We once wished for what we now have

June 24, 2020

We live in a fast-paced world and sometimes we can fall into the habit of comparing ourselves to other people who may be in positions that we wish we were in, or have things that we wish we had in our own lives. This creates a feeling of lack because we’re continuously focussed on what we don’t have, which is why I encourage everyone to practice daily gratitude to remind ourselves of all the things we do have.

I find that the things I’m most grateful for are the simple things. Not the car or the house or the material things, but the small things – the sun through the window, the warm breeze on my face and the many blessings that money gives me in my everyday life.

I’ve worked with a lot of different people over the years, from all different sorts of financial situations, and this has given me the opportunity to appreciate the little things that most of us are lucky enough to take for granted.

Like watching the check-out person scan my groceries without a body full of anxiety because I’m worried it will cost more than the small amount of money I have left in my bank account.

Or the dread of receiving a bill I haven’t budgeted for this month and not being able to pay it.

Or the worry that if anything happened I don’t have enough money to get my family out of trouble.

There are so many things to be grateful for. I hope you take some time to notice them for yourself this week.
