Ive decided that instead of reading for information, that Id rather
read for inspiration. You see, I am an addict. Im addicted to buying
books, reading books, recommending books and surrounding myself with
books. Heck, Im even writing a book!
Like most addicts, my addiction started from a sense of lack in my life and
a belief that experts and authors had access to information that I
didnt. If I wasnt reading a self-help book, I was attending workshops and
seminars in hopes of getting some of that stuff the experts had, and at
some extent hoping that some of that stuff could help me change my life. I
suppose you could say that I was always searching for something magical
outside of myself; something to make me happy, make me feel worthy and to
help me feel a sense of inner peace.
Fast forward about ten years and I can honestly say that although my love
affair for books remains, it looks very different than it did back then.
For one thing, I now give myself permission to read books other than
nonfiction. The old I need fixing had me convinced that I could not waste
precious time reading something frivolous like Emily Dickenson for fear of
missing something important. If there wasnt a purpose in my reading, I
said forget it. I can still hear those old voices in my head saying,
Lifes too short, cant you see Im in a race here? Wasting time is not an
option! Thank goodness I matured and embraced my wisdom to know that if
reading a fiction story makes me feel good, then thats good enough for me!
If all the answers to
lifes questions reside within you, then I no longer need to focus on
things outside of myself to make me feel better. I only need to look
within. What that means for me is reading for inspiration rather than for
information. Right or wrong, I find reading nonfiction these days leaves me
feeling either overwhelmed (Oh my, here are 101 new ways to do such and
such that I need to try out), frustrated (Geez! I already knew that!), or
just simply tired (Okay, Im sleepy here, Ive read this sentence 4 times
and I still dont get it!).
As I give myself permission to enjoy new and brilliant
works of fiction, I anticipate the new worlds I will see, the new people I
will meet and the fresh experiences I will have through the characters and
plots that await me. And in the end, I will come full circle back home.
Home to the Wise Woman who lives within me who knows that I am perfect just
the way I am!
I invite you to join me along with other
women who want to connect in wisdom, joy, love, laughter and grace. To
explore our hearts desires and to discover all of us in creating a
brilliant tapestry of diversity, brilliance and magic.

Moving On: Creating Your House of Belonging With Simple Abundance by
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Building on the success of Sarahs previous books, Moving On
expresses a new-age inclusiveness that allows people of all faiths and
belief systems to enjoy her positive outlook on life.
Inspired by her own life experiences and requested by avid
Ban Breathnach readers eager for another volume, Sarah helps readers to
understand themselves and to use those insights to create a home that truly
suits their spirits and their lives.
"We do not know how to move on," Sarah observes. "We have
learned to let go, but not move on." This keen insight differentiates this
book from other self-help books dealing with life changes.
Sarah helps readers cope with what she calls, "the myriad
demands of uprooting ones life," and teaches them to not only move, but to
finally create what she calls, "your own house of belonging."
Like the other books in Sarahs acclaimed Simple
Abundance series, Moving On is what Sarah calls "part meditation,
how-to-manual, and memoir."
