What is your relationship with time and money? Are you always saying I'm busy I don't have enough time and money to do the things I enjoy? I wish I could afford that fun trip, that show, that class but I can't, if only I had a different job, a better spouse, a different car, more money, a bigger house, a healthier body...fill in the blank... THEN I would spend time doing what I love and THEN I would create great things but I can't do what I love NOW because I just don't have enough time and I don't have the money. Or are you saying; I LOVE having all the time in the world to do all the things I enjoy. The more I enjoy my life the more I notice money, health and vitality flows to me. I'm so grateful and happy to spend my time and money learning, expanding, strengthening, thriving, loving, giving and creating unabashedly.
Your relationship with time and money is most definitely one of lack if you constantly repeat the mantra “I don't have enough...” You might think, if only I had more time and money then I would have more fun, practice yoga, take an acting class, love my spouse, be a better friend, be a better listener, volunteer, learn to sing, laugh and play but I don't have enough time because I'm too busy! Too busy doing what? Being miserable? Who is telling you that you can't be the person of your dreams RIGHT NOW? Who is telling you that you should be miserable for the next thirty years because THEN you will be rewarded with a better job, a better spouse, a better house THEN you will have time to be creative, to be happy, to be healthy... fill in the blank? When in fact, the fun starts only when you allow it to start, that's it. Time and money are just energy. They are both made up ideas so people could track things. The problem is that we often use these tracking inventions as limitations to our endless possibilities for happiness. It all depends on how you look at it. Ask yourself, what is my relationship with time and money? If it's one of lack just begin catching yourself, instead of saying; I'm broke, say I'm grateful for all that I have, all my needs are met! If you begin to tell a different story one that feels better, you will begin to feel better. Wayne Dyer said; “when you change the way you see things the things you see begin to change.”
It's a beautiful thing to be busy, if you're busy doing what you love, being love, sharing love, health, vitality, creativity and happiness. You will find that when you're living your life's purpose life takes a major shift and “busy” begins to feel full, expansive and gratifying rather than lacking, stressful and frantic.
I guess it comes down to this, if the truth is that you don't have enough time and money or there's very little of it... wouldn't you rather be spending your time and money by doing something you enjoy now? Wouldn't you want to try things that challenge you to grow now, take that class that's been calling to you now, audition for that part now and participate in all the activities that inspire you now? It makes more sense to live your life NOW, instead of waiting for some ideal of tomorrow that may never come.
You are being called to live your dreams or you wouldn't be reading this blog so give yourself permission to live a full life and be the person you want to be today. What would you do if you had all the time and money to do what you love? Act from a place of abundance and you will be supported. Create the life you dreamed of, travel courageously and create boldly because then you will have all the time and money you need.
