First of all, the team at La Pimbêche wants to wish you a beautiful and sweet beginning of fall. As much as we LOVE summer, the last heat waves are now giving space to a cooler weather, and we are super excited to be slowly but surely entering sweatshirt and hoodie season!
As you've probably noticed, La Pimbêche is a brand featuring the artist-owner original artwork and illustrations. Her goal is to share her voice through her art in order to inspire as many people as possible. La Pimbeche is a brand constantly in evolution, we adapted through time and follow our community. This summer, it’s the notion of abundance that attracted the attention of the artist-founder. Let's be real, abundance is something a little fuzzy and somewhat intangible, but we are hearing a lot on it on social media these days. Here are our humble thoughts on the subject!
What is abundance?
At first, when we think about abundance, we tend to think of it as something that only applies to money or possessions, and that only the most privileged people in our society can live in abundance. But good news my friend, this is not true! In fact, not at all! When you think about it and focus on the real meaning of it, abundance is far from applying only to material assets. In fact, abundance is a large amount of something, whether it is tangible or not. Abundance therefore also applies to everything that cannot be touched and calculated, such as love, peace, passion, harmony, friendship, compassion, health (physical, mental, and spiritual), serenity, pleasure, happiness, freedom, etc.
When we understand that abundance is all around us and in all spheres of our lives, we realize that it is all a question of mindset and the way we see things. Is your glass of water half full or half empty? We've all heard someone say this quote to explain the notion of optimism and pessimism. The point is, being an optimist or a pessimist is not a trait you are born with. It is a CHOICE. We have the POWER to perceive our glass in the way we want. It's not about realism, but rather how we DECIDE to interpret what happiness is and how to achieve it. We are under the impression that money and material goods create happiness when they don't. Well, of course they can help a little! Taking a vacation anywhere at any moment you desire without having to worry about the financial repercussions, of course it's a big YASSS for us too! Who would say no? 😉 But basically, to succeed in seeing abundance and manifesting it in our lives, it's all mental work, baby! Let’s clarify something now, when we talk about seeing abundance around us, we don't mean to only be content with what we currently have. It’s important to appreciate what you already have in your life in order to manifest so much more abundance to reach your dreams! Everything is based on the law of attraction. By recognizing all the non-material wealth that surrounds us and by making decisions that nourish our happiness and that are aligned with our true self, this is how our perception of abundance develops. And this road will not be perfect, you will still need to work on this mental work process from times to times, but that’s okay!
Learning to embrace imperfections and letting go can take a huge weight off our shoulders. And all of a sudden, we realize how often we let the small things affect us and how our whole day can be around it.
You know, it's much easier to focus on THE thing that doesn't work well than on ALL the other things that are going so well, right? It's normal because our brain is conditioned to always want to solve problems in order to reach perfection, and this as quickly as possible. But you know what, it's the journey that counts, not the result. So, while you're on your way to your goals, take a break and come back to the here and now. Think about all the things you love in your life right now. Think about the success you have. Think about your true friends, even if you can only count them on one hand... or one finger. Think about all the things that make you feel good right now. Think about your new woolen sweater found at a local thrift store, or the one that cost you a full day of work. Think about your comfortable bed, or maybe not so much, but the one you fall asleep in every night. Change your mindset and think about what you HAVE, instead of what you MISS. You will realize that abundance is all around you. It’s in the smallest simplest things daily that we must cultivate our happiness. Afterwards, achieving our big goals and our big objectives become a bonus. It just amplifies our already existing happiness x1000. 😊
Our new collection
Speaking of abundance, we can't miss the opportunity to mention our new collection created around this concept! On our website, you can search by product type, but also by collection. Our latest collection is called "Abundance" and you can find it right here!
You will find 3 new products including a super soft polo sweat, an amazing baby blue t-shirt and a tote bag for your everyday errands.
For the design of the polo sweat and the t-shirt, the artist-founder wanted something fun and friendly, something that would make you smile. She immediately thought of the dolphin, a spiritual animal that symbolizes joy and cheerfulness, to accompany her slogan "Abundance is a mindset". There is also a money roll that has the word "LOVE" on it to show that not all transactions are only monetary. They can also be full of love and light.
In the same vibe, you will also find the beautiful tote bag with the slogan "Change tes pensées, tu changeras ta réalité" in French meaning that when you change the way you think, you have the power to change the situation. She chose flamingos enjoying the sun because they are as friendly as the dolphin. For the artist-founder, the sun symbolizes peace, creativity, harmony and also happiness. Same as on the polo and the t-shirt, you can read the word "LOVE" on the money bills.
Ok, we admit it, abundance and mindset are two subjects that inspire us a lot currently at La Pimbêche. And you, are you able to see abundance in your life?
