If You Concentrate on What You Don’t Have...

If you concentrate on what you don’t have...

 You Will Never, Ever Have Enough."          -Oprah Winfrey

One of the most common things I hear from clients is "I love this.....fill in the blank." I've been hearing it so much lately that it occurred to me that it's not the item(s) that they want and enjoy; it's the experience of feeling love that they enjoy. But is there really a difference between the love we feel about an object we already own and the love we feel about something new?  Obviously we felt an attraction to the older item at the time we bought it. It seems like it might be a matter of focus. Once something becomes a part of our environment, it's easy to overlook it. It blends into the background. Since all the new things are in stores and we haven't been looking at them for years, they are easier to see.  The next time you're feeling the need to 'feel the love', give this a try:  walk around your house and focus on what's already there. Remember the reasons why you acquired what you already have. It might just connect you to that feeling of love you're looking for.
Here is the question:
How can you practice feeling love without buying something new?
