Why Every Family Should Follow A Daily Schedule

Why Every Family Should Follow A Daily Schedule

One of the things that make life a little bit more orderly and less stressful in my opinion is following a schedule.  In my line of work as an events organizer, time tables and schedules not only provide clear guidelines for me through months of planning an event, but they also keep me calm, organized and confident.  After having handled many events in the span of almost ten years, I have found that keeping a daily schedule and adhering to it not only helps me to be far more productive, allowing fewer tasks to fall...

Clean Up And Declutter Your Home Without The Stress

I would assume that pretty much anyone reading this loves having a clean and clutter-free home.  However, I’m pretty sure that we would all agree that we differ in our tolerance level for mess and clutter.  Some people are very obsessive about cleaning and organizing.  Then, on the other side of the spectrum, you have people who apparently just don’t place that high of a priority on keeping things clean.  I belong to a group somewhere in between these two extremes, people who consider themselves fairly...

Game Of Thrones Halloween Party

Recently, I was asked to provide consultation services for a couple who wanted to throw a Game Of Thrones Halloween Party this year. Information or details about the party are confidential, but I was reassured that I can share some of the ideas and inspiration that helped to get us started. I know there are only a couple of weeks to go before Halloween, so this post may have come a little too late for those of you who were looking for some tips on the subject.  I suppose it should go without saying that...

Happy 99th Birthday, Chuck Williams!

My favorite cookbook author, Chuck Williams, celebrated his 99th birthday yesterday, October 2nd.  Wow!  99 years old!  How many of us here wish we could live that long? Chuck once said that if you love what you’re doing, the world will fall in love with you too.  He was right.  Not only did the world fall in love with him, it loved him so dearly that it decided it ain’t gonna let him go anytime soon! Chuck Williams is the founder of Williams-Sonoma company and author of the globally...

For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only

“The eyes are the window to your soul.” (Shakespeare) I wonder if it was the Bible from which Shakespeare got the idea for his famous quote:“The eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” (Matthew 6:22)The way I see it, the two quotes can have both spiritual and physical applications.   The eyes are a great indicator of one’s emotional state.  If you’re sad or troubled, angry or worried, it will show in...

Grilled Cheese Sandwich | Daily Prompt

Handle With Care  Daily Prompt:  How are you at receiving criticism?  Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty?    The Sandwich Principle: Please Make Mine A Grilled Cheese Sandwich! I learned many years ago that the best way to give criticism is to follow the “Sandwich Principle”.  It simply means that you need to remember to “sandwich” your criticism between two compliments.  Ergo, say something positive first, then give your...

Can We Be Friends? | Daily Prompt

Litmus, Litmus on the Wall  Daily Prompt:  If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be?  What would the right answer be?  “Can we be friends?” I can’t think of any other single question more direct and all-encompassing than that. Many people would find this a little too forward, or risky, or uncomfortable of a question to be asking someone you just met.  Asking...

Behind The Scenes Of Blogging

When I first started blogging, I was on a roll.  There were times when I published three posts in one day, and a total of six posts in one week. Three years and 232 blog posts later, you’d think that I already have this whole blogging thing down.  Nope. The honest-to-goodness truth is that I still struggle with Writer’s (Blogger’s) Block more often than I would care to admit. As I sit here right now, I have 27 blog posts in my “Drafts” folder still waiting to be finished, proofread and yet to...

12 Healthier Lifestyle Changes That Truly Make A Difference

On one of my more popular posts here on MyMy Blog, I have been asked questions by readers on how I managed to stay committed to any weight loss plan, let alone stick with healthier lifestyle changes to keep the weight off.  I’m not gonna lie to you, nor will I sugarcoat it – it’s been one tough journey! I too have given in to temptation (one too many times) of cheating on my diet plan or quitting halfway through it.  In my previous posts on weight loss and my journey to “a healthier...
