“Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
Abundance is a popular topic within the self-help/self-improvement field. You may have, long ago, started your journey with learning about the “Law of Attraction” and how others were utilizing the powers of the Universe to have MORE in their lives.
Yet, to me, abundance isn’t about acquiring more stuff – although more stuff can be a part of it.
No, abundance to me is a direct correlation to your relationship with Self – and you knowing that you’re worthy. Period.
True abundance is about knowing that you’re already enough without having to do anything to prove it. Being able to simply accept and claim your worth without having to pay a due, or make a huge sacrifice in order to do so.
As I wrote about here, your self-worth isn’t the same thing as your self-esteem. And abundance is about self-worth.
You know that you can do stuff, acquire more stuff, and achieve things – and in order to do so, you may have had to make a huge sacrifice or dislike what you did in order to have and experience MORE.
But knowing that you’re worthy of abundance without the sacrifice, the pain, and the drudgery – well, that’s the life lesson we’re all here to learn.
