Abundance, Appreciation & Gratitude


“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
― Anthony Robbins


In the past when I’ve heard the word abundance, I thought of it as being an embarrassment of riches. As much money as I might want to have, as much great tasting healthy food as I might want to eat and all my needs taken care of. In that I was at least half right. It does mean having as much as is needed or wanted yet its amazing how much the scale slides down. If I can learn to appreciate and savour a walk in the evenings with my dogs or a conversation with either an old friend or someone new and interesting than the definition of an abundant amount of entertainment changes quite quickly. If I stay active and put effort into enjoying my life (even the less than fun parts) then I am less likely to look to food to fill my time or elevate my mood and so the amount of food needed to have abundance changes. If I am grateful for everything that comes my way in life then the chances of me slowing down long enough to experience it increases and I realize that with relatively little, I can be abundantly satisfied

Quote of the Day – March 25 2013

“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”
― Anthony Robbins


I read this and I just want to say YES. How often in my life have I second guessed myself or stopped myself from doing something because I was worried either about what someone else might think or that I would not do it correctly? How many experiences have I avoided not because I did not want to experience them but out of fear or avoidance.  Honestly tho, I’ve let myself do a lot and I’ve made huge mistakes and can look at them now and laugh from the other side.

I can guarantee that not only myself but everyone reading this will make several mistakes between now and when we go on. That’s awesome. Mistakes are there so that we can plumb the depths of our ignorance and learn. They are necessary parts of our journey and we should rejoice in them. They may suck at the time particularly the ones where we or others who we care about get hurt but in the mutual healing there is much that can be learned. These mistakes are part of the human journey and wow am I grateful for that.

I’m going to leave off with two questions tonight that I’d love to hear answers from. What inspires you? What feeds you and allows you to go further faster? What is one thing you would like to try that you haven’t yet?
Blessings, G
