Ever notice how during the summer or the holidays, everything seems to unravel?

The house is a mess. You aren’t getting anything done. Your own personal needs are on the back burner.

…and you start to feel a teensy bit overwhelmed. Or resentful. Or out of balance.

This used to be a big problem for me. 

My husband actually pointed out that I had breakdowns at predictable times each year.

How many times have you forgotten to…     Start the crockpot?     Make that phone call?     Add something to the calendar?     Order that thing you needed from Amazon?     Pick up something you needed while you were at the store?

The key is to catch it as you think of it, and toda...

It sounds cliché, but I’ll say it anyway….can you believe the holidays are here again?!

Black Friday is around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about those gift lists.

But maybe before we start filling up our shopping carts this year, we might want to pause and ask ourselves a few critical questions, like:

"Where will we put this?"

"Will they REALLY use this?"

"And what could we give instead?"

This...

I bet you can finish this sentence:

“If you can’t do something right…”

"Don’t do it at all."

Mmm….I strongly disagree. This is one of the most toxic mindsets I see. 

Perfectionism likes to parade around as something inspirational and helpful, but if you look behind the curtains it’s all about fear — fear that you might not do it right, fear that it might not look just right, and fear that you just don’t have what it takes.

    If you don’t love routines, you probably think routines kill all the fun. 

    Who wants to stick around home and clean and do laundry when there are so many better things to do?

    Even if you are routine-resistant, you may be surprised to learn how much of your life already consists of routines – and why your brain actually craves them. 

    Think routines keep you trapped? Think again. 

    Routines don’t restrict freedom. They create it.

    Let’s talk about the reality that there is literally not enough time in the day to do all that you need to get done. And how you wish you could clone yourself a dozen times so for once you could actually reach the end of your to do list.

    This is a time management issue, and one I can’t wait to talk to you about. Because with the perfect analogy I can help you look at time in a whole new way – and give you the big picture view of wh...

    Remember that Adam Sandler movie from years ago called “Click?” Where he found a universal remote that could fast forward through all the hard parts of life, so he could skip the messy middle and just get to show up at the end when everything was easy again?

    It would be so great to get your hands on a remote like that to fast forward through all the work and just have everything be organized right NOW.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have t...

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.
