Even after years of doing my own work through my coaching program with my life coach it still feels strange to say that I can see how scarcity served me.
But in my determination and excitement at leaping from a life-long perception of scarcity to the brand new creation of abundance (and not just of money – we’re talking an abundance of love, of passion, of self-care and good health, of community and loving friends, of support…) I’ve been unable to disregard looking at how living with scarcity has served me (or how I’ve thought it served me, which is the same thing).
Again, this is a kind of personal bit of myself I’m sharing, so if you don’t really want to know any more about me, stop reading here.
Living in scarcity is sort of a pattern in my family. In my house growing up there was a constant fear of scarcity, fights about scarcity, repercussions of scarcity, and yes, bonding together in the face of scarcity.
Stepping away from that scarcity, refusing to believe it anymore and instead believing in abundance, in magnificent gobs of luxurious goodness, of the concept of “enough” and stability, of comfort, of making decisions instead of living at the mercy of scarcity means something.
It means stepping away from a family paradigm. It means going out on my own. It means, in the heart of the little, younger-me that lives inside the adult-me, to some extent moving away from my family and their beliefs and ways of living.
And there’s sadness in that. Until I find new ways to consciously honor my family of origin, new ways to bond with them, with their memories, new ways to honor my deep, deep love for them.
But I will no longer do it by buying into the belief of scarcity.
My work this month: keeping an abundance log! My amazing marketing coach, Payson Cooper (check her out if you’re ready to CATAPULT your dreams into the world! http://www.paysoncooper.com/#) assigned me this homework, and I’m LOVING it.
I had my assistant make me an abundance spreadsheet where I enter every single penny that comes into my life – including the ones I pick up from the street (which I’ve started doing again…thanks, Universe!!) and I’m getting to watch the abundance add up.
Something interesting that I noticed: the more self-care I invest in, the more abundance shows up in my log. Watch out, world!!!
And to my fellow New York women here’s a tip: Charlotte Blake of www.mamamovesnyc.com has been KEY in my self-care these days– she’s guided me in losing pounds, knee and back pain, low self-esteem and increased core strength, energy, flexibility and self-confidence! She is an AMAZING personal trainer, working with women in New York City. Check her out and tell her Britt sent you!
