You know, those little or big things that we are gifted with like new clients booking in, getting a free coffee, finding exactly what you need on sale, all those gorgeous things that feel good and abundant and lucky and blessed.
In the past, when something good happened to me, there was a part of me that was waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Know that feeling?
“Hello, something wonderful just happened to me! How great, how amazing. Oh oh! Better get ready for whatever it is that is NOW going to go spectacularly WRONG!”
In the past, I had a belief that good things just didn’t happen to me.
I was never in the right place at the right time, overlooked, unlucky, didn’t even dare to dream or want anything much at all.
Why risk being disappointed?
So when something wonderful happened to me, it felt totally random.
So rather than glory in the goodness and the happiness of the event, whatever it happened to be, I allowed myself to enjoy it for a little while, but then cast a very suspicious eye in the direction of fate, wanting to be prepared for when my life would return to it’s normal and usually negative way of being.
Rather than count my blessings, I counted all the things I DIDN’T HAVE and probably would NEVER have. After all, my motto then was: “expect the worst and hope to be pleasantly surprised.”
I am SO glad those days are gone!
When something good happens now here is what I do:
I say “Thank You”.
I open my arms wide to the sky and I say to the Universe:
GIVE ME MORE!
More JUICY, WONDERFUL, HAPPY GOODNESS!
Thank you and please, GIVE ME MORE!
When I started doing this, when I shifted my focus, when I appreciated and acknowledged what I got and asked for more, something very strange happened.
I got it.
I changed my focus to what I HAVE now, to building my capacity for joy and gratitude and abundance and trust.
Trust that what I need I will receive.
Trust that I do DESERVE good things.
I changed my concept of myself from “unlucky” to LUCKY and BLESSED and HAPPY.
So far, so good!
So, what is YOUR current motto in life?
Do you prepare for the worst or expect the best or are you somewhere in between?
How would your life change if you dared to ask for more? More of the good stuff!
