Be grateful for what you have AND what you DON’T have – Sounds CRAZY doesn’t it! Why be grateful for something that hasn’t happened yet? Or for something you haven’t received yet?
Most of us are taught to be grateful for what we have and many of us know how powerful it is to be grateful/to be appreciative. It literally changes our mood in an instant. However, what about the things or situations that you want, that haven’t happened yet?
If you are not practicing being grateful for what you don’t have, then you are trapped in LACK and what you want will not come to you anytime soon (you’ll just get more lack).
Don’t get trapped in WANTING – wanting is a lack trap!
So lets get grateful. Here are my 3 reasons to be grateful for what you don’t have:
1- It makes you trust yourself and your own situation.
Know that it’s coming – remember my favourite quote “Committed attention attracts supply”. Committed attention to your creativity attracts more of it. You create your own life. Everything you want can be yours, you just gotta get out of the way! Quiet the mind – do some colouring!
2- Puts you slap bang in the present moment.
It empowers you, with no worries and no fear about if this will happen or that will happen (side note- you can’t irradicate fear, so dance with the fear instead). Know that things/situations that you want are coming, but deal with them from the NOW. “Enjoy before intergration?’ commented An9el on Periscope, which reminded me of the quote— “Do what you are inspired to do first and everything else later”. Get that good ‘flow’ first and use the good flow to do the things you’re not keen on doing.
3- It brings out your Resourceful side.
On a practical note, makes you prepared — find multiple solutions to things/situations. (“Be proactive not reactive” commented @prismtrail on Periscope). Honour yourself as an Artist. Creative and making things happen in the best way for you! Make life happen FOR you and not to you. “You will have everything life wants you to have” echoed @iammax on Periscope. Just do what you want to do in baby steps and congratulate yourself along the way.
