A simple way to go from “not enough” to “more than enough”.
Breastfeeding was always something I wanted to do. 🤱 I wanted to know exactly what was in my baby’s milk and I wanted her to have the immune benefits also. I’d had dreams about breastfeeding my baby years before I was pregnant.
I had planned for it. What I hadn’t planned for was having a premature baby. When I did, it rocked my entire world. Not being able to hold and nurse my baby broke my heart.
I chose to breastfeed by pumping milk for nurses to give to her. This decision led to a continued journey that lasted for approximately 16 months.
My daughter had a tongue and lip tie that wasn’t detected until several months that made it difficult for her to latch for direct nursing. So, I triple fed her and ending up having an oversupply of milk. 🍼
As life would have it, a night nurse that helped me when my daughter first came home contacted me. She told me a baby lost its mom during childbirth, but the mom wanted to breastfeed her baby.
I donated milk to the baby and was honored to do so. My amazing body was able to provide milk for two babies! There was never a time where I worried about not having enough milk. I knew if I continued to remove milk, my body would create more. Without knowing it, I embraced an abundance mindset. 🧠
The same principle can be applied to other resources, like time and money. 💰 I’ve had a scarcity mindset about these resources until I began to embrace the belief that there’s more than enough to go around.
If you’ve ever had a fear of running low or running out of resources such as time or money, you are operating from a place of scarcity. Your brain likes comfort.
Choosing to embrace abundance over scarcity is like trying on a new pair of shoes. 👠
At first, it might be a bit uncomfortable, but once you break them in, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t switched sooner!
In this example, the shoe represents a thought. 💭 You would take off the scarcity shoe (old thought) and put on the abundance shoe (new thought) to learn a different way of thinking. It’s super simple. 🙂
