Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy says that today is the perfect day to indulge in one of her favourite pastimes. She suggests you get $25 from the bank in $5 notes and place them in the pockets of all your coats and jackets. Now forget about it. The next time you wear a coat and find $5 in the pocket laugh and let it remind you that each day that you love, honour and respect your own unique point of view, you’re a step closer to finding a fortune. When you find your $5 notes remember to treat yourself generously and do something out of the ordinary that you normally wouldn’t do that will lift your spirits. She offers some ideas to spend your find on below.
- Buy one beautiful flower for your desk
- Enjoy a French pastry with your morning coffee
- Stop in at a fancy salon and get yourself some almond scented shampoo
