Do What Matters. Do ONLY What Matters

Easier said than done, I know.  I have found that asking myself these two questions before any task can free up some much needed time and takes the "busyness" out of my life. How special it was today to be able to make dinner. I had the day off and wanted to cook something that … Continue reading Do What Matters. Do ONLY What Matters

Life is Still Good Even When It’s Hard

I have to admit that sometimes it's hard to believe in having an abundant life when circumstances are tough. I'm going through one of those times right now.

How to Plan NOTHING & Get Stuff Done.

This week I was on vacation from my day job. I had my choice of what I wanted to do: work on my Thirty-One Business; work on my Organizing Business or plan NOTHING. I opted for the latter.

Truthful Living

Tuning In To What Matters

I had a plan. I really did.  But I'm sitting here tonight, in front of my screen, unprepared for what I was going to write about for the weekly Tuesday Abundant Living post. That's okay. I mean, it's not as if I haven't been doing my research. The thing is, I am still doing my … Continue reading Tuning In To What Matters

Want Your Kids To Have a Better Education? Stay Organized

  Kids & Clutter: (not)Too Cool for School As a childcare provider, the first thing I do when I get to work is bring the house to order. Dirty dishes go in the sink; counters and the stove are wiped clean. Floors swept; dishwasher is unloaded. Laundry is started. Toys are put away.
