ABOUT ME I
My mom always said « Don’t borrow trouble! »
I know it’s easier said than done but what if we at least take a crack at breathing and letting go of our anxiety!?
Consider that our past teaches us that our future will turn out as it should.
Then we can rest.
As I continue to navigate my way through the wonders of minimalism, I’m discovering that I just love the idea of making room, in my life, for the things that matter most. Nothing quite like the approaching Spring season to motivate us to ‘lean in’ to the task of ridding our homes and our lives of the noise of clutter to free us up to do things that matter with the people in our lives that matter! Joshua Becker has some great ideas to get you going! It’s not enough to just acquire less…it’s actually about realizing that you want less. Big difference.

Some folks despise change…others live for it. I am one that falls somewhere in the middle (largely because I understand that it’s necessary). Change, if it’s my idea, is awesome! When it’s not, it makes me uncomfortable. But what I have come to know is that change comes in many forms and as I age I’ve allowed it to come into my life and transform me. Be it a job, a death, a love interest, an injury, a road closure I didn’t expect…even the recent spike in my insurance premium! These and countless other « changes » are pushing me in directions I might not have otherwise considered. These alterations of my existence force me to stop and take inventory…a self audit, if you will. When I look back at my « WTF » moments I seem to have emerged victorious and dare I say it, happier. I guess what I’m saying is let’s be done with fearing change and make friends with it.
Change is, after all, why we are who we are! Perhaps if you’re not where you thought you’d be in your life, you need to invite some change into your life. In the end, if you don’t like the change…you can change it again! Embrace it and let it bring you the life you are to be living!
Getting the call that a baby is ready for their « close-up » is pretty exciting…especially when they’re super new! When I arrived I was graciously greeted by Griffin, a handsome, visitor loving, golden lab through the front door window. While he didn’t let me in I was assured by his mighty tail wagging (okay, his entire body was wagging) that I was a welcomed guest and he would soon receive me with a bit of slobber and a handshake. Needless to say, Griffin was/is pretty proud of his new human sibling. This is Deacan
