This is a system for those of us who struggle with organizing and staying organized. This is for those of us who get overwhelmed with big projects.
This is my system for the year. Things have gotten out of control over the last few years. I need a system. A simple system to regain control of my space. And because life has been so crazy, I need it to be a manageable system, something that will not overwhelm me or make me want to quit the first month. But it needs to be something that at the end of the year, I will feel more peaceful about my space.
52 Things is a series of simple projects over the year designed to de-clutter, organize, simplify, and make your life more beautiful. Each week is one simple project designed to concentrate on one small area. A large project can become overwhelming. This often keeps us from even starting. With these small, but very purposeful projects, you will find it easy and feel productive as you take one small area at a time and transform it a beautiful space. These are manageable tasks and can usually be done in a small block of time, but over the course of the year, a lot of little things will add up.

As the new year approaches, this is a time that many of us are choosing our one word for the year. It is when we choose a word, one word, that is speaking to us, calling to us. Instead of focusing on too many things, it is a way of keeping one goal in front of us all year. It could be a word in an area we would like to grow, a way we want to be, a life philosophy, or a goal. Continue reading to find out what my words were last year, and what words are speaking to me now.
Are you making resolutions right now for the New Year? It is the 31st, and this is what I will be doing as I ring in the new year. I just started thinking about mine. I am not going to sweat that. I’ve gone into January working on mine. We can do this anytime during the year, whether it’s December or July. It’s always a good time to make resolutions and goals. Goals give us focus. Whether you are setting goals for the New Year, or you are setting goals in the middle of the year, goals give us focus, and when action follows this focus, we create an energy and momentum. This is where the magic happens. This is the place you want to live. Read more on… 10 Ways to Make Beautiful Resolutions and Keep Them.
I discovered that it is sometimes on the journey that we find ourselves. -Topaz
I have learned that we do not always have to have strong feelings about something for it to be the thing that will move our soul, for it to awaken our soul. The soul is often awakened on the journey. We just must begin the journey. We must take the journeys, lots of journeys. We have to take that first step. We have to say yes. This is the place where life is lived. This is where we get those experiences that stay with us for a lifetime. These are the things that make our life. These are the things that…
This 30 day challenge has been the single, most life altering challenge I have done to date. This is an update on the last 112 days. If we feed our bodies every day, we need to be just as intentional about feeding our minds. I challenge you to do this 30 day challenge…maybe even for the rest of your life.
He passed this way. I wanted to touch the hem of His garment. This is what this felt like today. On my birthday. He takes my breath away. He saw the tears I blinked away. And He passed this way.
I delight myself in Him and in His love for me. I look for His handiwork. It is in the mountains and in the oceans. It is in the birth of a child. It is in the love notes He leaves for me every where I go. I fall in love with Him a little more every day. He takes my breath away.
My heart is so happy….and full. My heart is full. Today we celebrated.

Today is my birthday. Last year was a big one turning 50. I made a lot of plans for this past year. The year had other plans. Last year seems like a life time ago. I walked through some pretty scary doors this year. But I am still standing strong. So today, I celebrate. I celebrate a …
How we wish to seem might be telling us who we really want to be, maybe even who we were created to be, but we are stuck, stuck in old patterns, hurts, habits, thoughts, and actions. Maybe we just haven’t learned all we need to learn yet. Maybe we are still in the design process…
So this is what I have been up to lately… I am so happy to say…I am designing jewelry again. A couple of years ago, I began designing inspirational jewelry, because I had something special in mind that I wanted. It grew from there. I LOVED designing. I would go…

Dear Beautiful Soul…
We have this one precious life to live, and we want to love it and make it beautiful. But sometimes life happens. It gets hard and ugly, sometimes even tear your guts out ugly. We feel life slowly…well, sometimes at the speed of light…passing us by. Wait. This isn’t what I want my story to be. This isn’t the story I want to live. Sometimes we make bad decisions, and sometimes it is out of our control. This blog is especially for us who have felt like this. While there is something here for everyone, fun 30 day challenges, fun things to do, and deep stuff that makes us live a little differently, but it is especially going to be life changing for those struggling. We have to find our way out one little step at a time. We need someone to shine a little light for us and show us the way, someone who has lived it, not someone with a perfect life, but someone who has lived through the messy and hard stuff and still manages to create a little beauty in the midst of it.
Let’s do this together. Let’s build the biggest and most beautiful tribe of warrior souls banding together to create a beautiful life. Are you in? Are you with me?
