Abbondanza is the Italian word for abundance. I prefer it to the English word because it’s much more melodic – Ah bun DAN za.
When you live your life with abbondanza, you (literally and figuratively) are open, and things come to you. Let’s dispel the idea of entitlement as opposed to expectancy.
When you are entitled, you believe the world and people owe you something. Neither of them owes you a damn thing!! We call entitled people things like spoiled, narcissistic, bratty, etc. These people usually want something without putting in the effort to get it. They are often blind to what is right in front of them. They have tantrums when they don’t get what they believe they are entitled to.
On the other hand, when you believe your life is abundant, you expect things to come to you, and you are open to positivity. You manifest ideas, work hard toward them, and they become real. This is not to say that your life is perfect, but rather that you choose to focus on all the positivity rather than the negativity. Some people find a rainy day dreary, while others see it as beautiful and cleansing. It’s all a matter of perspective.
When you live a life of abundance, there are so many things to be grateful for. You should be practicing gratitude first thing every morning. Yesterday may not have been a good day, but there were good things that happened in the day. Be grateful for those things. Gratitude nourishes you right down to your cell level. How you start your day will determine your attitude throughout the day. As someone said, you can’t always choose the music that’s playing, but you can choose how you dance to it.
Live life with abbondanza!
