Outsmart Scarcity and Live in Abundant Time

Vegetables-Scarcity or Abundance

Scarcity or abundance – you decide.

Scarcity makes your life smaller – much smaller than it actually is or needs to be. You have the ability to outsmart that mentality – and today I want to help you get started so that you move out of scarce time and into abundant time.

The scarcity mentality can arise in any situation. It’s not just about work or school pressure  and stress. It can also arise when your choices are all about fun – like when there are too many summer plans to fit into the available days.

Don’t let urgency eat a hole in YOUR creativity and take the fun out of fun!

Replacing a scarcity-based perception of time with one founded in abundant time enriches you through all the seasons! So join me as we explore this subject in a series of posts and step into wisdom, abundance and joy.
