Begin at the beginning…. solve those first big steps and a plan begins to take place, things begin to take shape and pretty soon, relief. Here are some methods that I find most effective when faced with some insurmountable task that contains a million different pieces, and I would love if you would share yours. My mind is always open to different ways of getting from the beginning to the end.
Staying focused and resilient is hard – especially for business owners and people who live stress-filled lives. A trained and disciplined mind allows me to be methodical and clear in my business practice, and present and thoughtful in my personal life. I just don’t meditate the way all the experts say I should. I have my own methods and my own way that works for me.
I don’t often make a lot of new year resolutions – but I have made one for 2020 and it’s a personal one of reading 20 books. That goal is not a stretch for me, but I want to be realistic. Life sometimes gets in the way of being able to sit in a comfy chair and get lost in a good book.
Half a decade ago, I took this website down with the intention to cull some of the archives – – keep items I thought were important to me and lose the rest, and then redesign it and relaunch it.

Got someone in your life you love? A friend. A parent. A child. A lover… take a moment and let them know….just ’cause. Do them… and yourself.. the favor of taking the time to say it out loud. Hope you all have a good weekend – – as for me? I need a sanity break. 🙂
WordPress Mug Originally uploaded by LisaSabin-Wilson. Really, how could I not buy one? or two…or three? You can nab your own WordPress mug (or other WP merch.) on the official WordPress website at: http://shop.wordpress.net/world/ I got mine delivered yesterday. My coffee is tasting a bit more dynamic this morning. Heh.
It feels a bit strange… when one of your ex-boyfriends finds you on the ‘net by doing a Google (or in this case, Yahoo) search – isn’t it? Ever had that happen to you? I just did today… and it’s… weird. Chris contacted me via email today. The Chris I’m referring to is not my husband, who is Chris also.. but this particular Chris is a guy I dated for 3 years, quite some time ago. A lifetime ago, actually.
