Do You Know You?..

I can usually find this book within arms reach on my side of the bed

A few years ago a friend gave my a copy of this book by Sarah Ban Breathnach It changed my life. Why? Because is helped begin a journey to find out who I am, what I love and to help me realize what I have. I am still on this journey but believe that I live my life being more aware each day. This author has taught me to believe in myself. This book is always by my bed and I have given many copies to friends. The layout is set around the 365 days of the year with suggested tasks to do at the end of each month. Each entry is about 1 page long-ish and a very easy read in bed each night before sleep overtakes..
Many pages and marked for later reference...

Some of you may have very contented lives, know where your path is going and know what you like and love. But, for some of you, there may be a little ache on the edge of your heart that you are only aware of sometimes. For me I think because of having so many roles, being so busy, having dependent little ones... that I sort of....  forgot myself. I forgot how to be present in my own life. I had nothing to say when everything else was peeled away. This beautiful author taught me how to take deep breaths and just 'be'. There is an epidemic in the world today of low self esteem, of low body image and low self love. Many of you are amazing women and your friends would agree. But do you? Do you think you are special? You are you know...

This is what Sarah says about Simple Abundance:
Embrace its gentle lessons, savor its sublime common sense, dare to live its passionate truth, and share its extraordinary and exhilarating gift with every woman you encounter: the authentic self is the Soul made visible...
After reading that how can you resist a little look? I am going to be doing some posts on the pages that resonate within me. Go out and buy this book or borrow it from the library. You will be very please that you did. I promise...


 Ciao for now...

  2. Hey Martha,

    Thank you for reminding me that I have this book on my 'inspiration' shelf.
    It and the accompanying journal were my constant companions several years back and although I hadn't completely forgotten it, it's nice to be nudged to dig it out.
    I'm off to do that now.
