Morning girls. Yesterday, I received a text from a client saying “this mornings Simple Abundance is SO good!” This particular client has been reading Simple Abundance throughout our work together, as a way to start her day joyfully.
So, I wrapped up my own personal quiet time and grabbed the book. I read through, and new that I had to share it with the you beauties on the blog. SO, thank you my sweet client. You girls share so much wisdom with me–and you inspire so much (if not ALL) of the work that I do!
The book Simple Abundance is a daily read, somewhat like a devotional, but with stories to share. The topics vary from fashion, to home decor, to joy, to prayer, to walking as a form of mediation, and so on… The purpose of the book is to bring comfort and joy to each reader, daily.
On September 1st, the share of the day was all about the change that September opens us up to. Who else loves Fall/Autumn? I know I do — it’s my favorite season! One that feels full of alignment, rest, coziness, coffee, blankets, and joy… I love this season because I always feel most myself during this time.
Reading through SA yesterday, taught me that actually, MOST people experience change in this season. September is a time for growth, for doing more of what you want, and less of what you don’t want so that you can ultimately love the life you’re leading. Ah, how great is that?
The author, Sarah Ban Breathnach, says: “It seems to me that January resolutions are about will; September resolutions are about authentic wants.”
What do you want more or less of in your life, so that you can love the life you’re leading?
Ideas, shared by Breathnach, are: “seeing friends more, setting aside time to have adventures with your children while they still want your companionship, rekindling romance in your daily routine, calling a solitary hour a day your own, or just taking more walks in the dazzling sunshine.”
Let this autumn be a time of great growth for you. Don’t let it pass you by… Ask yourself: what do I want more of in this season? What do I want less of this season? What needs to be cleared? What support do I need? How will I feel if I meet these desires?
The goal? To love the life you’re leading.
Here are my personal Autumn resolutions:
- To make morning quiet time a priority every weekday morning, as it sets the tone for my entire day
- To be intentional about setting myself up for the next day, nightly
- To really get in touch with, one day at a time, what allows me to have the experience of JOY
- To give the most important areas of life my very best (relationships, spirituality, self-care, career), which would include clearing out the un-necessary “time-suckers” and things that drain me
- To have a heightened sense of compassion for myself and others, day to day, moment by moment
What about you? Will you share a few of your Autumn resolutions with me?
