Have you read Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Simple Abundance?
Home in New Jersey right now, and I cannot believe I haven’t delved into it more prior to now. My grandma gave this book to my mom for Christmas in 1996 (we always write a note on the first page of a gifted book in our family ), and Mom has read it multiple times over the years….you know that because of the variety of ‘bookmarks’ she has stuck in various pages: notes from friends, a flyer for a 2002 play I was in, a photo of me at the age of 4 (well that was an old one she must have had lying around!), praises from those who came to see her adult theatrical debut as a ‘Mama‘ in Fiddler on the Roof… (it’s true!)
Anyway, one page of this book is enough inspiration and peace to put a smile on your face before falling asleep after a busy day.
“Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simply abundant world awaits. (January 11)”
“Every day offers us simple gifts when we are willing to search our hearts for the place that’s right for each of us. (January 15)”
“Usually, when the distractions of daily life deplete our energy, the first thing we eliminate is the thing we eliminate is the thing we need the most: quiet, reflective time. Time to dream, time to contemplate what’s working and what’s not, so that we can make changes for the better. (January 17)”
“If you want your life to come together, you have to start treating yourself better.”
“Your heart will always tell you what’s working and what’s not.”
(she says green is ‘the color of abundance’)
I mean, pretty much everything she writes is quotable
