A Poem About Living Abundantly: A Journey

An abundant life is one fueled by the nourishment of our mental, emotional and physical well-being. It's establishing that love, intentional joy and purpose doesn't solely come from who or what we surround ourselves with; it's the inner work that cares for our needs when we experience the ups and downs, successes and struggles that life typically cycles through.
