words…in abundance

January, the month of new beginnings and cherished memories, beckons. This is the month to dream, to look forward to the year ahead and the journey within.

Oh…the journey and the dreams

Know that we already possess all the inner wisdom, strength and creativity needed to make our dreams come true.  This is hard for most of us to realize because the source of this unlimited personal power is buried so deeply beneath the bills, the car pool, the deadlines, the business trip, and the dirty laundry that we have difficulty accessing it in our daily lives.  When we can’t access our inner resources, we come to the flawed conclusion that happiness and fulfillment come only from external events.  That’s because external events usually bring with them some sort of change.  It’s good to have gratitude.abundance1

When we do a mental and spiritual inventory of all that we have, we realize that we are very rich indeed.  Gratitude gives way to simplicity – the desire to clear out, pare down, and realize the essentials of what we need to live truly well.  A sense of order in our life brings us harmony.  Harmony provides us with the inner peace we need to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each day, and beauty opens us to joy.  But just as with any beautiful needlepoint tapestry, it is difficult to see where one stitch ends and another begins.  So it is with Simple Abundance.

Pick up the needle and make the first stitch on the canvas of your life.  Be still and wait expectantly, knowing that in the warp of your daily life as it exists today are the golden threads of a simply abundant tomorrow.

The book is an uplifting and inspiring every day read which a friend gave me years ago…..but some things remain the same.
