It’s About Time

By Peggy | August 26, 2017 | 0 Comments

  Time is odd. Time is finite. Sometimes you can feel time physically. Time is precious. Time is a commodity. Consider one minute of time.  Just 60 seconds. To a mother with a sick child, waiting for results, one minute can feel like a lifetime. To the student taking a test, one minute of time feels like it passes in a flash. To a school kid, summer is gone in an instant. To the woman in labor pains, one minute lasts forever! To a family member waiting on a deployed family member to return, one minute is equal to an eternity. In those beautiful moments of family fun, time feels like it […]

Virtual Organizing

  Many people are in need of assistance to organize their homes and lives.  There is a way to get this done, no matter where you live, with virtual organizing services.  We work together via phone/email/Facetime or Skype to organize your space the way you have always envisioned.

The Creep

By Peggy | July 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

Pictured above is a plant called Kudzu.  It is an invasive plant;  creeping, coiling, and climbing until it has taken over every square inch of the space surrounding it.  Kudzu doesn’t take over all at once.  It does it slowly and over a period of time. When working with myself and my clients, I call this “the creep”.  Little by little clutter begins to pile up in an area of your house.  It doesn’t come in all at once, it accumulates slowly over time.  A stack of mail, a stack of papers to file, a stack of magazines you are planning to read, a stack of clean clothes, a stack of dirty clothes.  It goes […]

I Eat Salad for Breakfast

By Peggy | July 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

  Yes, you read that right.  I love a salad for breakfast.  In fact, I’ll even eat leftover salad from dinner the night before. Many of you reading this will say, “Yuck!  How do you eat a salad for breakfast?” Others of you will say, “Yum, me, too!” While others will say, “Breakfast? Who can eat breakfast?” And even others will say, “Salad?  I hate salad!” You might ask, “What is the point of you letting us know you eat salad for breakfast?”  I’m glad you asked. There are so many responses to something as simple as what people eat for breakfast, so why do we expect our lives to be exactly […]

Why a Life Coach?

By Peggy | July 17, 2017 | 0 Comments

Life coaching is one of those concepts many people have a hard time grasping. What is a life coach?  Why would I want a life coach? Life coaching is simply helping you get from point A to point B in your life. It is helping you identify your dreams and goals and find the steps you need to take to get there. What are the benefits of using a life coach?  Objectivity  – We all get in the midst of our lives and can’t see the forest for the trees.  We look at life from one viewpoint and think that is all there is.  A life coach asks you the right questions […]

Vines and Thoughts Can Destroy

By Peggy | May 29, 2017 | 0 Comments

VINES AND THOUGHTS CAN DESTROY Anyone who has read any of my blog posts or heard me speak should know I seriously dislike yard work.  As a result, what you see is an area in my back yard that should not look like this.  So, I knew I needed to carve out some time to work on this area and I did just that.  As usual, I see a lot of analogies with yard work to mind work and this time was no exception. First of all, what is covering most of the area you see in the first photo is vines.  Now take a closer look. The vine latches on to walls, […]

Steeped in Clutter – How I Spend My Days

By Peggy | March 30, 2017 | 0 Comments

I spend my days in clutter – talking about it, looking at it, moving it around, boxing it up, putting it up, donating it, throwing it away, recycling it.  I spend my days working with people who are surrounded by clutter – in their kitchens, garages, closets, dining rooms, living rooms, kids’ rooms, bathrooms, dens, attics, offices, and their minds. I spend my days watching how people struggle –   Do I donate it?  Where?  Who could use this?  Will I need this again?  I paid so much for that.  I used to wear/use that all the time.  It is still in such good shape.  I think I’ll give it away, no, […]

Why My Refrigerator Stays Bare

By Peggy | March 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

Compared to most refrigerators I see, my refrigerator is pretty bare.  I have seen people who live alone with 2 refrigerators full of food.  I have seen families of 7 with refrigerators that are not stuffed.  No matter the number of people in your home, your refrigerator can still be stocked with what you need without excess. There are many reasons I keep my refrigerator this way.  We eat leftovers.  We eat a meal and if there are leftovers, we eat them for lunch, dinner or sometimes breakfast!  We eat what we make. I don’t mindlessly buy a bunch of food.  I look ahead at the week and know when I’ll be cooking. […]

Yard Work, Pruning and Thoughts

By Peggy | February 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

I have to admit to all of you, I detest yard work and my husband detests it even more than I do.  I am not good at it and I don’t enjoy it, but when I set my mind to something, well, it usually gets done.   Today, I decided it was time to attack an area of our landscaping and attack I did. This bush you are looking at is a beautiful Forsythia bush (not sure why I even know the name of it).  In the spring it is beautiful with yellow blooms.  When it was first planted, many, many years ago, it was the perfect size bush for this particular […]

Intentional Living – What Does It Mean and Are You Doing It?

By Peggy | January 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

Living intentionally has a different meaning to everyone you talk to.  To many it means: Being organized Having your life in order Exercising regularly Being perfect I’m not saying those things aren’t incorporated into living intentionally, but I am saying there is much more to intentional living.  Things like knowing why you are making the choices you are making each day.  Knowing what direction your life is going and where you want it to go.  Knowing your values so you can align your life up with those values.  Getting inside your head to know what thoughts you are really thinking that are driving many of your decisions. Intentional living is living your […]
