Recently I read ‘The Soul of Money’ by Lynne Twist. I found it very nourishing. The author shares real life stories about self-sufficiency and connecting with one’s own abilities to create more meaningful living situations. The main focus of the book is presenting the belief that there is enough. She argues that we living in the Western world have been socialized to believe in the myth of scarcity. She provides much evidence that there is enough in the world, and that abundance is possible in the most unlikely places.
The premise that there is enough was first presented to me at a Vernon Women in Business luncheon by Cherie Montgomery, a Vernon based business coach. Sitting next to me, she invited me to read the inscription in her locket: I am enough. You will notice how satisfying it is to say those three words to yourself: I am enough. It is incredibly nourishing. A wonderful affirmation to add to your toolbox of coping skills!
