Aiming for Less

Aiming for Less

It happens every year. About a week before the calendar rolls over and ushers in a new year, I start seeing posts about New Year Resolutions, and offers for courses and strategies to “Make this the best year ever” for weight loss, organization, dreaming bigger, exercising more and weighing less.

3 New Years Goals for Getting Back to What Really Matters

Along with the shouts of “Happy New Year” come the obligatory questions, “What is your New Year’s resolution?” I’ve never been a huge fan of resolutions.

When Christmas Isn’t

When Christmas Isn’t

It was barely noon on Christmas day and I ransacked the house, tearing down the Christmas tree and all the decorations, trying to rid the house and my heart of every visible reminder of Christmas…my first Christmas without my mother; my first Christmas in the unwanted role as matriarch of the family.
