WHY I PROMISED MYSELF TO NEVER USE THE WORD EXPENSIVE AGAIN
Moving to Kaua’i I’ve noticed something:
People are borderline obsessed with calling anything and everything on Kaua’i “expensive”.
I noticed this and made a promise to myself to never use the word again and especially living here.
Your words create your reality. If you declare life one way, so it goes. People still don’t get that your WORDS CREATE YOUR REALITY.
Reality doesn’t exist without language.
Expensive = scarcity mindset.
More bang for my buck = abundance mindset
I can afford anything that I prioritize and work for = abundance mindset
I can’t afford it = scarcity mindset
You know what’s truly expensive?
Getting to the end of your life with regrets
Dying without living your dreams
Living in an ugly place with air and noise pollution
Being unhealthy in your body, mind and heart
Lacking connection to the divine
You know what’s free on Kaua’i?
Seeing the Milky Way with the naked eye at night
Watching endangered monk seals sleep on the beach
Snorkeling with green sea turtles
Every single beach
Stunning natural beauty
My first week on the island I scooped 3 beach reads and a gorgeous ceramic candleholder for FREE at a garage sale, she said “just take them!”
I picked up 5 star fruit for $1 and a huge avocado for $2 at a fruit stand. My friend Steve gave me four huge avocado for free.
And I am subletting a place one block from the beach for $300 less than what I paid in Austin for housing. I can hear the ocean from my place and look at the mountains. Oh and there are free bikes for me to use.
Gas at Costco is $3 a gallon, less than I paid in California when I lived there for 6 years and not much more than I paid in Austin.
You manifest your reality.
You choose if life is expensive or affordable.
You choose scarcity or abundance.
You choose, create and manifest everything in your life.
To deny it is to shirk responsibility for your life and deny your power as a human.
