Romancing the Ordinary: A Year of Simple Splendor
Sarah Ban Breathnach - 2002
Organized as a saunter through the year, "Romancing the Ordinary" celebrates the spirituality of the senses, seasonally and monthly. Ban Breathnach believes that women are endowed not with five senses but with seven. In addition to rediscovering sight, sound, scent, taste, and touch, readers will come to cherish their sense of "knowing" -- a woman's intuitive sense -- and "wonder," her sense of rapture and reverence.Writing in the style so beloved by her millions of readers, and drawing on myth, literature, film, music, and drama, Ban Breathnach encourages each woman to discover what moves her to tears, makes her blood rush to her head, her heart skip a beat, and her soul sigh. Interwoven with the text are seasonal indulgences intended to restore weary feminine souls -- recipes, rituals, decorating, fashion, and gardening hints. By encouraging her to delight in the often overlooked gifts of every day -- from the aroma of simmering homemade spaghetti sauce to the sensation of freshly laundered linen against bare skin -- "Romancing the Ordinary" is sure to help every woman fall in love with Life.

By following the advice contained in the book, there is no doubt that all will benefit personally and successfully across life's path.” (City Mayor, California) How do you find real happiness? It can be difficult to keep going when times are tough, or when the choices others make set you back or hinder your progress toward your goals. Here are the real-life, doable actions and attitudes that help those around you build up values based on commonly held, easy-to-understand virtues and precepts. People from all walks of life use this book every day to dramatically improve their happiness. “One can feel at times like a spinning leaf blown along a dirty street, one can feel like a grain of sand stuck in one place. But nobody has said that life was a calm and orderly thing: it isn't. One isn't a tattered leaf nor a grain of sand: one can, to greater or lesser degree draw his road map and follow it.” —L. Ron Hubbard When one follows these principles and assists others to do so, one’s own happiness and survival can be improved.
