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? 

We’re Blessed

A few days ago, I’ve watched a documentary about the world’s worst prison on earth. The focus of this particular documentary was about the San Pedro prison in La Paz, Bolivia.

The country has given up completely on the inmates, and they have to get organized by themselves. They have jobs inside the community, buy or rent their accommodation, and often live with their families. Yes, there are women and children living behind the prison walls.

Since I’ve watched the documentary, I’ve been feeling immensely blessed. Every morning, I get to drink a delicious coffee, something the criminals and their family probably don’t do even morning, or at all. I feel very safe in my country. In Bolivia, if police suspects you of anything, you’re guilty until proven otherwise. Here, it’s the other way around.

I know the men in San Pedro are criminals. Their privileges of being a part of our society have been revoked. That’s fair enough to me.

Seeing what happens there made me feel so grateful for all the little things that I usually take for granted. Eating 3 tasty and healthy meals a day. Taking a warm shower every day. Brushing my teeth. Sleeping in a comfortable bed. Being free to choose what I want to do every single day.

I think we are blessed, and we don’t even recognize it. We complain, some more than others 😉

I’m not comparing myself to the inmates. Aside from being human, we don’t have much in common. I’m using their misery to realize how most people’s life are awesome, including mine.

Life is a gift. Say thank you!

Have you ever had a moment like this, when you suddenly realize how blessed you are?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have. I’m Canadian, so I’ve already celebrated, but being grateful for everything I have in my life is something I practice every day. I believe you should try it too, because being thankful gives you more of that greatness that you already have in your life.

And then there’s the science of gratitude that clearly shows it gives you health benefits, like a strong immune system and lower blood pressure. You’ll also be happier, optimistic, generous, compassionate and you’ll feel less lonely.

So, what are you grateful for?
