You Already Have Abundance

abundance - of snow - elgin, il

Do you want to abandon snow?

You have a goal for the way things should be in your life.  Perhaps financial.  Unless you believe you already have financial abundance, you will never have it.  Because the truth of the matter is, you are already being taken care of very well.  How do I know? Somehow you have internet access so that you can read this.

Our problem often is, we want things we think are beyond our reach. Things that money can buy, more money than we have available today.  So how do we get the money or things we want? The first step in the process is being grateful for what we already have.

Be Grateful For Your Current Abundance

Take a look around you.  Are you able to eat, shelter, and clothe yourself?  Be grateful for all that you have!  Detail the things you have that you are grateful for and put them onto paper.  Thank God for all you have.  Feel the joy of knowing you have plenty of abundance right now.  Of course you want more, we all do, but how are you ever going to be satisfied with things if you cannot be happy with what you have now?

Forgiveness And Healing

forgiveness and healingI am not a doctor.  Nor am I a priest or a minister.  But I do know that people sometimes have a hard time forgiving themselves.  That is really the first person you must forgive.  If you cannot forgive yourself, take your case to God and ask for His forgiveness.  Ultimately you must get beyond the pain you are inflicting on yourself by forgiving yourself.  Without personal forgiveness and healing it is hard to achieve success.

Forgive Others Privately

The next person or persons you must forgive is anybody who has done harm to you.  This does not mean that you tell the person you forgive them unless they are asking for it, you just need to forgive them privately, to yourself, and let it go if possible.  Similarly to not forgiving yourself, not forgiving others does you more harm than you imagine.  Go through the process of forgiving others.  If God can forgive, why can’t you?

As always, I like to write about things I have problems with myself.  Quieting my mind so I can focus is one of them.  But I know some things that work for me and perhaps they will work for you too.

Stop and Stare

Often busy work gets overwhelming, especially if it is not productive busy work.  Reading email, checking out social media, surfing the web, or interrupting myself with a random thought that leads to more busy work.  The best thing to do when you need to regain your focus is to stop and do nothing.  I usually stare at my computer until I can regain my composure.

Need To Change Your Prescription?

Sometimes when we think focus we think about our eyes.  How when our eyeglasses or contacts start to age how we can see things fuzzy.  Then it is time to visit the eye doctor to update our eye glass prescription so that things appear to be in focus.

Similarly, our mind can blur and think about a hundred things at once.  We can try to start on one think only to be distracted by another, often finishing neither.  Somehow we need to find a way to tackle a task, preferably our most important one, before we move on to the next.
