"Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
–Sarah Ban Breathnach
Back in 1995, I was gifted a book that
changed my life...
It was called:
Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach
As a mom with 2 little ones; back to back babies (a year apart)
I was told this treasured tome would help me
through the challenging period of
Although I didn't have much time to read;
this little book had little snippets that were easy to consume
in a stolen 5 or 10 minutes...
My friend was right-
this little book was like the comforting shoulder of a friend;
whom you could lean on when you felt overwhelmed,
sad, or just plain off.
The book was was like magic
it was the
Gift of Grace.
In the years since, my copy was well worn;
the pages tabbed,
quotes used in my subsequent writings.
in a fit of "marie kondo" style cleaning;
I gave that book away.
Looking back, I feel like it was akin
to giving away a journal;
a slice of that time in my history.
But, don't worry-
those fond memories, lessons and feelings
haven't left me.-
they are the foundation that lies
underneath it all!
I ask you to search your own heart of
fond memories, times and important books
that made an impact on your life.
These memories make up the tapestry
that has made us who we are today-
And, moving FORWARD
into the New Year;
Let's all become Conscious Creators
What do you want to create?
Have a great week filled with LOVE, PEACE, JOY
