Effective time management is a useful skill to learn. Being able to solve your time management issues is crucial to enjoying a stress-free life. Most people have busy lives. Trying to cope with a full-time job, plus a family and social life, is not easy. We have all had days where important appointments have been missed and a family birthday has been forgotten. The trick to avoiding these unfortunate occurrences is effective time management.

There are days when there is so much on my to-do and want to-do list that I think my head may explode. I find it incredibly overwhelming how much comes at me in this information technology world

The past few months have been filled with lots of endings for me. The end of a business partnership was one of the big endings for me. today marked the clear ending of that as the final papers were signed to with the lawyers.

Although the ending has been amicable, we love each other and wish each other well in the pursuit of new Although the ending has been amicable, we love each other and wish each other well in the pursuit of new passions, it was a sad day for me and had me reflecting on all the endings that have come my way this year. Most of those endings being my limiting beliefs about myself and my life.

I feel as though in the past few months I have been decluttering my life of all the beliefs that have been weighing me down and all the distractions that have taken my attention over the past few year, and at the end of all these endings i find myself with new beginnings to look forward to. I have learned a lot working with the amazing people I have had the pleasure of hanging with, and now find myself taking all that learning and sitting on the edge of the unknown with myself. I feel that at this time it is my time to step out of the shadows and put myself forward into the light, to allow myself to shine. that has always been difficult for me, it is so much easier to be behind the scenes and let others shine…there is not as much pressure there. I have had moments of being out in the spotlight but for the most part I have been back up support. I have played small and allowed myself to not go all the way into being myself.

the past few months, with lots of endings not all of my own choosing I find the message that I am getting is that it is time for my new beginning. to introduce the world to the real me, the confident me, the me that has been growing and learning over the past 45 years and is now ready to say ” I am enough” and I am ready to shine.

As I say goodbye to the shadows and past clutter…I turn my head up towards the light, breathe deeply and know this new beginning is freedom!

The other day I spend the day fighting back tears and having several crying spells…and I have no idea why. I get these waves of sadness that envelop me every once in awhile, I can be driving down the street,

sitting at my computer or just really doing nothing then all of a sudden I am crying (and often laughing at myself at the same time). I have come to the conclusion that it is how my body rids itself of stress and overwhelm. Even when I think I am not stressed or overwhelmed my body seems to like to react to remind me that I am…I am tired of struggle, I am tired of being stuck, I am tired of not moving forward…I am tired!

When I am tired, I cry…when I am overwhelmed, I cry…When I am disappointed, I cry…Sometimes for no reason I can understand, I cry…then I pull myself together like the mom on Love Actually and carry on. It does not make me weak, it does not make me unworthy…it just is me!

Carrying On,


Walking today in a favorite small park near my home that is under construction got me to thinking how messy things get when we start to build,renovate or rebuild.

clear the space and finally start the build. This goes for us as well…when we feel that it is time for change we must first release the old, those things that

are holding us back and not serving us anymore. This gets messy, can be painful and sometimes takes a long time (ever watch a reno show…it gets tough). If we try to build over the old, often things are off, the foundations start to crumble and it all falls apart eventually.

Sometimes we need to knock things down, dig things up and remove old crap in order to repair or build new awesomeness in our life.
