I’ve been thinking a lot about abundance lately. You know, that feeling of enoughness. Which is, ironically, rare in our land o’ plenty.
The abundance mindset is a powerful state of believing you have enough of whatever you need. That you will be taken care of. That you can trust the Universe and the people around you to meet your needs.

I just love spring. Everything is so NEW. Maybe it’s the thick bloom of fresh fauna bursting out into the city all around me. Determined wildflowers pushing up through cracks in the sidewalk.
Nature’s doing her thing, and it’s time to do ours. Let’s try something totally new.
Trying new things makes us grow in so many ways. It expands our sense of self, gives our brain circuits a jolt of fresh juice. Our goal for the next couple of weeks is to try something we’ve never done before. (more…)
