Money may come from making practical choices. It might be from something as simple as selling an unwanted item, or finally getting a refund on something you didn't really need.
You're beginning to notice that one or two of your old habits are no longer beneficial and need to be replaced by newer, more positive habits. It takes eight repetitions to learn a new habit, but it also takes twenty-eight repetitions to unlearn an old habit and deprogram old patterns. Twenty-eight days isn't a long time; give yourself a month to break that old habit. It won't be easy, and it will require a lot of patience, but you can make a successful change one day at a time.
Don't hesitate to keep a list of work that you have completed. It's not egoistical, it's smart.
