Is Money Your Friend?
Ken Honda

“For those who have not had good experiences with money, I am sorry that life’s been unfair. I am sorry that things weren’t easy in the past. But I can assure you that doesn’t mean your future is fixed or that you can’t turn your life around or change your feelings toward money. Money can be bad, but it can also be good – very good. It can show up as welcoming and kind, especially if you start changing your energy towards it and treat it like a best friend!”
