So I’ve been thinking a lot about scarcity mentality. You know it? It’s the mindset that there is a limited amount of money, praise, happiness out there in the universe. And consider me one of the lucky ones, bc my brain defaults to a lack of all of the above and then some. Thx, childhood programming! 🏻
If I want to be able to tell Mila anything is possible, then I need to believe that’s the case, so needless to say my mind could use a reset. Here’s what I’ll be working on this week to keep me operating from a place of abundance:
1. Be an observer of my thoughts. Negative thoughts are inevitable, but I decide where I let them go and how long I let them stick around. I’m the boss of this monkey mind.
2. Choose expansion over envy. So-and-So’s giant beautiful home shows me what is possible, not what I don’t have. (Although I do have a beautiful home, but you get the point).
3. Continue practicing gratitude. I do my best, uninterrupted thinking in the shower, so while I’m in there I list some of the things for which I’m grateful (my health + clarity, a warm house, the sweetest girl in the world, Mike, etc.) Doing this day after day has made me damn near a glass-half-full type - so much so that even on the days I don’t shower it’s ingrained in me to find the silver linings. Note: it’s key to name NEW items to avoid reciting the same ones and therein losing the magic.
4. Exercise generosity. Yesterday I gave $5 to a homeless man, which isn’t much in the scheme, but it truly made me feel great. I percent attribute these feelings to giving what I was able to give in the moment - not out of strategically seeking out ways to shift my financial vibrations. ***Cont in comments*** - 2 hours ago
