Happiness21: Abundance and Money


After years of secrecy, today I come out against the word “abundance” as it is most commonly used, as a way (IMO) of justifying and even glamorizing greed and over-consumption.

There. I said it.

Thanks to:

  • The Sun for the quote I read in today’s show (and for thousands of quotes I didn’t read);
  • Barbara Kingsolver for writing many gut-wrenchingly beautiful things;
  • Carsie Blanton for writing songs that I like getting stuck in my head;
  • Loren for sharing his A/C with me, even though it exposes my hypocrisy and forces me to admit my own shameful over-consumption right here for everyone to see.

Nobody ever said being human was easy.
