Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism

Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism What are we saving “it” for anyway? If you would like to read all the posts in this series, click HERE. Yesterday I left off with the heart issues that contributed to my choice to seek simplicity. There were and are so many little thoughts that creep into my head/heart that are just so darn ugly…to use a descriptive word. Most of my  battles with “stuff” have been rooted in discontent, jealousy, and fear. Discontent is defined as “a restless desire or craving for something one does not have“. WOW! Talk about a smack to

Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism

Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism What are we saving “it” for anyway? Sharing why and how we chose to live a simple, minimalist life is turning into a series of posts. There is just so much to say . I hope you’ll follow along and maybe find some inspiration. Whenever I think about how we arrived to our “less is more” outlook, this Michael Card song comes to mind. Of course, the song is about coming to Christ and leaving our spiritual baggage behind. Still, I think leaving physical stuff behind can be nearly as freeing. The less “stuff” we are

Write 31 Days Or Not…An Update

Write 31 Days Or Not…An Update Part One Despite the challenge being to write for 31 days straight, I kind of knew the odds I could not post every, single day. I know and that is totally fine with me. I feel bad that so many that signed up are beating themselves up for missing a day . Of course, this confirms my issues with completing things, doesn’t it?? Honestly, I am sticking with the spirit of my commitment/participation in that I am actually getting “things” done. I am pleased with the progress I am making on my “31 Days of Getting

31 Days of Getting Things Done-Searching for a Readers’ Paradise

31 Days of Getting Things Done-searching for a readers’ paradise is on my to-do list today. Also, an update on the kitchen project at the bottom of this post. SO relieved to have gotten that done. I sure you will ALL sleep better tonight knowin’ i have a clean kitchen….buwahahahaha ! Where shall I sit to read my book?  To sit, in silence, and simply read…THIS truly is a novel idea <—yes this is a very bad pun. As a kid, I would rather do ANYTHING than read any day of the week. TV and hanging with my friends was my top

Scripture For A Sunday Afternoon-Psalm 115:15

Scripture For A Sunday Afternoon-Psalm 115:15 WHAT a gloriously gorgeous day! It was brisk, with a blue sky, bursts of fall everywhere…and to think I was able to hang with my men ALL weekend long. My oldest son {20} lives in NYC and has been home since Friday. He works for Video Games New York primarily working conventions around the country as well as Canada. {Shameless plug: if you have anyone in your life that is a vintage video game player, this is a one stop resource for all your needs} As this is nearly the end of his busy season,

31 Days of Getting Things Done-The Plan

Entering day 3 of 31 Days of Getting Things Done and I am already worrying about The Plan! I don’t want to over plan things because, as I said yesterday, over the past few years I developed this poor habit of over planning and getting little finished. How am I to balance this? By setting SMART goals. There is an acronym about goals that has been around the web for a while now:  S.M.A.R.T  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely Honestly, I have used this concept in the past regarding my healthy living goals since the first time I read

31 Day of Getting Things Done-The To-Do List

As I approach these “31 Days of Getting Things Done”, I realize I have an unnatural love of LISTS. The To-Do list in particular. Some days, I have several lists going at once….I am starting to see this is one of the reasons I struggle with completing  tasks/projects. There are just TOO many things on my to-do lists, so I end up giving small amounts of attention to many tasks. Does anyone else out there have this issue???? Please let me know I am not alone. Until a few years ago, I generally worked off of ONE to-do list. On it

31 Days of Getting Things Done

October has arrived and if you are a blogger or even visit blogs you KNOW what this means! Another installment of “31 Days of______________”. You can fill in the blank with a slew of ideas here, but the gist of it is to choose a topic to focus on for the 31 days of October, and then write about it each day.

The Nester, a home/lifestyle blogger and author of The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful. <affiliate link  She has a beautiful blog…I want
