Books for Moms..

"A grand adventure is about to begin. ~ Winnie the Pooh"

Everyone reads some baby book or the other while they are pregnant. I have done the same. And my personal favorite is titled What to Expect When You are Expecting. This was the first book from this collection that I laid my hands on. After this I became a great fan of their series of books some of which I have read and some of which I am still reading. So lets see what they offer...shall we?

My Reality Checker

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."  ~Philip K. Dick

It is always nice to own a device that would constantly (or once in a while) instill in you some kind of control. Like a weighing machine which reminds you that you are crossing the feed limit by indicating the tip in the scale when you step on it....not one of my personal favorites of-course. The one I am going to talk about is the Reality Checker as I fondly like to call it.

Perfection!!

 "A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault."  ~John Henry Newman

I don't know from where I got it....is it a characteristic of my Sun Sign or is it something I inherited for my parents, grandparents or ancestors....or is it something that I began to use as a yardstick to measure myself when I reached a specific age or stage in my life......this craving for perfection.

In 15!

"You can do anything for 15 minutes" ~ FLYlady

Today I am going to share with you the amazing power of 15. Just 15min. is all you need to invest in doing a little organizing that you always wanted to do. Don't believe me...I urge you to try it.

Perfectionism

"Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing."  ~Harriet Braiker

"No one is perfect... that's why pencils have erasers."  ~Author Unknown

"Nothing that is complete breathes."  ~Antonio Porchia

"Once you accept the fact that you're not perfect, then you develop some confidence."  ~Rosalynn Carter

"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in."
~Leonard Cohen

Simplify your wardrobe

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak."  ~Hans Hofmann

Do you have a cupboard overflowing with clothes? Do you feel that all the clothes you have in there are being used by you at sometime or the other through out the year? Well it is time to think again and to take a closer look at not only your selection of clothes but also your shoes, handbags and more......How?
Let me introduce you to PROJECT 333 (check out the link at the bottom of the post to read all about it). I learned a lot from this project and have summed them up in my own words.
