Little Gifts of Sustainable Contentment Paperback – July 10, 2010
|New from||Used from|
Passionate and insightful, fresh and spiritual. Celebrates the incredible joys of the human experience. Many writers try to capture life's universals... but C.J. Good truly succeeds in what is destined to become an indispensable resource in the self-help category. The writing is wonderful, and the fusion of good advice, thought-provoking ideas and human experience makes it a winner. --Tobi Y. Ching (UK)
A specific message emerges, and the book becomes very moving in unexpected ways. There is a lot of pertinent spirituality which should not put off those who have no interest in spiritual concepts. The open-mindedness of the author gives a richness and depth to ideas about beliefs and practical issues of being human. I found it a very subtle book, and one that slowly enthralled me. It never becomes monotonous. It is like a meditation on the nature of life and relationships. I found it quite extraordinary, and definitely to be recommended to anyone looking for a more thoughtful read. If you haven't read it yet you are in for an absolute treat! If you have, you don't need me to tell you how glorious it is. --Leslie Robin (New York)

This is a book filled with a year's worth of 1-minute daily reflections. The seven categories of wellbeing on which the reflections are based on include: emotional, financial, intellectual, social, occupational, physical and spiritual.
Connie Good's vivid writing engages all of your senses. You will smell the lavender, hear the birds and taste the chocolate as she describes the path to create some serenity in our hurried & busy lives. You will learn how creating a change in the way you think in one area of your life will create a ripple effect and improve another area that was suffering.
Some of the wisdom I have received from my daily readings of the reflections include:
The antidote for fear is gratitude.
I have a wastebasket for troubles.
So many adversities turn out to be blessings.
Gratitude is the key to true happiness.
You get more of what you focus on.
This evergreen book of daily reflections is one you will keep on your night stand or in your car for a quick dose of inspiration. Although each nugget of insight is dated with a specific day of the year, you do not need to read them in any specific order. I enjoy playing "Little gift's roulette" with this book. I randomly open the book to a page and begin reading. I am always amazed that I seem to choose the daily reflection that is right for me on that day.
This book helps you ask yourself the questions that will help you grow and achieve the dreams you have long forgotten about. Don't wait until your life is perfect. Get this book now and being the transformation to living the life you dream of someday having. This book will also make a great gift for friends and family members.
I found this to be a powerful addition to my own library as something to pick up when I feel stalled. Each reading will give you something to think about and will enrich your day. There are no prescribed affirmations or meditations here and that is the strength of the book - each reader can use Connie's words as a starting point to create a personal message.
Connie's style is soothing and thoughtful. The book is exactly what the title promises - a git of sustainable contentment.
