9780553506624: Simple Abundance

Sarah Ban Breathnach believes that people are scaling down their expectations of what constitutes the good life. And they should be! A more slender purse doesn't mean we can't still live a rich, rewarding life. We can reclaim our futures by rediscovering what it is that truly makes us happy. By providing a meditation for each day of the year, Sarah illuminates our journey of self-discovery and shows us that simplicity does not imply doing without - true simplicity illuminates our lives from within. She teaches us how to reorder our priorities. Carve out time for the personal pursuits that bring contentment. Savour the joy of simple pleasures. Restore serenity to daily endeavours. Delight in the everyday elegies of home and garden. Between the pages of this book, readers will learn how to nurture their own creativity, nourish their imaginations and celebrate their own styles. Not only does each day have a meditation, but Sarah has also found the perfect quotes, poems, reflections and excerpts from women's magazines and homemaking books from the late 19th century through to the 1950s which are featured throughout, giving the reader a unique scrapbook of hope and inspiration that is bound to become a treasured resource of ideas, advice and comfort.

Review:

This book features 366 essays penned from a woman's perspective. Sample topics include gratitude, harmony, self-nurturing, positive body image, the importance of scented linen closets, and many others. Each essay sports a pithy quote from (surprise!) the likes of Kahlil Gibran. Viewed uncritically, it's hard to argue with Simple Abundance's earnest admonitions to appreciate life, in all its messy imperfect excellence. And the fact that serenity and happiness are each in dreadfully short supply can excuse some of the treacly writing. But Breathnach sometimes lapses into what can only be described as her "Martha Stewart on Prozac" voice, and the results are aggravating to the extreme: "If you've been hesitant to strike up a reciprocal relationship with your guardian angel, don't be." Fans of guardian angels will greet these feel-good essays every morning with the rising sun, a cup of mint tea, and a bluebird chirping on the windowsill, and be happy. Skeptics will prefer their coffee very black.

About the Author:
