Planting the seed of abundance
I had the most fascinating discussion with my mom about
#abundance that I wanted to share with you.
My mom and her family were born in Romania,
and moved to this country in the 60s.
When she was a little girl they left Romania, they were allowed
to take with them 1 suitcase each. That’s it.
Can you imagine immigrating to a new country when all
you have is what you take with you on a weekend getaway?
No money, just some clothes and pots… It’s crazy.
Yet they managed. They found jobs and they were fine.
My mom told me that she never felt lack in her entire life,
she was always grateful for the little that she did have.
1 suitcase, some clothes, some pots, a roof over her head.
Years went by and she met my dad.
He had just about nothing too 🙂
Together they worked for a few years and finally bought
a tiny teeny apartment in a bad part of town.
That’s where I grew up.
We loved that place!
It was cozy, fun and we were together!
This was in the early 80s.
I remember a black and white TV with one channel that I used to “fix” with a kick! LOL
We always felt so fortunate and abundant with the little we did have.
That was the seed of abundance.
You see, the FEELING of abundance brings more abundance.
The seed of abundance is having something, anything at all, and appreciating it deeply.
My parents realized the place was too small after my brother was born, years later,
and we couldn‘t open the closet doors anymore, it was so tight!
So we moved to a bigger place.
Slowly over the years we have become more and more successful.
The feeling remains the same.
We are grateful for what we have, and we feel amazingly abundant with everything.
That is the key.
Planting the seed of abundance will create and attract more of it,
and it will grow and grow.
Abundance breeds more abundance.
Be happy and grateful for what you have,
just for the sake of being happy and grateful.
Don’t take score too soon, or keep your eye on the stop watch:
“When will it come? when will I have it?”
That will not help.
Plant the seed of abundance now and more will come in time.
