I have realized that many people are operating from a belief that there is not enough, there is not enough money, not enough time, not enough resources. But the truth is, we live in a time when we have more of everything than we have ever had before. I believe this feeling of lack arises because we fail to appreciate all that we have. If you have a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in and a refrigerator in your home then be grateful because you are better off than 75% of the world’s population.
Maybe we can start our days with conscious awareness, valuing the abundance that we all share in, especially in this Lucky Country that we call Australia. We can start by waking up and instead of telling ourselves “I don’t have enough”, we can slow down and create a time of deeper connection with those we love. Instead of worrying throughout the day that we don’t have enough money or resources, we can look around and start appreciating all the beautiful things that we do have.
Wouldn’t it be good to start seeing a future full of abundance, full of joy, full of love? We have more than enough time, resources and ability to move from a mental place of lack to a place of appreciation and abundance for our beautiful country, a place of values and strength that has helped mould our Australian culture into being much more fortunate than many others.
