Scare City

by Scott Noelle

When you buy into the scarcity principle, you live in “Scare City”: a place where you’re always afraid of coming up short.

In Scare City, you can’t enjoy what you have — you’re too busy worrying about what you don’t have.

All the cups in Scare City are half empty.

Somehow, young children are largely immune to the distressing effects of living in Scare City...

  • They enjoy the abundant now while their parents worry about the lack of time.
  • They transform their homes into magical worlds while their parents worry about the lack of order.
  • They give and receive love endlessly while their parents carefully ration their limited supply.

To live the Good Life, you have to leave Scare City and go to a dance — a joyful, magical, healing dance where you release your fears and shake your booty like nobody’s watching: a‑BUN‑dance!

Are you willing to do A Bun Dance with your child? :)
