todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
I woke up early this morning after about 4 hours sleep and could not get back to sleep. So I read blogs, facebook and browsed eBay. At 5am, I'll go to the gym and do 45 minutes of cardio, then go to my 6:30am AA meeting. I have AA meetings at 10am and 12:15pm as well. Then lunch with the guys and then will pick up my Buick which has been in the shop getting some interior restoration work done. By late afternoon, I think I will have had -- enough.
I didn't write this, but I sure agree with it ...
The only difference between needing more and having enough is your attitude. At any time, in any circumstance, you always have the option of deciding that you are enough, and that you already have enough for the moment you're in.
Always longing for more will eventually wear you down into a painful, frustrating and overwhelming sense of disillusionment. Having enough, on the other hand, puts you into a peaceful, positive and productive state of mind.
Just imagine how completely satisfying it would be to suddenly have everything you need. You can know that satisfaction right now, in this very moment, just by allowing yourself to have enough.
It costs you nothing to decide that you have enough. For having enough does not preclude you from creating more abundance in your life.
In fact, having enough sets your creativity free and allows your effectiveness to soar to new heights. When you get away from the stifling mindset of lack and limitation, truly magnificent things will happen.
By having enough, your struggles disappear and are replaced with countless opportunities for real joy. See right now that you have enough, and delight in the warm and genuine richness it brings.
Don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.
