“When we’re in fear, we hold on to what we’ve got because we don’t trust that there’s more.” – Jen Sincero Life framed in fear is life framed in scarcity, life lived within limits.  It’s like taking a deep breath and refusing to exhale, refusing to allow more oxygen to flow and nourish your body. Exhale.  Let go.  Breathe.  When you allow fear to control your life, you hold on so tightly to what you’ve got that there’s no room to get more. Let go and get more.  The flow of abundance awaits.

You reach inside and gather the strength to do small things.  Do small things with love.  And in doing so you light a candle within.  A candle of hope, of change, of starting anew.
