Madonna had it right all those years ago when she sang “we live in a material world”. So many people are focused on chasing riches, wealth, bigger homes, better cars and other material items. They do this in the hope of happiness but often when they get there they realise they still have voids. Chasing material items does NOT equate to abundance and it certainly does not equate to happiness! Distracting, running, busying, acquiring. It’s great to grow and change ourselves but we do not need to change our external world to grow internally. Sometimes all these distractions are just another way to avoid what really needs addressing, it’s just bypassing. Sometimes we just need to be….
My way of being list:
An abundance of unconditional love– to love yourself and others in a non-attached and non-judgemental way.
An abundance of passion– to be passionate about your career. Your tribe. Your partner. Your life.
An abundance of gratitude– to be grateful for all that you have and all that you will receive. Even on the dark days, always find something you are grateful for.
An abundance of forgiveness– to forgive situations. Even the f*cking brutally painful ones. Forgive and set yourself free.
An abundance of creativity– to forever be creative in all your pursuits. A richness in your gifts to express yourself with bold, raw freedom.
An abundance of high vibing energy– an energy so high and magnetic that you attract such incredible blessings into your life. Let your vibe shift the whole frequency of the room when you walk in.
An abundance of grace– a being of elegance, thoughtfulness and honour.
An abundance of authenticity– to be unapologetically yourself. Speak your truth. Live your life without the fake-ness, without bullish*t. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
An abundance of kindness– to always be kind without expectation. To embody the generosity and care of a beautiful soul.
An abundance of humour– to laugh at yourself. To laugh with others. To find the lighthearted and funny side to life.
An abundance of purpose– to know why we are here. What you have to offer and give of yourself in the service of others.
An abundance of strength– without strength and resilience you cannot see your weaknesses. You need to be able to pick yourself off that f*cking shower floor when the water has turned cold and your skin has turned prune like.
An abundance of courage– to be brave enough to show your vulnerabilities. To admit you have wounds and dig deep to heal them. To stand in your power without requiring validation from anyone. To take your f*cking mask off.
An abundance of character– to be true to yourself regardless of how that looks to others. To walk away from what no longer serves you. To be the person you say that you are. To sincerely apologise when you make mistakes and hurt someone.
An abundance of intuition– to silence yourself and listen to the messages you are receiving. Be guided to realise that those gut feeling you have are usually right.
An abundance of faith- to have faith is to believe you are right where you need to be. To understand that everything happens for a reason and the lessons you have endured were what you needed to learn.
An abundance of lessons– if we are not to learn on our journey, how will we ever grow? How will we change into better versions of ourselves?
An abundance of compassion– to openly and honestly care for others. When you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. To be an empathetic human.
An abundance of excitement– excited to experience new things. New places. Meet new people. Excited to learn, to grow, to be challenged, to know the person you are today is only the current version of yourself and tomorrow’s version will be even better.
An abundance of respect– respect of yourself and a respect for others knowing they are on their own journey.
An abundance of peace- an inner peace and calm. A knowing that whatever comes next you will handle with the necessary skill, love and strength required.
