Hello and welcome to best life with Becca!
This weekly blog post is on having and being enough. A lot of us these days focus on our external possessions and what we own to dictate how we feel about ourselves. Maybe we’ve seen someone has gotten a new car, house or clothes recently that we haven’t been able get – this may make your mood low and make you feel a bit sh*t.
This blog is not about comparing ourselves to how we are with our belongings but actually being enough by just who we are as human individuals. We all bring something to the table and we are all here to make a difference and influence people’s lives (for the better in most cases).
So firstly, don’t go into scarcity mode of what you don’t have. Flip it around, what do you have? Do you have a roof over your head? Comfortable clothes and access to food & water? My guess is most of us do. These are basic things yes- but without them there would be no way we could survive or thrive without these. We can take it a layer deeper.
Thinking about what we do have as an individual – maybe you are a socialite who makes people feel happy 💛, maybe you are a strong person who will speak the truth even when it hurts 🧡, maybe you are a listening ear to those who need comfort 💙, but most of all you bring love to the table ❤️ that isn’t cheesy or soppy because deep down when we think about belongings we want to be a part of something. We should instead try to connect with ourselves and with others and we do this with a high conscious energy of love. Think of a time where you felt on top of the world. I bet your heart was racing, you had a huge smile on your face and love pouring out.
See it is all about perspective. So let’s not indulge ourselves in others peoples worlds that makes us bitter or jealous. Let’s focus on our wins and our triumphs and developing ourselves. With the intention of sharing and understanding of other peoples positions.
My commitment is to do what makes you happy and go with it. The experience will be more rewarding that the material prize at the end.
Stay strong and know that you can’t plant a seed, dig it up straight away and expect a flower. Time and patience is required but you’ll get there. I know it.
