Chose Abundance Once
Your next challenge can be made into a delightful excursion. It is less structured but can still be an important way to learn what abundance means to you. It does involve spending money, but it can be done in a grocery store or anywhere else you like to shop.
Set aside more time than you think you will need for this one. Don’t use it to do routine shopping. You will be going to a store for only one purpose. You are to choose and purchase something that you can easily afford that feels to you like it is a real luxury.
Shannon did this exercise and purchased one beautiful, out of season, pear and a box of expensive exotic tea bags, brought them home and thoroughly enjoyed the abundance she experienced.
Evan purchased a beautiful leather jacket that he wore frequently and enjoyed thoroughly. Your experience is up to you.
