What if we looked at financial abundance in a more expansive way? What if financial wealth is more than, oh, say, winning the lottery? Being a millionaire? Traveling the world, having a vacation home, retiring early, insert-big-dream-here?

Sure it can mean those things too, whether Right Now or One Day for us. But let’s notice where we might have financial wealth in a variety of ways, today. Here’s an exercise that is inspired by Tori Dunlap, founder of Her First 100K:
