Have Jewelry, Can't Find It?

Do you have great pieces of jewelry but you just can't find it, see it or remember to put it on before you head out the door?  I have a great solution for you.

I have a double sided jewelry bag like this hanging in my closet.  I love it because I can see everything.  It makes accessorizing so easy.  I used to have a traditional jewelry box, but that just didn't work for me because I couldn't see everything - it seemed like it was all jumbled together.  With my hanging jewelry organizer, all of my jewelry is visible and it doesn't take up room on my dresser.  I love that!

A Warning to Vacationers

If you are not vigilant on vacation and let your guard down for one minute, tchotchke's and brochures will invade your luggage, vehicle,  purse - even your pockets!

To guard against the evil invasion of the tchotchke's and brochures think before you buy:

Where will I put this when we get home?  If you don't have a space for it, don't buy it.

Will it translate into my normal life after vacation?

Can I just take a photo of it with my camera phone to look back at and laugh later?

Can I get this information online?  Brochures are a paper version of a website.  So, if you see an interesting brochure, take a photo of it or write the name in a notebook.  Look it up when you get home.

The photo above was taken with my smart phone at a Disneyworld gift shop a few years ago.  If you have been to Disney and have experienced the monorail transportation system, you know this phrase well.  I took a photo of the t-shirt to remember it.  I certainly was not about to buy it - where woul…

A Clearer, Simpler Way to Eat

Never in a million years did I ever think I would consider becoming a vegetarian or even a vegan.  This book has changed my mind.  In The Kind Diet, Alicia Silverstone explains the environmental impact eating meat, eggs and dairy have to our world.  
She also explains that when we cut out meat, eggs and dairy, we start living more simply and really start connecting with our bodies natural rhythm.  I like that - and the word simply just stuck out for me. 
I think this is just another piece of the puzzle to truly become less stressed, less cluttered and to focus on what's important.
I am going to slowly incorporate a vegan diet into my lifestyle.  It is not going to be easy and I'm sure I'll fall off the wagon many times, but if a simpler and healthier way to eat and a healthier planet is what I get in return, I'll give it a shot!  

Do It Anyway

I just came across this poem attributed to Mother Teresa and I wanted to share it.  I see it as a  great reminder to not let negativity stand in the way of living your life.

Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.
