29-A What's Missing

After last weeks topic about being good and feeling good on the inside, I thought it would be good to write about what we may be missing in our life.  We may be doing great things and still feel like something is missing.  An interesting way to think about what you may be missing is to turn this around on yourself so you realize what you are missing is what you are not giving.  What you are missing in our own life is a direct reflection of what you are not giving to others and even to yourself. 

If we start to recognize what we feel is missing and we begin to give that to others, we will get that back from others too.  If we become conscious of what we want most in life and we open ourselves up to share that with others, then we will open ourselves up to receive that too.  We must give in order to receive.

It sounds so simple, but to be able to turn this around and realize that what we are missing most is what we are holding back from sharing is sometimes quite hard to grasp.  Then, taking it to the level of starting to give more of yourself, especially in the areas you feel are missing, is even harder to do.

I hope by reading through the questions and doing fieldwork and bonus challenge this week, you will begin to make great strides in eliminating what is missing from your life.  You deserve to have everything you dream of!

Either journal about these topics or spend a few minutes thinking through each of the answers.
- What do you feel is missing from your life?
- Do you give this freely to others?
- How can you give more of what you are missing?
- What would it feel like to not have anything missing from your life?
- What would it feel like to give of yourself more freely?
- How can you give more of yourself so you are missing less in your life?

This week, really begin to think about what you feel is missing from your life.  For example love, companionship, money, kindness, etc.  You get the point.  Make a list of the items you feel are most important for you to have in your life and go deep into what you really need to have a happy, meaningful life.

Quote: Andre Gide- Complete possession is proved only by giving. All you are unable to give possesses you.

Topic 29 Bonus Challenge:
Pick one thing that is really missing from your life right now and focus on giving that to others. See what doing this brings to you!

Enjoy the journey!
