And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good. —John Steinbeck, East of Eden Today I did a liberating thing. I opened a box containing my version of Schrödinger’s Cat*. (* It’s a metaphorical box. There are no actual kitties of any kind in this post. If you got to this blog by looking for internet […]
It’s January 1 and I have to say, I have a good feeling about this year. Last year was a big bleurgh. I felt lost, with little sense of fun or passion. I was sleeping poorly, largely because I couldn’t breathe well at night. I felt tortured about work and what I should be doing. I was letting petty […]
It’s a lot of pressure being married to someone who never lies. Especially for me, as I’ve been known to resort to a fib, like, once or twice. Such as the time I was running late because my playlist shuffled up a string of great songs, and I stopped getting dressed to grab my hairbrush and belt out […]
Occasionally someone does something that’s designed to hurt you. You, in particular. Most likely because they are hurt or angry about something they believe you did to them. For the most part, though, the things people say and do are entirely about them. Motivated by their own desires and fears and life stuff and possibly […]
Recently I was chatting with a young friend about dressing sexy. She was lamenting how, when her youthful cohorts tried to dress sexily, they so often ended up looking, well, the opposite. The problem, she said, is that girlfriends often tell each other they look great, even when they really really don’t. It’s their way of being supportive. […]
Organized my presentation. I managed to clear out clothes that don’t fit, are too old, as well as shoes, jewelry. I pared things down to the point that what I have left fits well, looks good and I love to wear. This has been a most successful site for me. Thank you.
Thanks for making this simple! There are plenty of these type of plans out there but I needed KISS, Keep It Simple, Sweetie. The best part for me was “Move fast. Don’t over-think.” That’s me in a nutshell; dwell, dwell, dwell. I am very fond of gentle nudges and yours are the best!

I just started reading some of your posts and comments people have made and went into your website and just loved it…the way you write, your tips, some hilarious sayings and quotes and your comments on happiness and how going into action makes us so happy. Lots of food for thought as I comtemplate my own life which felt like I had lost direction till I read that wonderful Oscar Wilde quote 🙂

Michele. I just got the Organize Your Life and Goals Workbook Planner! That is awesome! I can’t put it down. Just what I needed! Keep up the good work!
This has been a very liberating experience for me! I still have more papers to go through and file or dispense with, but I AM getting there! Doing this and the Declutter Your Wardrobe program last year has changed how I deal with “stuff”, which is a great feeling! Thanks Michele!

The thing I like most about it is that, for a list-maker like me, it’s irresistible: when I’ve made a list I just have to cross everything off it. In December I started on the household and got so much done… On xmas day I started with health & fitness and am very motivated.
