It really seems like we, the collective we, need to gather together and work some magic and lighten our collective stress. *hugs* to all. Maybe we need a mini online vacation, like when we had the birthday ball?
Well, Beltane is coming up, isn't it
And Earth Day....

All this really resonates with me right now. I've been struggling with the question of how to visualize/manifest abundance and a more relaxed, stress-free life, with less worry and more joy, for myself and my family. I don't want to download my money stress onto my kids, either now, nor when they are adults making choices that might reflect what I've taught them about how to live....
I'm having trouble with the language of it. I don't think wanting a balanced budget (which has been elusive here too, lately) or means to pay my debts is enough. Being debt-free sounds too tied to the idea of debt. Just saying I want to be free is too broad, feels a little frightening. I have a lot going on in my life that I don't think I *want* to be liberated from.
I don't want to ask for anything new that I might not be able to handle. I don't want to ask for the means to artificially sustain a way of life that is not ultimately sustainable, on an emotional level, the level of physical health, and an ecological level as well as financially, ykwim?
I'm pestering my dh with unthinkable questions like, "What would we want from life if we didn't have kids?" and "Are these dreams we're chasing really "our" dreams, or someone else's ideas of what we should want?"
