I am one of those people who has finally stopped trying to fix other people.
[Although, if I am honest, sometimes I DO have reams of brain-paper ideas for someone else's improvement.]
I am one of those people who has been waiting to get to the place where I am okay with ME and NOT constantly focused on what is WRONG with me that I feel needs to BE fixed.
As I read through my Feedly of the past couple days this morning I came upon a couple of great posts by people I admire and both of them seemed to give me the seed for today's post.
What I realise Today that I may NOT have known to BE true for me BEfore Right Now is that I Have and AM Enough.
And yes, I know my word for 2013 was Enough, but this is something altogether else.
I no longer have WANTS and I am really clear that my NEEDS are pretty basic.
I might live in a World which has things [toys] that I think I might like HAVING, but I also live in a person who knows that HAVING only feeds the WANTER inside me.
I may wish I could "afford" to play and DO something, or several somethings, but I KNOW that I don't NEED those things to BE Happy Right Now.
While I am NOT someone who quotes Bible stuff, I know good words when I read them:
Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
As this new year continues unfolding itself, I am "fixing my thoughts" ON those things that are essential and meaningful to ME; NOT those things I want or canNOT afford to pay for Right Now, but on the What Is and especially on the what I may have overlooked in my fix-it mode.
I am extraordinarily rich in those resources that help me bend my brain in the right-for-me Right Now direction.
Many thanks to those who share their writing with those, like me, who are reading...
