Ahhhh, spring! Call me a hopeless romantic, but this is the time of year when a young businessman’s (or businesswoman’s) fancy turns to thoughts of quarterly estimates and sending printer cartridges back to the store for recycling! One can almost smell the sweet petrochemical scent of ink in the air. And by the way, I think that Punxsutawney Phil was waaaay off this year!
Spring feels like a time of hope and optimism to me – especially if you live in the northern part of the country where green returns to the trees, birds come back to roost, the sun shines later in the day, and the land dries out a bit. We hope that you are all finding something to be grateful for these days. One of the things that we have learned from our journey into Sacred Commerce is that there is no abundance in the absence of gratitude. Abundance infers there are enough resources (physically and emotionally) to live in comfort, which obviously varies widely from person to person. The point is that no matter how much you have, the experience of “enough” will not be felt without living in or exploring the state of gratitude for what you do have. Make sense? See for yourself and let us know if it rings true.
