The Oxford Dictionary of English defines abundance as a very large quantity of something, plentiful, prosperity, or overflowing.
I define abundance in terms of my values. People are very important to me. Social events, retreats, and enjoying the performing arts allow me to connect on a broader level. Playing the piano for my own enjoyment feels good but I enjoy it more when I work with other musicians and students. A great sense of humor is at the top of the list along with wit and playful banter. Deep discussions about spirituality, human potential, and energy are at the core of my close relationships and reading material. Time experiencing nature, especially flowing water is especially reviving.
If I am living an abundant life, there is plenty of time to think and read. Connecting ideas and drawing out big picture concepts is thrilling. I love strategic planning but am a little on the weak side when it comes to implementation!
My measure of abundance is to have enough resources to do what I love to do.
