Routine decluttering, get started with your life on purpose, styling an outfit, the enneagram workbook bonuses
++ recently decluttered ++
The initial decluttering of our house five years ago was sure dramatic. Now we are in the routine cleaning of places (decluttering, putting things back to their proper homes, recycling broken and useless stuff) It is important because it helps us maintain the hard work we put in. It also helps reacquaint ourselves with our things and take an inventory of what we do have.

My medicine cabinet. There were expired ones and ones I didn’t really use that I am returning to the pharmacist for disposal. There were also things that didn’t belong in the cupboard (spices, candy stashes, etc.)
My closet. I’m obviously not here to impress you with the most Pinterest-worthy closet. I store clothes to let go of in the closet (purging as I get dressed in the mornings), as well as all the laundry baskets and apparently a broken guitar……So I needed to clear out the mess on the floor.
The kitchen shelf. This shelf in the kitchen becomes this weird holding pen for random items (much like our bedroom dresser). It is so easy to spend 10 minutes here taking things away that don’t belong and putting them in their right home.

This past week I hosted my first online workshop called KNOWING YOUR VISION AND VALUES. This is based on the Life on Purpose workbook. It is, in my opinion, the first step in living your life on purpose.
Life on Purpose is what I have been digging into for the past five years and I have found that SETTING GOALS will not be enough. If you want to really live your life on purpose, you need to start with your vision and values. Then you can set goals that have longevity and effectiveness and are naturally motivating.

Fashion was something that was daunting to me. Then when I had my second baby, I found myself spending a lot of midnight nursing session scrolling Pinterest. I was pinning cute outfits, reading fashion blogs, just enjoying the virtual experience.
So, I started to get dressed each day. I started doing the
I started to try new things and I found that I was enjoying it. Maybe at the time it felt like the one thing I could possibly control and enjoy in my rocky life.

The Enneagram isn’t about personality, it is about the story we tell ourselves, and our motives, and how we navigate the world because of these two things.
There are nine Enneagram types and knowing your type can give you so much insight into yourself – your stress habits and your strengths. I recommend EVERYONE learn their type!
