A Practical Tip to Find Abundance: Have To Versus Get To

A Practical Tip to Find Abundance: Have To Versus Get To

What are some practical ways that we can find abundance in our day-to-day lives? For me, it boils down to having tools in my toolbox that keep me centered on what is most important in life. Today, I’m sharing one very simple strategy I implement.

This simple method has helped me shift my perspective to what matters most on the days it doesn’t occur naturally.

Overcoming the Struggle to Ask for and Accept Help

Overcoming the Struggle to Ask for and Accept Help

Asking for help is not my natural inclination. Neither is accepting help when it’s offered. It’s much easier to convince myself that I’m creating an unnecessary inconvenience or burden. At the heart of the matter, my inability to ask for and accept help usually stems from a desire not to appear weak. I prefer to “have it all together.” But the hardest days only feel harder when I try to push through on my own.

Instead of believing the lie that asking for and accepting help is a weakness, I’ve begun to see it as an opportunity to connect with others and be served.

As one year fades into another, it’s a natural time for reflection. A time spent uncovering what went well, what we wish had gone differently, what we learned along the way, and what our hope is for the future. Reflection is an opportunity to evaluate the past in order to reveal the ways we’ve grown and changed.

We are given a path forward when we take the lessons learned from the past and use them as a guide. One way I do this is by selecting a word of the year.

Since I was a kid I’ve read and studied the Bible, but it wasn’t until this year that I felt I found a simplified approach to studying God’s word.

Pause to List the Good

On Sunday, I broke down in tears not once, but twice. I was six days post-op from an achilles lengthening procedure.

Time and time again, I have learned the best medicine anytime I’m feeling low is to focus on the good. This past month, Emily P. Freeman shared a list of good things in her monthly letter, which enticed me to write my own as I worked through my Sunday slump.
