Default Thank you Julie.... I could relate to that... :)

Hi Julie,

I agree with Amber.... that was a wonderful article! Thank you! :)

Julie, that's fantastic.... Plentiful Harvest.... I love that concept.... :)

I agree... I think "going with the flow" of what seems natural can be very powerful....

For better or worse, I tend to "switch" between two modes. One mode is my "achiever" type mode (you know, the unhealthy, stressful, high-blood-pressure type).... While it's not always so pleasant, it often gets the job done, and it is very focused....

The other "mode" I get in is more the "go with the natural flow" mode, where I can fall in with the natural flow of things.... It's a much more pleasant place to be (very relaxing). :)

I can relate to this.... To me, it mainly means taking time away from things, and which can help bring everything back into focus....

I've found that often, we can stray from our original path, yet we're so busy and working so hard that we don't notice.... Taking a bit of time off gives your mind a chance to reflect on things and realize exactly how close or how far you are from your original intended path....

I agree here too.... :) Quality relationships are *extremely* important.... No one is an island, and having quality, supportive relationships can be crucial to reaching success.... :)

Thanks Julie.... I love reading your abundant writings full of plentiful harvest! :)

They make a difference to my life....
