How to Declutter with Gratitude

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey Thanks, Oprah. Now how can we be about a billionth as successful as you? It’s pretty hard to make decisions about every single thing in our possession…and let’s not get started on digital storage!

Do You Think You’re Special?

…in a bad way?     Like, no one understands…     Your shame of not wanting to have anyone over The ridiculous state of your internet and tech passwords Your debt breathing down your neck How you repeat tasks, totally forgetting you already started this How nothing seems to work, and it’s a series of starting over and over How when things are good, they suddenly crash… How your brain doesn’t work like everybody else’s And on and on..AND: How GENIUS you are How frustrated […]

You Can’t Handle the Peace!

Five months ago I was doing gymnastics seven months pregnant, dancing five times a week, meeting my friends for dinner and parties in NYC, visiting my family in NJ, and temporarily concluding my international travels. #nycbusy was pretty much me. Things are pretty different now. Having an infant means that time is not exact, and it’s out of my control. (I don’t sleep or feed on a schedule). As someone who took lots of classes […]
