Thinking with a different mindset… This week for TIOT I want to talk about what I noticed about my things when I started experimenting with minimalism. I was really suprised to see how my things held what was almost like a place of honor in my life. If you recall, I came to a decision […]

I recently went to see The Minimalists, founders of www.TheMinimalists.com, and it really had an impact on me. I have been searching for happy since 1980. I was 1 week from my 19th birthday when I got married. I was pregnant and Catholic. Back then, if you got pregnant, you got married, there was no […]
