“If you want love and abundance in your life, give it away.” Mark Twain
This quote pulls the focus off of the individual and puts it on the world. Give freely and abundantly, and it’s amazing what comes back to you.
This is a daily practice – not just one and done. It’s regular emotional tithing.
Here is last weeks’ blog post:
“Natural Consequences, Discipline…or Punishment”
Are you asking for a kush life, but not recognizing the opportunities that develop your perspective?
Expectations are premeditated resentments. Be open to the opportunities that may be around you that you don’t expect.
There are little signposts – or alerts – along the way that can affirm your path.

If you want more coming in, open yourself up to invest in others.
When we only look at the surface, we lose. Look deeper for true connection.

Co-Creating At It’s Best – Dr. Wayne Dyer, Esther Hicks, and Abraham:
“Use whatever excuse you can to vibrate in harmony with those things you’ve been saying you want. And when you do, those things that are a vibrational equivalent flow into your experience in abundance. Not because you deserve it, but because it’s the natural consequence of the Law of Attraction. That which is like unto itself is drawn.” Esther Hicks
You follow your fears. If you are stuck living in the fear of losing something, or something horrible happening…or living in the past pains…switching this script makes a huge impact on what your future will hold.
Once you are able to love yourself, you are able to love people beyond what you dreamed possible. It boils down to accepting that you are who you are, and you have a purpose in this life.

Sometimes we gain wealth only to “Ebeneezer Scrooge” it. (Nathan)
Flip the script. Change your perspective and point of view.
And for your children, don’t let your fears get in the way of them embracing life. Don’t fill them with a world of “can’t”. There is a world of “can.”
Sometimes we can get so lost in our own misery that we forget there are others out there. Everybody has a story.

We choose “Logsdon Love Day” every day. Every day is an opportunity to celebrate what we have. To be grateful. Not just an obligatory holiday feel-good.
As you pour into others, its amazing how rich you will feel.
It doesn’t mean you have to hold onto every gift out of obligation. Pay it forward.
And when you give, give and let go. Don’t hold on to the expectations of how it will be received.
Help each other. Love each other. Love yourself, and give grace.
Your challenge – Pick someone every day to give to. No agenda, no reciprocity, no reason. Give randomly and generously just because.
Give anonymously. This is a wonderful little book to share with the girls about Santa when they start to question it all. I love that what it highlights is that yes, Santa is real, and it’s a name for people who give in secret. The focus isn’t in the person, but what being “Santa” is really about. It’s about being secretive because the real gift of giving is the joy it gives to others. It states “Saint Nicholas was the first Santa Clause, but anyone who shares the SPIRIT of the holiday through giving is a Santa”. Check out “The Wonderful Truth About Santa”
Four key areas we discussed:
- Drop your expectations. Abundance may come in a different way than you anticipated.
- Don’t have a scarcity mentality. Don’t attract your greatest fears.
- Fill people’s buckets. Look for how you can give and invest in others.
- Accept giving with gratitude. Not just for what the gift is, but that someone else thought of you – be a gracious receiver.
