Don't hold back

I've started Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach again this year.  Today's message really hits home.  She tells us not to hold back.  If you've got good china, use it.  don't you feel better when you fix your hair, dress a little nicer?  do we do that only for other people? 

Enjoy each day.  Treat yourself as someone special you should look nice for.  Set the dinner table and light a candle and enjoy your meals as if each one were a special occasion.

Don't hold back on life waiting for the special occasion.  You are special every day, treat yourself as best as you can through this life's adventure.

So true. Both my grandmas came from poor backgrounds but did good in their lives....when they died each of them had so many beautiful things "saved" back in boxes to use for something "special"....I learned at a young age not to do that! If you have it, use it.

One of my very favorite books! Thanks for reminding me. It's somewhere in the house, I'll go searching!

Love, A.M.
