What Don’t You Have Enough Of?

I don’t have enough …. You name it and I can tell you that I don’t have enough of it.
It has been becoming more and more evident to me lately that I have been subscribing to a scarcity mindset. It has been showing up in so many different areas of my life and causing me a lot of anxiety in the past several weeks. I had no idea, previously, how strongly this had permeated my life. It’s pretty fascinating actually.
Lately, I have been trying to become more consistent about doing my daily thought downloads. It’s where I take a few minutes each day to just jot down whatever thoughts my brain is offering me. Some might call it journaling, but I prefer the term thought downloads. To me, journaling is more intentional while thought downloads is really just doing a data dump of whatever is in my brain at that particular moment.
What keeps showing up in my thought downloads is the scarcity. Some of my thoughts that revealed this include – these don’t show up in my thoughts in these exact words – they are disguised, but these are what they boil down to:
– I don’t have enough time
– I don’t have enough knowledge
– I don’t have enough experience
– I don’t have enough discipline
– I don’t have enough money
– I don’t have enough charm
– I don’t have enough focus
– I’m not smart enough
– I’m not savvy enough
– I’m not interesting enough
– I don’t have enough clients
– I don’t have enough energy
I could probably fill this page with thoughts representing scarcity. The point is when I’m living authentically, I don’t let my brain use these excuses as a way to avoid doing whatever God has in store for me. I don’t accept these thoughts or beliefs as my truth, my reality.
I get out there and I do it anyway. Because, ultimately, I do believe that whatever I actually need that I don’t have, God will help me get or do or be. That’s not to say that I just sit back and wait for it to come to me, but that means that I seek His counsel and the counsel of trusted advisors and the result is that I will find the answers. The things that I don’t actually need, I will realize that as well, through the same channels and by questioning my thoughts and seeking the answers that are already within me.
So, no worries, I’ve totally got this!
