Think about this scenario for a moment…every month your bills are due, and every month you’re worried about not having enough money to pay them. In your mind there’s constant worry. Every time you buy something (lunch, gas, or a cup of coffee) there’s anxiety as you hand over the money. You’re in a constant state of feeling lack. This feels horrible, right?
Now, think about this…every month your bills are due and every time you write a check, pay online, or use your debit card you feel gratitude for having the money to spend. You reflect back on what you’re paying for and have great appreciation for whatever it is (how great is it to have electricity, food, & water?). You know there’s always a flow of money coming in and money going out. You have a feeling of abundance and you know deep within that you’ll always have whatever it is you need at that moment. This feels good, right?
You can always choose to feel good. It takes no more energy to feel the second scenario as it does to feel the first one. In fact, I would think the first scenario would take a lot more energy, and it’s such a draining energy at that. The second scenario may take more discipline, but I would way rather be disciplined than have that negative, stressful, draining energy.
I think back to my younger years right after high school (sounds funny for me to say that as I still think of myself as young!). I had a roommate who would always worry about how we were going to pay rent. She had a hard time sleeping, and I know now it was because she worried so much! Sometimes she would ask me if I’m worried about it and my answer to her was always no. This would freak her out! How could I not be worried?? One day I turned to her and asked her if we’ve ever gone without paying our rent. Her answer was “no”. I told her this is why I’m not worried. We’ve never gone without paying our rent. We always ended up getting the money (we both waited tables at the time). I remember telling her that I had never gone without, so I just wasn’t worried. I knew I would get the money somehow. I didn’t always know how I was going to have enough, but I always did and that’s all that mattered.
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE YOUR LIFE HOWEVER YOU WANT IT! When we begin to understand that it’s all in our mind, we then realize we can live our life however we want. We can live in stress, worry & anxiety or we can live in freedom from those things.
My husband always tells me “it’s sunny and 70 in Katland”! He jokes with me about it, but I seriously take it as a great compliment (thanks, Honey!). It’s your choice. Do you want to live where it’s sunny & 70, or dreary & 48? Do you want to live in constant fear of lack or in continual abundance?
There’s really nothing to worry about! If you can keep your eye on what you want, if you can keep your mind in the light rather than the darkness, and truly believe that all is good then I promise you you’ll always have what you need (if not more)!
It’s all just a perspective! You choose how you want to perceive something. I’m choosing sunny & 70!!
