Wanda Grindstaff presents The Buck Stops Within – Accept Responsibility for your Success posted at Creating Abundant Lifestyles Begin With Abundance Mindset. She says, “To have everything you desire, start with accepting responsibility for where you are and where you are going.” Not enough emphasis is placed on self responsibility, so I am delighted to see this article!
Belle Wong presents Retrain Your Senses posted at Abundance Journal. This article offers a simple but powerful technique to rediscover beauty and wonder whenever “clear seeing” is fogged by the sometimes-chaotic events of every day life. A well written article, it sounds to me very much the way artists perceive the world.

My own entry in this carnival is a poem, best read aloud. However, I have not braved the trials of adding podcasting to my blog as yet, so this is clearly a do it yourself project! Let your left brain sort paper clips or something and use the right brain for absorbing The Apocalyptic Egg.
