Bringing Back Christmas Traditions

Bringing Back Christmas Traditions

I was chatting with a neighbor last week and asked why I didn’t see her at our annual neighborhood ornament exchange. She told me that she was trying to “push through Christmas” after the passing of her father. My heart went out to her as I am familiar with the thoughts and emotions that she is experiencing. My mother valued Christmas traditions—the old Christmas carols, foods and decorations inside and around the home.   I on the other hand, love to bring in a more...

Gratitude and the Law of Attraction

Gratitude and the Law of Attraction

Gratitude—in my last blog, I mentioned that creating a mindset of gratitude is not something that comes naturally for most people. It’s something that is learned and practiced daily.

Cathy’s insight and guidance has, and continues, to help me organize my previously chaotic life into a group of systems that work well together.  Her program helped me reduce the stress of trying to keep track of so many things at once, and save me significant time that can be used for more productive things. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and to keep track of, I highly recommend that you speak with Cathy about how her Time Strategies can help you make your life make sense.
