Tidying Up.

Marie Kondo has become the organizational guru with the launch of her new Netflix series. So I jumped on the bandwagon this past week to see what all the hype was about. I immediately loved this show not only because I purged everything when I chose to travel the world and it felt SO freeing, but also because it brings about 4 important points for living the life you crave.

Simply Me.

Over two years ago, I found myself stuck. I’d been divorced over a year and still couldn’t find my way in this new world. I distinctly remember NOT remembering who I was anymore. I’d been part of a “we” for so long that I didn’t remember what it was like to be ME. Simply me. 

The Real Gift.

To me, the Christmas season is the most wonderful time of year. As I sit here, I’ve got a fire roaring in the fireplace where my stockings are neatly hung, and the smell of balsam fir lingers in the air as the lights on my tree twinkle at me. It’s blissful. Why then, did this season previously give me so much anxiety?

The Art of Thriving.

With a little grit and a lot of grace, I kicked my fears of "never being good enough" and "what if I fail" to the curb as I set off on a brave adventure to transform my life. My adventure found me quitting my cushy corporate job and selling every possession to travel solo around the world. You can and will thrive, too, if that’s what you choose!

My mom had a mouse problem. She’d probably kill me if she knew I was telling you that. However, seeing as she’s one of my three subscribers, she’ll find out soon enough! Mice are typical when you live on an acreage in rural America. (Side note for those of you who don’t know me, “acreage” for my mom is 3 acres, but let’s roll with it ) In light of her problem, I helped clean out her kitchen cabinets a couple of weeks ago. You see, her kitchen cabinets were the mice’s playground so they needed a good cleaning. 

Dearest Winter,

Last Sunday, I woke up in a panic thinking I wouldn’t have time to tackle my to-do list for the day. But alas, I did. It was as if time slowed for me to enjoy my Sunday Funday. The sun hung a little longer in the sky than the previous day. The temperatures were warm upon my skin. The tulips were a plenty. Spring was in the air. She’s been knocking at my door and I’ve got to let her in.
