. Whether it's celebrating that saved dollar or the extra coin you discovered in your couch cushions, give thanks, honey! Gratitude is like a memo to the universe, signaling that you're open and ready for even more cash flow. So grab your gratitude journal, sprinkle it with glittery vibes, and let the universe know you're grateful AF for the financial abundance that's about to hit your bank account!

Boss Bitch Vibes: Embracing Your Inner Baddie 

Picture this, mama: as you strut down the street, messy bun and bag full of snacks, heads turn left and right, captivated by your undeniable presence. Why, you ask? Because you exude the aura of a confident, successful woman, embracing your inner boss babe with grace and maturity. Empower yourself by diving deep into the realms of personal finance, investments, and the art of money management. Surround yourself with a circle of accomplished, financially savvy friends who inspire and uplift you to new heights.You become like the people you surround yourself with, so CHOOSE QUALITY!  Embrace the unshakable belief that you are a magnet for prosperity, and financial triumph is your rightful destiny. Embrace your unwavering confidence, brush off any lingering doubts, and get ready to make it rain, my bitch! You are a badass and you WILL accomplish your financial goals! Your path to financial greatness awaits, and you are poised to conquer it like the sophisticated, boss babe you truly are!

Say Buh-Bye, Limiting Beliefs!

It's time to kick those limiting beliefs to the curb, sister! Say adios to thoughts  like "money doesn't grow on trees", "I'm destined for a life of financial struggle”, “I can’t afford that.” Replace those suckers with bold, sassy affirmations that scream, "I attract abundance in every aspect of life!" or “Money always flows to me!” I know when you are struggling to make ends meet and provide for your family, it’s extremely hard to keep a positive mindset. Trust me when I say I have held back tears all day in front of my daughter only to let it all out when I finally got to shower once she was asleep. Mommin ain’t easy and it’s even harder doing it on your own! Take it from me, there is ALWAYS a better day.  Let go of fear, embrace your worthiness, and let your dreams take flight. Trust me, mama, when you ditch those limiting beliefs, you'll discover a whole new world of financial freedom!

Single Mom Takeover: Strutting Toward Financial Empowerment

You, my badass single mom, are on a mission, and it's time to showcase your confident stride and take charge of your financial situation! Craft a financial game plan that gets you excited, tailored to your unique goals and aspirations. Set BOLD yet attainable targets and conquer them with the unwavering confidence that defines you. Seek out lucrative opportunities, excel in your career, and let those dollars flow like a celebration in full swing. Remember, it's not just about talking the talk; it's about walking the walk. Start embracing the financially savvy, goal demolishing baddie you are!

I get it, this topic seems a little “woo woo”, but having the right mindset is crucial to reaching any goal you set for yourself in life. Your mindset can literally change your reality. Being a single mama is a daunting task. All of the responsibilities of the household fall on your shoulders. As the sole provider for my daughter, I understand this feeling all too well. As moms, we want the best possible life for our babies, and without a doubt, we can give them just that. You have to get honest with yourself and get to the bottom of what your current mindset around money is. Journal it out. Think back to the first money memory you have. What made you feel the way you do about money? How do you even feel? Get it all out on paper. You have to understand why your current mindset is the way it is in order to make changes. 

Women are conditioned to think we shouldn’t want money and it’s impolite to talk about finances. I say that’s bullshit. As a mom, it’s okay to want more in terms of money and finances. Financial freedom is something all moms should strive for. You can have it all! You don’t have to be dependent on a spouse or anyone else to be able to provide you and your babies with the life you desire and deserve. You can be a great mama and still want your own money in the bank! 

After you have gotten honest with yourself about your own money mindset, it’s time to start rewiring your brain. Remember, every day won’t be easy, and sometimes negative thoughts will creep in! That’s okay! Just slap that little voice into next week and redirect your thoughts! You are a bad bitch and you can and will change your life! You got this!
