All Her Earthly Treasures

June 12, 2018

This blog post has been brewing for a while. It’s one that’s not easy to write as it’s very personal, yet it feels like it needs to be shared. My wish is to honor my Mom while taking time to learn from her life and her passing. I am still recovering from this very personal […]

I love the topic of “Tilting” included in Brooke McAlary’s book Destination Simple – Everyday Rituals For a Slower Life. Brooke hosts the Slow Your Home podcast and in this gem of a book, she discusses single-tasking, unplugging, emptying your mind, three things and gratitude. She sets up plans for creating your own unique morning […]

  In a world that sometimes feels like it’s spinning, I took the time to teach my granddaughter a most important word. Ava was only three at the time, but she was focused on her own needs and wants. She has always been great with her language skills, as evidenced by her not only saying […]

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.”
