Holiday Priorities

What are your holiday priorities? We all have them.  As we get closer to the actual day, or start of the season, we need to check in to see if we are on track to get all the preparations done in time.  Holidays are a stressful time for many people.  Getting everything done can be nerve wracking, depending on our individual standards. Hopefully you created a plan, did you? It’s always a good idea to have a plan. It can be as simple as jotting down tasks, prioritizing them, and then scheduling them in a planner.

Making Changes May Not be as Difficult as You Think

Some people dread making changes, others not so much.  I get it.  We get into our comfort zones especially as we age.  I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, ‘she’s set in her ways’.  There’s that comfort zone again. It’s called a comfort zone for a reason. We may not be happy in our current environment, but we know what to expect, so there’s a certain level of comfort in knowing what’s going to happen next whether we like it or not. Making changes just for the sake of change is not a good reason as far as I’m concerned. If [...]

Have you ever had to clear out a home to sell after a death?  If so, then you know how much there is to do. You also know that it’s an emotional journey.  We learn things about our loved ones that we didn’t know as we cull through their things.  These things are small pieces of their lives that live on through the memories they leave behind. Several years ago, I had to clear out a home to get it ready to sell after my aunt passed away.  I was her caregiver, although I didn’t live with her, for 8 [...]

I don’t have enough time!

“I’m too busy, I don’t have enough time!” It seems like everyone I talk to these days is saying this same thing. I understand. I feel the same way. Sometimes it feels like I’m on a runaway treadmill that simply won’t stop. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish everything on my list of things to do, or so it seems. You know that list, the one that you constantly add to and seem to never get everything on it checked off. So, maybe it’s not the actual list that makes us feel that we don't have [...]
