musings + adventure along the path
The Abundance Model quote, from a beautiful book, Recipes from The Herbalist’s Kitchen: Delicious Nourishing Food for Lifelong Health and Well-Being by Brittany Wood Nickerson really spoke to me to share. Although this applies to nourishment and food, it has overall applications too:
“So often when we talk about our diet and our health, we talk about what not to do: what not to eat and why not, how not to be and why not, and what is wrong with the foods we eat. In these situations, our relationship with health becomes about establishing self-control and our thoughts become more focused on doubt, lack, and negativity. When we direct our energy and attention to what we want to do, what we are doing, and what we can easily and sustainability include in our life and in our diet, it is much easier to succeed because we are acknowledging ourselves for our capabilities and our accomplishments rather than our failures or limitations. With this “abundance model” in mind, over time you may find that your old attachments, self-criticisms, and “what not to do” list just sort of disappears. You will so busy being nourished by all these great additions to your life that the things that are not serving you just naturally fall away.”
food for thought….
To our wild magic lives,
See you soon for another Rambling….”
