Several months ago I read The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, which was an adorable and charming book about getting your home life and clutter under control before you die. It sounds morbid, but we don't often think about the mess we'll leave behind for our loved ones. This book was short and can… Continue reading Room For What I Love
Everyday I fail at being the person that I want to be. I want to be gentle and kind. To be forgiving and understanding. To accept others as they are and not push them to change. I'm not so good at being that person, but I keep trying. And the positive? I'm able to recognize… Continue reading Okay with the topsy-turvy?
Even with the long days of summer, I can't seem to get things done. A few tasks continue to be just out of my grasp even though I am desperately reaching to get them done. Blogging, for instance. I love it. I miss it when I don't do it. I'll go through my day and… Continue reading Mid-July Check In
In The Distant Hours, the Blythe sisters worry that they won't recognize when they officially become "old" so they come up with a list of "old people" characteristics that will help them know. One that has stuck with me: a person is old when they have to sit down to put on their underwear*. Well,… Continue reading
PROLOGUE: I’ve been trying to publish this post since Tuesday, but have been having technical difficulties with my blog. Something about missing SSL certificates, whatever the heck that is.

To do this, I’ve been trying to narrow down my extra-curricular activities. The hope… Continue reading Year of Abundance: How to Work in Distractions in a Mindful Way

Click on over to find lots of different people sharing the things that are saving their lives right now.

Did you realize that last night was a Blue Moon? That means that it was the second full moon in a calendar month, but last night's moon was extra special. Not only was it a blue moon, but it was a blood moon (which means the moon had a red tint) and there was… Continue reading Blue Moon Reading — Attracting Abundance
2018 is about embracing abundance for me! Today's post is one that feels impossible to write, but I think is necessary to dig into. Inevitably, this will be a sloppy and incomplete essay because I can't seem to figure it out. But I'm going to try and I hope that you will stay with me… Continue reading Abundance – Why I Buy?
My 2018 Word of the Year is Abundance and I'm reserving Fridays to explore that concept. I originally chose abundance because I am overwhelmed with the amount of debt and stuff that I have and want to learn to focus on what truly makes me happy without buying things or spending extra money. I'm hoping to… Continue reading Abundance: Taking Stock of My Hidden Solutions
