Simple Abundance

I'm reading a daybook. I started it in January and I read it once a day. I call it my pink bible. I LOVE it. Part of today's entry...

Psychologist Susan Jeffers suggests we "take a risk a day--one small or bold stroke that makes you feel great once you have done it."
Today, take a real risk that can change your life: start thinking of yourself as an artist and your life as a work in progress. Works in progress are never perfect. But changes can be made to the rough draft during rewrites... Another color can be added to the canvas. Art evolves, so does life... The beautiful and authentic life you are creating for yourself and those you love is your art. It's the highest art. "Since you are like no other being ever created from the beginning of time, you are incomparable," Brenda Ueland reminds you.
Hold that thought.

YOU ARE LIKE NO OTHER BEING EVER CREATED. Do you really get that? I am starting to. Wow.
I'll be back tonight to tell you what risk I end up taking. I can't wait to discover it...I want to hear about yours too.

I worked my way through SA several years ago and LOVED it! I ought to pull it out again and refresh. What a great experience.
