簡單富足Simple abundance

我以為這本書是兒子為我買的禮物,但是其實是我的美籍朋友Eddie請Roger帶回來給我的.  我以為是Eddie送我的書,結果又不是.原來是她的朋友Lana送的.



Lana 在書中附上一張玫瑰花形狀的卡片,我打開
一看,上面寫著: Joy- This was written for you.
From A long distance admirer! of yours












哇!想不到我竟然有粉絲!但她到底是誰呢?  我趕緊與Eddie 聯絡,原來那一年的感恩節我们一家在Eddie家做客,她也是受邀的賓客之一.沒想到只有短短一次的聚會她竟然記得我.







當她聽Eddie說,我那時對生活或工作有失落感,她就從遙遠的美國輾轉託Eddie 及 Roger 給我帶書來並寫卡片鼓勵我. 當我收到此禮物及卡片,真讓我有落淚的感動!怎是比我周遭的親人更關心瞭解我呢?!






實在很感謝她. 這本集合了三百六十六篇的文章讓我能依日期賞讀外,也讓每一天有新的心情.每篇文章都以一首詩當引言點出應思考的觀點.書中也告訴讀者如何在日常生活中呈現出真實的自我……為自己挑選出最美味的蔬菜,在跳蚤市場尋寶,在家裡自我靜思,佈置平衡的空間,依循季節與年歲的節奏...等等.自己便能真實的簡單地就依自己所擁有的資源下走向一種更平衡更快樂與更完滿的生活.



作者Sarah Ban Breathnach 寫作出書多年後有感自己在朋友、親人、生活、金錢、創造靈感等都遇到瓶頸深受其苦。她也深信所有的婦女都會有此遭遇,所以她以自省後寫下此書。也依簡單富足這主題架設一個網站讓全美婦女能上網參與討論.



她網站的首頁圖案有鮮花、咖啡杯、水果、信件、茶壺、卡片..這些都是婦女每天會接觸的物品.
 


 

平日接觸這些用品時,心可要寬廣無限才行.


雖此書已出版多年,可是好書不寂寞可以長期陪伴,而隔海傳遞的友誼我更珍惜永久珍藏於心.

Amazon.com 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.
