Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach is a wonderful book I’ve had for many years and I still take if off the shelf every now and then because there are so many beautiful kernels of wisdom and inspiration. Just this week, I picked it up and randomly opened it to the page for February 12 … Once Upon a Time You Trusted Yourself. I was so touched all over again that I wanted to share this idea with you.
“Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live.”
- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
“Today, try to find a picture of yourself when you were about ten … travel back in time … age ten was probably the last time you trusted your instincts … Try to contact the girl you once were. She’s all grown up now. She’s your authentic self and she’s waiting to remind you how beautiful, accomplished and extraordinary you really are.”
In preparing for our upcoming Life on Purpose Retreat our team was looking for just the right image of a woman filled with purpose and inspiration. It wasn’t as easy as it should have been, but we finally chose this beautiful photograph. We felt the power and saw the beauty. Looking closer, we realized it wasn’t a woman, but a girl. At that age when we were still so sure of our own power, before we gave it away or hid it. At Flourish we’re out to reclaim that power for ourselves once again. Fearless, feisty, fabulous, flourishing. Come join us!
