“The greatest wealth is health.”
Since retiring from teaching, I no longer have a proper job and my income is much reduced. However, I am reminded each and every day that abundance is not about money…
I have more free time and energy to enjoy:
- cooking and trying out new recipes,
- spending time with family and friends,
- pottering in my garden,
- writing my blog, reading new blog posts, commenting,
- learning new skills,
My health is improving bit by bit and I am really enjoying LIFE.
Last week, I was drawn to re-read Julia Cameron’s wonderful book “The Prosperous Heart.” It a great workbook for assessing true abundance.
Synchronicity is a funny thing and as I picked up the book my phone rang. I took a call from a dress exchange. A dress that I had placed with them several months before had just sold!
I travelled to town to collect my big bonus, then visited my local library. The librarian asked me “Would you be interested in joining our readers group? The classes are free.”
I have been researching possible leisure classes for autumn, so I said a big “Yes” and received this month’s reading – ” All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr – which won the Pullitzer Prize for fiction in 2015.
I enjoyed the book so much I was moved to tears – it is an incredible story set during World War 11. If it crosses your path, I urge you to read it.
