Be a Curator


Every year I pick a new daily reader book to start my morning spiritual practices with.  This year I decided to revisit Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Simple Abundance.

On January 1st she wrote about being “the curator of your own contentment.”  I have fallen in love with this phrase.  A curator (from Latin: curare meaning "take care") is a manager or overseer. Traditionally, a curator works for an institution like a gallery, or museum,  and is a content specialist responsible for the institution's collections as well as being involved with the interpretation of the material.

So Sarah is saying:  Be the one who “takes care of” your contentment - be a content specialist responsible for your own contentment.

I imagine my mind as my own museum.   I see rows and rows of display cases and filing cabinets.  Some cases and cabinets are old and dusty and some have been visited often.  Each is filled with memories of events – who was there, where we were, what we were doing, The colors, sounds and the feelings those events evoked. 

These are the stories of my life.  As the curator, I honor all the stories, the good and the bad, and as the curator it is up to me to interpret those stories as to how they applied to my life when they happened, and how they fit into the context of today.  As I examine my collection I have to ask myself - Are the ones that have been visited often filled with tales of woe and victimization or love and happiness?  What about the dusty ones?

As curator, I get to choose what’s on display at every moment.  I get to name my collection – and right now, I choose to name my current gallery showing “Contentment.”   How delightful this is!  I know that what I focus on I get to experience more of, so I eagerly anticipate new stories for my collection.

How about you?


How grateful I am to remember there’s only One Life – that Life is Divine Energy moving through me, responding to my thoughts and feelings, setting the Law of Attraction in action, creating new memories – new stories of my Life – at every moment.

I am the curator of my contentment.  Knowing this, I now declare that every experience I have fills me with contentment.  In my family life, my work life, my social life, my activities are geared to making new stories of happiness and well-being.  As I declare this, every corner of the Universe is working for me in the highest ways possible to make this so!

I am so grateful for all I have ever had, all I have now, and all I will have.  I recognize it all as the workings of the Divine in, as and through me, even when I didn't think it was.  I am now experiencing greater good, greater God.  Joyfully I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are so now.
And so it is. 

A wonderful compilation of insights, messages and affirmations for each day of the year!
