So, there I was. Laying in my self imposed puddle of hopelessness when I heard that tiny voice inside whisper those words of wisdom. "What are you without"?
"What am I without you ask?" Well, I was in the perfect place to let that tiny voice know exactly all the things I was without! So without hesitation I began to list all the things missing in my life starting with, of course, money. Then on and on I went, as item after item fell from my list of all the things that I was without in my life. All the while that tiny voice sat there, (with the nerve to smile by the way), as I read off that long list of missing things.

Well if there had been any strength left in me I may have jumped out the window but instead I simply lay there lost in those simple words.
It was then that I was beginning to understand what was being said to me. I lay there understanding that right now, in this moment, I was "without" no thing.
