Why is Gus limping is my take away query and is he okay?! 😉 This is an awesome way to think about the season and life - thank you!

Gus is fine-- he has a muscle strain from being a dork with 0% chill and no brakes. The vet just saw him, and he's going to make it (unfortunately).

Love this post, thank you! Those figs in the pictures look incredible, and cheers to the little kid / fellow weirdo who thought to put silly treasures on the sidewalk, so hilariously perfect!

The fellow weirdos are growing strong out there, Laura. Strength in the weirdo force!

I've been working on finding abundance in the yin/receptivity/passivity and I remembered that I originally heard that concept from you (of course!)! All of the suggestions you've shared feel like active abundance, generosity just for the sake of it, which is a tremendous reframe. I actually bought myself flowers recently (thank you Central Market!) Also, wtf Etsy

Turns out: "intelligent" systems aren't that smart (Etsy). Also, I'm still very much on the yin train as a personal project-- not hitting every note perfect, and certainly struggling with my addition to doing, but what's helping me make progress are the measurable "wins". Literally every time I just loosen up, go for a walk, or gift something, something good comes my way. It's certainly a practice, and not a destination.

What a great sentiment as we go into the holiday season. As they say, it's always better to give than receive. But we certainly can make room for both...

The cool part? Abundance energy gets activated with both giving and receiving, so it's a genuine win/win.
