Day 1/100 of #100Daysoflovingmoney
Oh Good Gravy--nothing rattles me more than tipping !!
This is me today throwing my tip money in --I was treated to a cup of coffee and to get a refill they requested a $1.00. No big deal--well you would think not but it felt like tipping. This brought to my attention loud and clear how much stress I have ANYTIME I am presented with a moment to tip! So I made myself pay $2.00. But there was no joy in that tip. I knew this was a perfect place to start to shift my relationship with my new buddy money !

And yet this is STILL an area of discomfort for me. There are countless moments where we are confronted with the opportunity to offer a tip and each and every time it is a source of frustration.
Initially I understand that this is a Lack mentality and a Fear of There Not Being Enough--but knowing that logically does not seem to change the mental or visceral experience I have when this comes up.
I am choosing to explore this area with an open mind and an open heart to see what is REALLY at the root of this tipping business for me. I have a feeling that right here --when I really get down to the nitty gritty of it--there will be some really great insight for me !
So until that awareness comes my way --I am going to take each opportunity to tip and explore that with more love and intention to understand the feelings behind it.
Honestly just thinking about that --it makes me a little excited for my next opportunity to tip. I love a good challenge !
