There's a new baby at our house! Please help me welcome Daisy, a Chihuahua blend, to our family. She's only two months old and weighs just under 5 lb. Daisy's very sweet and has learned quite a bit in the past few days since we brought her home from the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Our boxer, Jenny, passed away last summer, at the age of 14. We decided that our next dog would be a rescue, and thought that a mix might be a good choice from a health standpoint. When we saw this tiny dog at the animal center recently, we were smitten.
The Prosperous Heart: Creating a Life of "Enough", an audiobook by Julia Cameron with Emma Lively, from Laura's blog, Laura's Reviews, during her generous audiobook giveaway this summer. Determined to delve into this audiobook, I listened to The Prosperous Heart in my car, mostly while I drove solo, on short and long trips.
As I began to listen to The Prosperous Heart, I felt more prosperous almost immediately. It related well to the experiences and feelings I was having a few weeks ago, to my thoughts and concerns. This audiobook helped me to worry less, and to focus more on the abundance of good things in my life.
The Prosperous Heart is filled with wisdom about prosperity--and so much more. I relished the time I spent listening to this audiobook; it was surely quality time. Author and narrator Julie Cameron's voice and words were soothing and inspiring. Her descriptions of the joys of walking brought to mind recent wonderful walks I've taken, and the little surprises I've encountered, such as the magical, melodious church bells that greeted me one Saturday morning on my walk downtown. There are many wonderful ideas in this book, and it was a pleasure to listen to. A feeling of prosperity may result from discovering a hidden chrysalis, or finding that the pair of flip flops you bought on sale are extremely comfortable; little treasures add up. Although I may not write "morning pages", I will, at the very least, count my blessings (that may be an overused phrase, but it does make us think about and appreciate what we have). The book's comprised of 5 CDs, which seemed a bit daunting to me initially, but I discovered that they went by quickly, I was always eager to listen to more, and I've already listened to a few of the CDs more than once. I think I'll "reread" this audiobook whenever I want to revisit and enrich my sense of prosperity.
