Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 129-May 9 “I forgive myself for having believed for so long that I was never good enough to have, get, be what I wanted.”—Ceanne DeRohan From the moment of birth, our programming starts.
