Can You Manifest Your Way to Success?

Lately, I’ve been having conversations with my children about manifesting. It must be trending as a thing to do.

Rachel scrolled through her Facebook feed, liking and sharing, liking and sharing but paused as she came upon another congratulations to me post from her friend Melanie.
