6 Tips to Simplify Your Life

Letting go of things that no longer bring you joy or satisfaction can in itself be joyful and satisfying!

It’s a new year full of new hope and new promise.

The last several days at work have been crazy and my evenings have been filled with functions and fund-raisers. I haven’t had quiet time like this in quite some time it seems.

I have had this particular blog post on my list to write for months now. Yes, months. But how do I write about doing something I myself am not always able to do? And that is to make sure I am getting a healthy dose of Vitamin R. Continue reading “Why We All Need Vitamin R”
