Ever notice how easy it is for kids to show their abundance? The toddler that crawls closer to you from across the room, then stops and flashes the biggest smile you ever did see. The Little Leaguer who slides onto home plate for the first time who jumps up and yells ‘YES!’ The excitement in the eyes of the little girl who sees the bike she’s wanted forever sitting outside her door.
You’ve seen it before – that wonderful mix of surprise, glee and gratitude that’s all rolled into one small face. If you’re watching, you can almost taste their joy, and your soul is uplifted by the abundance you’ve just witnessed. And in that moment, everything is just perfect, and you couldn’t ask for anything more.
Abundance can Also Be Found in What You Remember
When I saw this graphic today, it took me back to the times I had SO much fun swinging, and all was definitely right in my world. I loved swinging, mostly because I could do it by myself, even if none of my friends were outside. I’d start out slow, and then rock myself back and forth, going higher, then higher, and higher still.
I felt completely free, like anything was possible. There were no limits, no troubles, nothing blocking my way. I could even be Super Woman if I wanted to! And of course I did, if only for a little while. I could barely hear the everyday sounds of people talking, cars passing by or sneakers fighting it out with the asphalt while the older boys played basketball not far away.
Yup, I was living in abundance alright – happy, receptive and fully satisfied. That is until the next day, when I could recreate the feeling all over again :).
Remember how it felt to swing as high as you could. How from there, you thought maybe you could reach the sky. That part of you still exists within you.
Knock, knock. Who’s there? It’s me – your abundance. Just like old times.
