Grateful for: Bidding Farewell to My Victimhood

Sorry for falling down on the job yesterday – I blame the food coma 🙂 Hope everyone had a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

I used to walk around pretty much feeling like I was a victim of life’s cruel whims. I mean, after all, so many other people out there were so much better off than I was. They had more money, better jobs, nicer cars, loving spouses, you name it. Since none of this stuff had found its way into my life, I felt like a constant recipient of misfortune. So many other people had it so much easier, it seemed, and it had all just been handed to them.

As I began my healing journey, something amazing happened … I learned about the magic of gratitude. I learned to view life from a mindset of abundance, vs. from a mindset of want. And what do you know … I went from feeling like I had nothing to seeing that I actually had everything I needed – provided for me on a daily basis.

Something else incredible happens, I find, when I cultivate a mindset of positive energy and abundance. It attracts more positive things, and even more abundance. For one, I believe that putting positive energy into the world actually moves my spirit and being in that positive direction. For another, it seems that the Higher Power – as I call it, God – is happy to bring us more once we appreciate what we already have.

I am NOT a victim of fate, circumstances, or “bad things.” I am instead empowered to treasure and appreciate everything I have in my life today, right now, this very minute.
