Book Description

"Nourishing Thoughts - The Little Book of Wise Sayings" is a small book of thoughtful sayings, and short tales that will teach you how to nourish the “self within” and become whole. Each segment begins with a life statement and ends with a Nourishing Thought coming from an eclectic mix of writers, historical figures, actors, and ancient spiritual sages. From Mark Twain to Buddha to Katharine Hepburn to Julius Caesar, to a surprisingly, serious statement made by the Queen of Comedy, Lucille Ball, the sayings offer practical advice on living a nourishing, positive life. Each “nourishing thought” will help you towards having your own “great sense of self.”

This holistic way of living your life is beneficial to all within your sphere. It has a healthy domino effect. Like the abundant spread of wildflowers in meadows, the seeds from loving and caring for yourself will subtly bring their beauty to everyone in your life. Your healthy attitude will influence everything in your world.

Your spirit and emotional self needs healing, love, and support. Kristen Houghton's book teaches us how to be gentle, kind, and loving to the one person in our lives we seem to neglect - our own selves! Caring for and making time for yourself is a spiritually loving act and a practical one as well. Without this inner nourishment our bodies and our minds can become infected with the disease of neglect.

The quotes, stories of positive people, and the sayings in "Nourishing Thoughts - The Little Book of Wise Sayings", will set you on a path that will enable you to lead a healthy, positive life.
