If you type the word 'crumb' into Google, the following definitions are given from their dictionary Oxford Languages
a small fragment of bread, cake or biscuit'
'a very small amount of something'
'an unfair and inadequate share of something large'
The key words that stand out for me in the definition are 'small fragment', 'small amount', and 'unfair and inadequate share'.
We all know what crumbs mean when relating this to bread, cake or biscuits but what about crumbs when it is in the context of your life; personal, love, work, friendship, relationships?
Have you ever accepted a small amount of something because you believed that small was better than nothing?
Have you ever accepted a small amount of something because you believed that small was all you were ever going to get?
Have you ever accepted something that you knew was less than you wanted?
Have you ever accepted something whilst feeling that it was unfair but said nothing?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is likely that you have some limiting beliefs regarding your self worth, don't have confidence to push further for what you truly want or have fallen into habits that have made you feel safe and so the thought of breaking them feels too scary.
There are so many ways in which we accept less in our lives;
Staying in romantic relationships that are not meeting all our needs because we don't think we will find that person that can give us all we need and want.
Accepting mediocre salary increases at work because that is all we can ever earn
Keeping friendships that do not lift us up and are filled with jealousy because we have been friends with them for years
Working in a job that doesn't light us up and instead fills us with dread on a Sunday night because we dare not take the risk to move to another company
Having poor and unhealthy diets that negatively impact our bodies, moods and emotional states because we don't take the time to cherish and nourish ourselves.
If you have the niggle that something is less than you want in an area of your life, then it probably is. But it does not need to be this way, and the good news is that you have the power to change it,
The power to change anything in your life always sits with you, whether that is your thoughts, your behaviours, your circumstances, your goals, your actions, how you react to an emotion, the boundaries you set, the choices you make, the people you allow into your life, your diet and so much more.
You just have to be brave enough to do something about it and that often comes from learning and realising that you deserve so much more.
Quoting the Great Wizard of Oz "you've always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself"
Don't be fooled into playing a victim of your circumstances, because you always have a choice and are able to look at something and ask yourself is this enough for me? Is this decision made from a place of love and abundance or a place of fear and lack? Remember your life is based on a series of choices that you have made, so make sure every choice moves you closer to what you want.
You deserve the cake, the loaf of bread, the full packet of biscuits, in fact, all three together so don't ever settle and accept the crumbs.
