Live Simply 2020: March Mantra

  It is so easy to stop. It’s easy to give up and give into the desire to be lazy. It’s infuriating, really, how easily exemplary slips back into mediocre. It takes just a handful of choices; fewer, probably. A closet’s beautifully organized status begins to be undone with a single garment not put back in its proper place. The physique achieved through daily exercise begins to diminish with one missed workout. The path towards ...

Live Simply 2020: February Mantra

Live Simply In 2019: November Mantra, Forgive Past Mistakes

  Forgiveness is a spiritual reset button. “Begin again,” Forgiveness instructs. Release the offenses incurred, the standards unmet, the judgments rendered. View the situation, or that person, or yourself with compassion. Remember that everyone, including yourself, is sorting through hardships, and (probably!) doing their best to play the hand given.
