Chloe Morgane - Being Real

We Have Enough

You’re reading this, so I’m assuming you have the Internet and a device to serve you this page. I’m also assuming you have enough of the basic necessities a human being needs to live– food, water, shelter, clothing. We both have everything we need. Let’s pause, and say “Thank you”… (I just closed my eyes and whispered “thank you”)

Being More vs Wanting More

The thing is, we always want more. A better car, a bigger house, a new TV, a new computer, more clothes, more food. We know that this stuff won’t make us happier, it won’t make us more intelligent, nor will it transforms us into a better human.

I believe that being happier and healthier, being a better version of ourselves, are the things we really want. We want to be more, but we don’t have an easy way to achieve this. Let’s be real, being a better human is hard work.

And here’s another problem. We’ve learned to work for money to buy things. We feel great for a few days, or just a few hours after our purchase. So we think, maybe the key to always feel great is to buy more stuff. Isn’t that’s what our western, modern society teaches, and encourages us to do?

It’s everywhere, and everyone talks about their new car, bigger house, and the awesome food they ate at this new fancy-trendy restaurant. As if we were no more than our stuff. I hate that kind of small talk, it makes me feel empty and shallow. I don’t care about your car, your new country house… I care about what makes you vibrate, what energizes you, and the things you would die for.

Small Habits Pay the Most

To try and change my consumerism thoughts and behaviours, I’ve decided to write 3 things I’m grateful for every single morning. People are often on my list, so is my health and all the things I know how to do, like drawing, playing music, and riding my trial and off-road motorcycles. This simple, powerful habit reminds me that my life is plentiful, rich, and it gives me the courage to talk about and be the real things.

Because we have more than enough.

And we are more than enough.

All we’ll ever need is within us.

How do you remind yourself you have an amazing life?

  1. I am grateful everyday for being able to exist in basic needs. These needs should never be taken for granted, knowing what it’s like to not have them, life experiences, and choices, will usually teach this in life. Thank you for your insight.

    1. Absolutely Brian! I guess we could learn to be grateful with even less than our basic needs, but that would be reserved to the strongest among us.

  2. I totally agree. Health, love, good conversation, nature … these are item for which to be grateful. Like you I am trying meditation and gratitude journals. I focus on what I have control over which is basically me, myself, and I.

  3. I couldn’t agree with your sentiments more.

    I’m afraid we live in a consumer driven society where people are more and more becoming materialistic, be cars homes, clothes.

    We are all guilty in some way. My concern is not just the greed of people but also the impact this is having on our planet in environmental terms.

    What is important to me is having a loving family and close group of good friends (of which you are one) even though we have never met .Also what could be better than walking in the countryside/woods on a lovely day during my favorite season of Autumn?

    What a beautiful picture!!

  4. You are paid, first because you are attractive, second because you do things people want to see an attractive person do. I am a sapiosexual and less impressed by such things. Ironic, perhaps, to be interested in something before your amazing physical being and performance? Hot, and introspective. Thank you for that little smile in my day.

  5. Chloe, thank you. Following you on this journey through the blog has been amazing. I have to admit, I never saw it coming. From discovering you as Camille and now how you have evolved and transformed since the accident and the previous relationship. Thank you for teaching us how to love ourselves and others better.

    1. I am so grateful to be able to share with you, and ever more grateful if it can inspire you to love even more! Thank you for being there Mark!
