Abundance

Origin of replenish: late Middle English (in the sense ‘supply abundantly’): from Old French repleniss-, lengthened stem of replenir, from re- ‘again’ (also expressing intensive force) + plenir ‘fill’ (from Latin plenus ‘full’).

When we fall short, it will be because of our own limitations, not because we had an inadequate ideal.*
David Brooks

My colleague Harriet Harris began a wonderful new initiative supporting students and staff at the University of Edinburgh towards thriving rather than depleting: The Abundant Academy.

I’ve just completed the image for the first of three courses; they are Replenish, Reconnect and Realise. I thought to share this because there’s never been a better time to find the resources that help us to thrive. When we find each other then we are on our way to creating our own academies.

When we were exploring the possible themes for The Abundant Academy, the team of us working with Harriet loved the richness of replenish, a place of supplying abundantly.

Let me know if I can help in your replenishment.
