I found it very fitting that my box from Passion and Growth this month was based on Abundance. Abundance has always been something that I feel like most people strive for. They want to make enough money to take care of themselves and their children one day. Have something to retire one and finally enjoy their life.
There is a trick to abundance though, although I could be wrong, but I believe it revolves around mindset too. For the past, 15 years or so, I have worked two jobs. There was a lapse for a couple of months here and there, but for the most part, since my adult working career, it has been two jobs. Yet, no matter how much I worked, I wasn’t getting ahead. I made bad financial decisions, spent money I didn’t have, and the whole time kept wondering when I was going to catch a break.
Here is the funny thing, when you keep talking about how “stuck” you are, that is exactly where you are going to stay. While doing some major work on myself this last year, gratitude often came into the picture. Instead of being upset with where I was in life, I needed to look back to see how far I have come. Instead of wondering, when I was going to catch my break, or get my own place, or pay off those credit cards, I switched my mindset.
I started thinking about how grateful I am to have a place to stay, how, I may not be debt free but I sure did get that card paid off. Being grateful for the 26 cents raises and the quarterly bonuses. Being extra grateful for the online boutique orders that started coming in again. It is all about switching your mindset.
Nothing is ever going to be perfect and I am sure we will always want more, most humans do. Just be sure to take a moment and realize how much you already have.
Positive thoughts around money turn into money flowing to you. I can’t wait to read this months book, and I will be sure to share all the deets.
Share some love, we could all use a little more love.
