It’s a blessing when our cup overflows. But the most useful part of the cup—isn’t the cup! It’s the space inside. To experience abundance in our lives, we have to make space for it. Sometimes that means clearing out both the plentiful and the excess, to make room for the new; be that a cluttered closet during spring cleaning, a monkey-mind, or a burdened heart. and even more love.
