I’ve thought a lot about this lately as I’ve stepped off the scale and begun to see my self with more compassion. I’m not exactly sure where I learned that my worth is what I weigh, how much I carry out in a day or how much money I have or don’t have in my bank account. I know that some of these messages I learned in childhood and others constantly bombard us on billboards, magazines, television, etc.
I’ve turned my focus these days to what I have instead of what I don’t. In thinking about wealth I realize I am abundant in relationships, freedom, time, creativity, health & wellness, etc. I don’t always recognize these things because my focus is often on money being the descriptor of abundance. Being self-employed and being a follower of the law of attraction is often tricky at times. The law of attraction teaches that what you focus on you create. It is easy to see what I am not creating in my life and then thinking there is something wrong with me or, that I’m not”doing it” right, or that I’m not being spiritual enough. I call bullsh@#t on that!
Today I am deciding that I have enough. I do enough. I am enough. And, that is enough.
