Communicate (Talk) Openly, Clearly, And Directly–It’s Good For Everyone Involved #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

Communicate (talk) openly, clearly, and directly–it’s good for everyone involved. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

I’m guilty of not being clear and direct.

Fear of not wanting to come across a certain way…

Fear of hurting the other person…

But I’m learning that being open, clear, and direct is truly the greatest gift we can give–to ourselves and others.

Happy Monday! 💙

Remember, You Can’t Change People, But You CAN Change Yourself #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

And it’s a tough one…

Remember, you can’t change people, but you CAN change yourself. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Sometimes the change WE make is to stop fighting, stop talking in circles, stop wishing things were different… and gently walk away. 💔

The Woman's Handbook

I randomly opened The Woman’s Handbook…, for this week’s challenge.

Looking back over the past couple years, it’s clear that I’ve searched out distractions to avoid my life, future…

And. It. Has. Been. AWESOME! 🙂

Fortunately, I’ve been focused lately and what a difference that makes—not as fun, but much more fulfilling.

While home with my sick dog, I’ve completed old, lingering tasks from my to-do list, some more than two years old. Yikes! And I’m only 1/3 of the way…

I will stay focused on my list, but I am a little nervous… What will happen when this list is complete? What will I focus on next?

Have a great week!

My wonderful little Pug has been sick, and because of that, I have been staying home with her.

She is my life.

While home, I’ve gone crazy… cleaning, organizing, getting rid of clutter, selling on Craigslist, and donating.

I didn’t realize how bogged down I had become.

Something amazing is happening…

Not only do I have more space in my home, but my mind seems less cluttered too. I feel lighter. Energized. Happier. Excited about the future.

All of this makes me think about Christy from Touchable Love, An Untraditional Love Story.

Christy was living in chaos, no relationship boundaries, and she didn’t love herself at all.

Cleaning clutter was one of her final stages to happiness.

Have a GREAT week! ♥
