Do What Matters. Do ONLY What Matters

Easier said than done, I know.  I have found that asking myself these two questions before any task can free up some much needed time and takes the "busyness" out of my life.

How to Plan NOTHING & Get Stuff Done.

Welcome to My Thirty-One Life!

Hi, I'm Kim and welcome to my (kinda) new blog. Starting over is a theme in my life, so, while this blog welcomes all who want to read it, my main focus will be women who want a fresh start.  I've had a couple of blogs before and quite frankly, I simply abandoned them.  Not … Continue reading Welcome to My Thirty-One Life!
