Mindset makes the difference

Abundance and scarcity doesn’t simply refer to money; it’s a way of life.

Whether you view options as limited or limitless will determine what opportunities come your way, the quality of your relationships, your daily mood, and your chances of success.

An abundant mindset sends people out into the world generously. These are the most connected people you meet, the ones who take wins and professional setbacks in stride.

Those with a scarcity mentality see breakups and career blunders as devastating blows. The soul mate who got away. The Big Chance that will never happen again.

An abundant mind recognizes there are many potential paths and options for love and happiness.

There’s always another chance.

Letting go: A skill

Most people hold onto relationships or situations longer than necessary. Stability is appealing, and change is hard. Loyalty has the potential to be faulty, however, and should be reserved for situations that show promise and potential. Even reciprocity.

We have limited energy to share. Learning to discard situations and environments with insight and discretion is a necessary skill. Maintaining energetic ties with people who are rude, mean, or unkind serves nothing and no one.

Releasing stale, stagnant people and places welcomes more power, more magic, more energy, and more love into your life. Though difficult, it is never too late to recognize and change behavior patterns.

That which you focus on is what will expand.

Add magic

Instead of focusing on what is wrong or needs to change in your life, add something. Look for ways to fill your life with magic.

Once a day, once a week, even once a month, incorporate something that inspires you: A song that brings you joy. A place with fond memories. Fifteen minutes sitting on a bench in the park. Dancing.

Get intentional about this. Instead of waiting for a miracle to happen to you, create one for yourself. Fill your space with candles or flowers. Take a class. Wander aimlessly through a bookstore. Play. Sit in the sun. Find a new restaurant.

When you actively build excitement into daily living, work becomes more productive, relationships become more fulfilling, and life becomes brighter.

I wish for you magic, today and always.
