I’ve Been to “Away”

September 27, 2016

We  push our trash out to the curb once a week and when we get home we pull the empty bins back into our yards to begin another round. If we are conscious, we recycle, whether that be at curbside or our closest recycling station. We buy and collect stuff, then push it out to the […]

One of my tips is to take photos of the items you take on vacation. Then, when you return, make notes of which items you used, any items you didn’t use and any things you needed to stop and buy along the way. In July I had the good fortune to go to Whidbey Island […]

What participants have to say about My Best Year

Carrie – Portland, OR

“This program feels great! I have renewed some good habits and started others that fit my new lifestyle as an empty nester. I am getting to bed earlier, getting up earlier, getting more exercise, and reading lots of books on how to develop even more healthy habits. I’m eating at home more and using my time more effectively. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“The topics, ideas, and support from everyone in the group has really helped me stay focused and motivated.  Each topic has helped me think through my habits and intentions in different ways. I am especially grateful for the stability of this group as it turns out to be a particularly challenging year – my circumstances have suddenly changed twice in the last 6 months. I find myself now in a major transition in life – moved to a new city to live with elderly parents and also just retired. My current life requires a level of patience and flexibility I would not have had. It’s been wonderful to have a such a diverse group with similar interests and intentions for life. Kathy does a great job of keeping it interesting, thought provoking, and positive. I really appreciate that.”

“My Best Year has helped me in several different ways: first being a part of a community and having support throughout the year has provided me with the structure I needed. Secondly, I appreciate everything Kathy provided to us, this directly impacted my growth in creating the life that I want. Third, this program gave me the confidence to take more risks, the knowledge I’m not alone, and the belief in myself to imagine possibilities. I didn’t envision this would impact me as it has and it has inspired me to go further than I thought I could.”
