Deepak Chopra Meditation

This is by far better than anything I can write. Without space in my brain, I cannot be free to BE; this is the most important thing. TO BE. Take 15 to listen to this and then go on with your day. Give yourself permission to take the time – it’s work to BE but without it, all things become ‘busy’ in the brain.

Order in the Closet

THERE IS NOTHING NICER than an orderly and organized closet.
Organizing closet - HangerIt’s always a hassle when one side of a shirt is hanging on for dear life just waiting to fall on the floor because the fabric is so slippery or loose fitting to stay put.

After years of struggling, I discovered FOAM HANGER COVERS,  providing a nice grip to keep shirts organized and skid-free. They can be purchased for less than $15 per 100. Use these on top of matching clear or white plastic hangers and you’ll enjoy looking in your closet instead of dreading it!

Just a small investment in hangers can make a huge difference in the way you ‘see’ your clothes.




LifesaverLIFE THROWS CURVE-BALLS; an unexpected death, a forced move, health issues. We don’t know when or where they’ll land or how we will deal with them until circumstances arise.

Transitioning is difficult and stressful – it’s wrestling with the unknown. Some of us are fortunate to have families that can assist, but sometimes they live far away. Some of us don’t have families and we feel alone. Having an advocate for yourself or a loved one is the first step.

If you have aging family members (siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins) that live in Santa Barbara and you need assistance, you have arrived at your destination.

Photoshop Tip: Blurring a Background

Today, I was looking for a way to take this photo:

And turn it into this:

I searched online.  I watched 2 youtube videos and scratched my head, wondering if I have a learning disability.  So, I thought I’d try something unique and found a text article by this terrific writer Lesa Snider.  She explains things in a way I can understand, which is no easy feat.  I am quite content with the results.

One by one and things get done

organizing_clutter_garageClipboard013 copyBen was a inventor, author, signor of the Declaration of Independence, and so much more. He has inspired me in many ways. I’ve been organizing individuals and businesses for over 10 years. There is one thing for certain; an organized workspace makes for an organized and quiet mind. This picture was taken at a clients’ office. She actually had plenty of space which is a nice thing to have, but she didn’t know how to best utilize the space. We rearranged everything, top to bottom; from the closets to the desk and other working surfaces. It took us one full day, 8 hours to get it done. I help her every 6 months or so to stay on top of the incoming and outgoing chaos. Once a foundation is established, quarterly and / or bi-annual ‘check ups’ are essential for long term peace of mind. The process is quite simple; we just have to start. One paper at a time… One file at a time… One pen at a time. If I have any task that looks like it will require lots of time, I will procrastinate because I am afraid that there is ‘no way’ to ever get it all done. But if I just do the next indicated thing, little by little, one paper by one paper, one task by one task, and don’t let those thoughts race through my brain, things get done. They get organized. All I’ve ever wanted was peace of mind. When clutter takes over, my brain is not free. This is what I have learned and what I pass on to clients. I have never had a client that wished they hadn’t worked with me, ever. It costs less than a 1.5 hour massage and will last a lot longer, like years longer and ultimately will have you living longer.
