Sometimes, when I hear a friend tell me that her ex still gives her money when she needs it... or when another friend's mother comes through with extra cash... I tend to think resentfully,
"Well, it must be nice."
I don't have that.
After a giving up that thought, I remember,
"Ya know, abundance is abundance. Some sources just seem to be a bit more obvious than others."
Then I bless my friends and smile at their abundance.
Because when I look around me, I recognize that I DO have that too.
"The subject of money is really two subjects: (1) money, plenty of money, and (2) absence of money, not nearly enough money. Often people assume that because they are speaking the words "I want more money," they are speaking positively about money. When you are feeling fear or discomfort as you speak, you are not speaking of the subject of money, you are speaking of the subject of not enough money. And the difference is very important, because the first statement brings money and the second holds it away."
