Day 002: what is abundance?

2 Jan

I suppose if I am going to spend an entire year focusing, researching and diving into the pool of “abundance”

…I should start with a general understanding of what it is.

So here we have it, straight out of the dictionary:

Abundance:

  1. an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quality or supply
  2. overflowing fullness: abundance of the heart
  3. affluence; wealth, the enjoyment of abundance

But, really it goes deeper than that, right?

It has to be more than a defined word.
It must be a state of mind.
A way of being.
A way of life.

So what is abundance to me?
It’s a good question.

I pondered the idea as we walked the streets of New York City over the holiday.

  • NYC. The Big Apple. Mecca of wealth and privilege.
  • Limitless options, extravagant shopping and dining.
  • Beautiful buildings and beautiful people.
  • The best of the best. The cream of the crop.
  • If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.
  • Start spreading the news!

Then I saw this sign.

thepromis365.com, jamie eslinger, the promise daily

“In the City That Never Sleeps, everyone needs a place to pray.”

And it made me think about what my “gifts” each day this year should be.

Money?
Time?
Love?
Prayers?

So here goes …I have to start somewhere.

My gift today:
Everyone who comments on the blog today will receive a prayer from me. That’s it. I will send good vibes your way. Straight from my heart.

Could only help us all, right??

And that brings me to…
What does abundance mean to you?

More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
