One year when our family hosted Thanksgiving, a guest brought me a gift. It’s a small, shallow bowl with fall leaves painted on it. Written inside the bowl is the word Plenty. I don’t collect much holiday decor, but this little bowl is a keeper. It’s stored safely in a box until autumn arrives and then it returns to a place of honor in our home. I usually fill it with candy corn and smile every time I see it.
The irony of a bowl with the word ‘Plenty’ written where it can only be seen when the bowl is empty, is not lost on me.
The message is powerful.
I often struggle with maintaining a mindset of abundance. Though I always have enough, I repeatedly encounter feelings of lack. I am aware that this is the result of many factors...societal, personal and financial.
Logically and intellectually, I know that I really want for nothing, yet the thoughts remain. The feeling of abundance usually returns after I've pep talked myself out of the 'lacking' mentality. A little dose of gratitude turns me around pretty quickly. In addition, I've seen the Law of Attraction work its magic in this area of my life.
When I operate from a place of abundance...I receive more.
When I operate from a place of lack...I create more lacking.
Seems fairly simple which thoughts I should be cultivating:-)
Plenty is a beautiful word. When I see it, I am calmed. It means there’s enough.
Not too much or too little, but just the right amount.
This week, I’m going to retrieve my little bowl from it’s storage spot. I will place it where I can see it many times a day. With each passing, I will remind myself of it’s simple message and I will give thanks.
I have plenty.
Plenty of time
Plenty of good health
Plenty of love
Plenty of money
Plenty of everything I could possibly need. There is enough.
Thank you for reading.
