Day 76 


I have enough.

I am enough.

I see abundance, plenty and potential everywhere I look.

I appreciate what I have.

I appreciate all I am.

I express gratitude daily for all that I have and all that I am.

It’s so easy to be drawn in by the lure of lack and insufficiency, our media sources drown us daily with information about what we don’t have enough of  – things like health, style, beauty, security, financial freedom and excitement.  And media very generously offers the solutions to these same shortage problems – drugs, fashion trends, makeup and cosmetic surgery,  insurance and investment options and a slick sports car with a sexy passenger.  Those same media sources also try to convince us that what we do have isn’t good enough – think bigger house, fuller breasts, whiter teeth, greener lawns, more sexual vigor and fewer gray hairs.  The outside world is constantly selling us the idea that what we have and what we are is not enough.  No wonder our attention is constantly falling on what we believe is missing or in short supply!  The truth is that we already have and are so much more than we think.

To see what we have we need to shift our perspective from one of lack and shortage to one of abundance and flow.  That shift begins by recognizing how often we put our attention on what we want more of, less of or better. While some want is born of a desire for expansion, as in, “I want to someday take a trip to Spain,” most want has a very different energy, as in , “I want a more agreeable and loving partner.” (which translates to, “I don’t have a very agreeable and loving partner.”)  And it’s the want that comes from lack that keeps us in misery.  Once we recognize our patterns of wanting and from where they derive,  we can make a switch and start thinking instead about what we have.

By shifting from constant thoughts of “I want…” to  constant thoughts of “I have…” we begin to appreciate what we  already possess and experience and how perfectly it has served us.  Thoughts of “I have…” and the gratitude they provoke are the seeds for future abundance and plenty.  When we see that same partner with grateful “I have…” eyes, we start to notice wonderful traits previously hidden by our discontent and our attitude toward them changes.  Most amazingly, as our perspective changes from want to have, the things we have and appreciate begin to transform and become the things we always wanted.

Day 51


I choose a positive perspective no matter what my situation is.

If we see ourselves as victims of this world we cannot feel grateful for all that is right in our lives . If our focus is on what we perceive as lacking, we can not see all that we have. But when we come at life from the other side, seeing what we love and want and cherish and appreciate and learn from, we no longer see what we don’t want, don’t like, and don’t feel good about.  When our focus is on what is uplifting, we don’t see what brings us down.  When our hearts are feeling grateful for the plenty we do have, we aren’t giving attention to what we think is missing.   While in the midst of positive, limitless, hopeful thoughts, we are not having negative, limiting and doubting thoughts.  Having and maintaining a positive perspective changes everything because it changes everything.

Day 38


I choose strength.

I choose courage.

I choose to get up and go on.

I choose to be stronger than I was yesterday.

I choose to do more than survive life, I choose to thrive.

The road is bumpy, the challenges are weighing down, the clock is ticking, hope is slipping away… This is how it can feel sometimes.  Life makes it easy to choose suffering.  Life gives us ample opportunities to feel loss, lack, heartache and pain.  It can feel like being thrown under a train.  But these trains don’t destroy, they reinvent.  They force the prone to summon up the courage to get off the tracks and move on.   It happens to everyone.  And when we do choose to get up  we are stronger than we were before.  We are bolder than we knew we could be.  We are more determined than ever.   Life, in spite of the tragic, tedium and troubling, is not a play in smallness; it’s a constant show of greatness.  It is a constant revival, a never-ending play upon itself which inspires us to our own greatness, strength, and potential.   The train, the road, the clock, the heartache, the loss, the pain…they have never destroyed us, they’ve reinvented and transformed us into beings of great courage, inner strength, and conviction.   They’ve turned us into way showers.  They’ve given us power, authentic power, the kind of power that comes from having overcome adversity, better and greater for it.  They’ve given us a chance to say,  “I did it.”  They’ve made us more than just survivors of life’s hardships, they’ve taught us how to thrive in spite of them.
