Living a happy and fulfilling life is a worthy goal to aspire to. Shannon Ables’ book, The Simply Luxurious Life provides a road map of how to get there.
Rather than follow what society says we should be and do, Ms. Ables suggest a different path. A path engineered to suite each individual’s passions and compliment their talents.
What does a simply luxurious life look like?
It is placing your focus on quality over quantity in all areas of your life.
- eating the best quality food possible
- building small luxuries into your everyday life
- filling your mind with worthwhile pursuits
- staying in the know about the world around you
- presenting your best self to the world
- taking care of you mind and body with daily activities you enjoy
- making your home a sanctuary
Ms. Ables points out the everyone’s luxurious life will look a little different. So, how do you create your most luxurious life?
One needs to find your authentic self. What do you really value and enjoy? Once you understand what is important to you, it becomes simple to focus on those things and not become distracted with things that are not important to you.
Examples of a luxurious life are making time for daily enjoyments such as a cup of tea with an exquisite chocolate (just one or two, not the entire box), taking the time to watch your favorite show once a week or enjoying a daily walk.
Ms. Ables also advices readers of sound financial management. A good financial base is essential for a luxurious life. One can enjoy and have anything they want just maybe not all at once and there is great peace of mind to be found in living well but within your means.
It goes back to quality over quantity.
Simply Luxurious Life is a great guide to send you on your way to a happy and fulfilling life. It is a book I refer to often as well as reading The Simply Luxurious Life blog and listening to The Simple Sophisticate podcast.
