Abundance is not what you have. It’s what you DO with what you have.” ~ Lady Rabia
I wanted to remind them that they were cherished, that they should always accept responsibility for their experience and that they should contribute to the betterment of humanity. Oddly enough, that framed quote was one of the few things they grabbed when we were escaping Jordan.
On January 19, 2011, after a rousing reception on our arrival in the Cayman Islands, I happened to look into my daughter’s backpack. And there it was, this little pink frame, shoved haphazardly between two pieces of clothes.
Today, it still sits on their dresser, a testament to our triumph and a constant reminder to make their lives meaningful.
Living an abundant life is not accidental. It’s a choice. Though you may lack financial abundance, the relationships you want or a top career, you can decide to make your life count and commit to changing your life. The person who chooses to act regardless of their circumstance, with a conviction to succeed, must be exceptionally resourceful, resilient and of high self-esteem.
I believe true abundance is holding yourself accountable for your experiences and regardless of the circumstances, or adversity, you can overcome.
So, what is it that YOU plan to do with your one wild, precious life?
Above all things, be courageous.
