Taking Your Own Advice

Do you ever forget to take your own advice?  Me too.

Today I’m going to spend the day catching up.  I have many emails to answer, little home things to take care of (laundry, cleaning, and organizing), and work projects to finish up.  So I’m not going to get overwhelmed, I’m going to take one step at a time, and I’m going to get it done!

Thank you all for your amazing comments of late – I will spend some time today answering any questions you’ve asked.  And a big open arms welcome to all of our new Challenge participants!

If you’re looking for more to read, try out some of my favorites about Building Community.  It’s the next step on the path of sustainability.  

Have a wonderful day!
