When the blues strike, Sarah Ban Breathnach in Simple Abundance advises readers to have a comfort box tucked away. She suggested having good-quality chocolates, a paper back by your favorite author and some luxury soap or bubble bath tucked in it.
That wouldn't work for me. I would eat the chocolates immediately and tuck into the book at once. I might save the soap. So I have to think of some other cheering items. I like magazines and those I can save. A box of hot chocolate might last for awhile. I have movies that I am waiting to watch. But my favorite item is a brand new floral journal that I'll keep on hand with a pretty floral pen. When I need them, out they come to be used as a gratitude jourmal or a diary.
What would be in your comfort box?
