What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

Today Madeline and Cynthia explore how we may be starting this year depleted. The tiredness, the losses, and the frustrations make it hard to keep going. 

Just as a car will stop working if not fueled and maintained, we have needs that must be met if we are to continue in productive and abundant living. We will explore what is it that keeps us going: knowing how to fill the tank, managing our emotions, and caring for our bodies enough to gain strength and abundance.

Who is on my internal team? What internal team members help me thrive? *Remember they always say YES

Abundance…What’s in your garden? (Strengths)
