This quote hit home. It’s not about money. It’s about choosing to live a life that feels abundant with friends, incredible experiences & a full, overflowing sense of joy & gratitude. Being miserly with life is limiting & constricted. It’s the difference between closing yourself off with crossed arms or throwing your arms wide in welcome. Try both & see how you feel.
Maybe it’s all the traveling I’ve been doing lately. Possibly it’s my freshly cleaned house. Definitely it’s all the amazing friendship and support I have in my life. And it could be because it’s a spring Sunday.
Whatever the reason, I’m centered, optimistic and inspired. Lucky to be healthy and happy and zipping around this planet. Feeling flush with appreciation for all the good stuff in my world, it’s a fresh season and I love that.
There’s even a strange alchemy happening with “bad stuff”. For example, I missed out on an opportunity I thought I really wanted. Within a couple days, I was startled to realize that not getting it was a relief. It only had short term advantages and could have unnecessarily detoured me from my dearest, most treasured goal. It’s like the universe played 3 card monte with me. Instead of leaving me high & dry, though, it left me with renewed appreciation and focus on what matters most to me. High five for that!
Feeling like I’m at the start of a fantastic new adventure and I’m liking it. Wishing the same for you!
Feeling as happy as this Fortune Cat!
Seeing life through fresh eyes is an appealing part of traveling. We all need fresh specs sometimes. Physically leaving our routine and home somehow shakes us up. Shuffles the deck. And, suddenly, we’re somewhere new and paying attention. Truly seeing. Listening. Hearing what people say instead of assuming. At least for me…I’m more tuned-in, more attentive when traveling. Right or wrong, it’s the case. And so, I’ll continue to travel to refresh my view.
