Where do we get the fuel to thrive and flourish?
We have -- within us -- the fuel to thrive and to flourish.
Where is this fuel within us?
We tap into it whenever we feel energized and excited by new ideas.
We tap into it whenever we feel at one with our surroundings.
We tap into it whenever we feel playful, creative, or silly.
We tap into it whenever we feel our soul stirred by the sheer beauty of existence.
We tap into it whenever we feel connected to others and loved.
In short, we tap into it whenever positive emotions resonate within us.
When positive emotions are in ample supply we take off.
We become generative, creative, resilient,
ripe with possibility and beautifully unpredictable.
