Growing up, our lovely parents taught us that it is important to have goals. How important it is to continually strive for something better – well mine did. Looking back on my life, I can see that my WHOLE life has been centred around trying harder. Doing better. Working harder. Earning more. Striving. Competing.
One of my Oldest sayings has been, “I’ll never be one of those people that “Will be happy when”…. You know how it goes. I’ll be happy when I have that new car or I’ll be happy when I have paid off the house. But guess what? True to the Law of Attraction, constantly saying that has meant that this that was my focus and in the back of my mind, exactly what I have been doing – without even realising it. Putting living my life off until….

For one reason or another, I have attracted “hardship” or ongoing crap. It hasn’t all been bad but there seems to be a constant stream of drama’s. I know that I certainly give it the power by complaining “the situation” all the time.
I complain about things in the most positive of ways. The typical way that I tell my story is: Blah, blah, blah. Complain, complain, complain. “Oh but, it will be okay. It will all work out”. Or some other trending ‘positive’ catch phrase that works. This convinces others that I am a “positive” person. But, ultimately I am still complaining about the “reality” of the situation or event rather than being truly PRESENT.
Anita’s book got me to thinking that perhaps I should just throw it all out. Stop doing all of the things that make up my hour plus long morning routine to attract great wealth and a better life. Stop caring and worrying about everything. Just let life unfold as it is meant to. As I chose it to be before I even chose to incarnate in this lifetime. Just live my life purpose and everything else be damned.
But, that is not how it works. As Anita says, in our human forms our minds get in the way but we have all come here with a purpose. Collectively, by improving ourselves we improve the global consciousness simply because we are all connected.
Thinking it through again, I realised that it may be human to think but it is also human to always want to do greater things. To Strive. To grow. I certainly do. I realised that my daily routine wasn’t just about manifesting more wealth into my life. It’s true to say that I started my daily routine to learn how to manifest more wealth but I wanted more wealth so that I could help more people.
The morning routine lives another day! I just have to remind myself yet again, that it’s the journey that counts and to fully live every day.
