Simplify – it means something different to all of us. To me, to simplify is to eliminate the things from my life that are not necessary and do not support any of the main priorities in my life. Simplifying your life may be one of the single most calming actions you can take. The act of simplifying is truly key in creating your calm because it eliminates all the unnecessary chaos that often gets in the way of peace in your day.

It’s no secret – you’ll never get where you want to go if you don’t get started. So, if we all know it why aren’t we all going? Well – it’s because we don’t know how to get started.
We are waiting until we are smarter, stronger, skinnier, healthier, whateverer – and guess what – we will never be more or less anything until we get started. Move. Move in a forward direction. Move.

You are at a point that you know you want to move. Maybe you don’t know where or even why. That’s ok – move anyway. You don’t have to know exactly where you are going.

You are making the decision that your life does not matter enough for you to get involved – and you are wrong. Dead. Wrong. Continue reading →
