This week I wanted to share with you my thoughts on "more". Growing up in a large "Brady Bunch" family, I always thought I wanted more. More space, more freedom, more alone time, defiantly more bathroom space.... etc. You get the point. I thought it should have been different than what actually happened.
If we stop to think about how what actually happened was a positive thing, you can stop to see how it was actually perfect just the way it happened! You know why? Because it's what happened! How I grew up was actually perfect for me! Nothing went wrong at all!
More space. We actually had a HUGE house for 10 kids! I just got to share it with my all of my siblings, my mom and dad and 2 cows in the back pasture. I shared my small room with my sister who is now my best friend. I did have half the room and I got to make it my own. I now live in 300 sq feet and love that I can make a small space my own easily. I had great practice!
More freedom. Looking back, I actually had a ton of freedom. Sometimes I abused that freedom and got caught and lost that freedom. How was this a good thing??? I learned the importance of consequences and taking responsibility for my choices! I learned if I wanted something, be responsible and I get to keep it!
More alone time. There was ALWAYS someone around making noise! 🤦♀️ I actually learned patience and tolerance. I learned how to just let people do their thing and I could do my thing. When I did have alone time, I REALLY cherished it! To this day, I cherish my alone time.
More bathroom space.... I probably still believe this one, LOL. I learned to share. I learned to follow a tight shower schedule. I learned how to shower quickly. I literally use this "quick shower" method to this day in my tiny home! Who knew???
What I'm trying to say is, if we think something has gone wrong and it should have been different, then we will more than likely have "negative" thoughts about our past experience. However, if we can look back and see how our past helped shape us to the amazing human being we are today, we can feel grateful for our past experiences and look for "more" just for fun! Not to make up for something we missed out on.
This week, I want you to look back at past experiences you think should have happened differently. Take a minute to see the other side of the coin. How did it actually benefit you? What good came out of that experience? What did you learn? How are you stronger because of your past?
There is nothing wrong with wanting "more", just realize that wanting more because you think it will make you happier will only lead to more disappointment. I would encourage you to want "more" from a place of abundance. Be happy with where you are now and with what you have now. Want "more" because you want to experience the next level and if you never got "more" you would still be just as happy exactly where you are right now.
If you want more, great news! I can help you with that! You are meant for greatness! If you want to look at what your next level looks like, let's get on a free mini session and explore what that could look like for you!
