SPEND OUT

My theme of the month is SPEND OUT. I want to wear dresses even on weekdays, use up the markers and notepads I have stashed around the house, and make sure to eat all the delicious fruit before it goes bad. I want to finish up gift cards I’ve been hoarding and read the good books I’m saving on my shelves. I want to spend it all, these resources I have stockpiled and these things that I have somehow come to believe should only be trotted out on rare and special occasions. What am I saving it for if not to enjoy today?

ABUNDANCE! I want to live in abundance mentality, not in fear of scarcity.

Also, this wonderful little video is charming me today:

    we don’t have no money / money makes the wheels of the world go round / forget about it honey

    full lyrics:

    “I Didn’t See It Coming”

    Make me dance, I want to surrender
    Your familiar arms, I remember
    We’ve been going transcontinental
    Got no car, we just take a rental

    But we don’t have the money
    (money makes the wheels and the world go round)
    Forget about it, honey

    Make me dance, I want to surrender
    Your familiar arms, I remember
    Everybody’s talking about you
    Every word’s a whisper without you

    But we don’t have the money
    (money makes the wheels and the world go round)
    Forget about it, honey
    Trouble’s never far away when you’re around

    I didn’t see it coming
    I’m just not in the running

    Take me on a train ‘cos I’m not flying
    I can see the world from a different side
    Read about us in the morning papers
    When we make it alive

    I didn’t see it coming
    I’m just not in the running

    And we don’t need a lifetime
    We’re following the right line

    I like living by this mentality also. I am this way now with my art supplies- no more yarn, fabric, paper, canvas until I’ve used most of it up; same with food in the cabinet and all my clothes.
