Intentionally living from your heart comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.
When it comes to your money, intentionally spending, saving and investing should also be from your heart. That means to be congruent with who you are and how you intend to live authentically. Sounds simple, but for many it’s not so easy.
You have to know your true self … your true nature ... the essence of who you are. When you know this, be sure you are living your fullest life in alignment with that; including how you are investing your money.
