Don't Say I Wish

6 Easy Steps To Staying Organized

A Simple Checklist For Cleaning

It’s of no surprise that women tend to have a greater responsibility when it comes to domestic chores.

Goals and Priorities Diary

Achieve Your Goals With Goals & Priorities Diary

Make This The Year You Achieve Your Goals What gets in the way of you achieving your goals?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

It’s Not The Definition Of Insanity But It’s Still Pretty Crazy

The Definition Of Insanity – Not So Much The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Then doing the same thing over and over again and expecting […]

Discipline – Now With 80% Less Willpower

This month my word of the month is discipline. Not the scary, willpower-y kind of discipline. I’ve never been good at that. Anything enforced immediately brings out the rebellious child in me. I can’t diet because as soon as there’s something I can’t have it’s the thing I want most in the world. Even if I had zero interest […]

Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway

I Did A Very Scary Thing (Or, Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway)

This week I did something that scared the pants off me. Fortunately not my actual pants, but my figurative pants. My figurative capri pants. I sang a song. In front of a relative stranger. With my neighborhood-cats-are-crying singing voice. Why, you may ask, would I inflict this aural abuse on someone? One of my personal […]

2013 My Personal Goals

2013: My Personal Goals

I’m not one of those people who starts January 1 with New Year’s resolutions or clear, well-defined goals. December is always a busy month and early January is when I do my annual declutter. My head’s not in a goal-setting place. But by about mid-January the combination of a fresh year, a decluttered home, and […]

Slim your body in 2013

Make 2013 The Year You Get Slim. Yes Really.

Here’s a radical idea. You know all the years you hoped you’d get slim? All the years you made attempts? Let’s make 2013 the year you do it. Deep inside you know you can. People with greater challenges than you have done it. And you’ve done harder things. Um, childbirth? Marriage? Working for years for that that […]
