Another Style Session

This past week, the morning temperatures have not been the usual 75 and 80 degrees that I love so much. Instead the mornings have started to feel a little too much like Fall!

Be Absolute!

Life attempts to bring us restrictions in one form or another: from people telling us what we are and are not capable of to where we live or work. So, if those restrictions come from outside forces, why should we add to it by limiting ourselves? We should not change our visions because of what appears to be a limitation.

What happens when the opportunities we want start to appear in our lives? How do we treat those opportunities that we’ve worked so hard to obtain? Do we run from them?

When I Realized I Was Not Organized!

 I have come to the realization that I am not as organized as I was claiming to be! When I first started my business, I told myself, for example, “Since I’m a one-woman show right now, I don’t need that extra folder” or “I don’t need another label, I’ll remember where I put it (“it” was many things!). I was

Put Yourself On the List!

Time has taught me how important it is to declutter mentally.  We work, work, and work some more, and then repeat, without scheduling time for ourselves and taking mental breaks.  Sometimes we think if we are not physically doing something: typing, researching, talking, checking tasks off, then, somehow, we are not being productive.  Mental breaks are needed to make sure

Pardon Me While I Break

This year has taught me how important it is to declutter mentally.  We work, work, and work some more, and then repeat, without scheduling and taking mental breaks.  Mental breaks are needed to make sure we are still owning our lives, situations, goals instead of our lives, situations, and goals owning us.  We need mental breaks to be sure that
