Back to basics....

My many remakings are remarkable in their own way. Each, to varying degrees, includes body, mind, and spirit. Each requires being proactive, rather than reactive.

Running always provides the necessary rubric. Running enables me to: regroup; renew; rework; reorganize; remember; and reenergize.

Running is not static; it requires constant movement. So too do I. Running is my restorative.

Never say never

 A recurring mantra is never say never.

My Mom was never going to a long term care facility (okay, a nursing home, I said it) until she did, one year ago today.  It was one of the most difficult decisions I ever made, but one of the best as it turns out.  She is thriving.

My Son was never going to a catholic school until it was clear that one school in particular was a good fit for him.  Now we are planning for next year.

I was never going  to work regularly in an office again until it became clear that doing so would allow me to work smarter.  I hired someone, and training her in the office was most effective.  Also, I can time-block my days better by regularly going to the office.  Don't get me wrong, this office work is not 5 days a week, but it is much more than I ever thought I would want.

Allowing life to take its natural course is a favorable approach.  Follow the possibilities rather than fighting them.

Website time....

I have been working on my website, with Squarespace.  This is so fun -- the biggest problem is balancing time on the website with other demands.  It's totally a work in progress, but so am I.  It's a good fit.

The website is yet another platform to offer solutions and advance the brand.   It's MYTIME to help, move forward, provide solutions for stuff.

Diverse solutions

I am pleased with today's solution.  The problem was what to do with a piece of needlework that was incomplete.  It was designed to be completed as a pillow, which never happened.  The client does not need another pillow, but has wall space and would love to add to her quilt theme.  The solution was to frame the needlework with some time and no money.  A frame and fabric from my collection were used to complete the project.  Sewing is not one of my go-to solutions, but a glue gun is.  The result is effective -- I am looking forward to getting it to my client in a few days!

A positive attitude works wonders

I am doing quite well with my positive attitude!  Today I moved one of my clients out of the storage unit she has been maintaining for over 10 years.  She feels good and I do too.

Finding encouragement....

Today's horoscope is encouraging as I take another step forward by working to launch my website.  

Expanding the adventure

It's time for a website and Squarespace will be the place.  I think Rummage PVD - solutions for stuff will do nicely.

At Rummage PVD you will get to the heart of, and find solutions for, your stuff.

By heart, we mean:

H - honing
E - energizing
A - arranging
R - rightsizing
T - timesaving

It's more than organizing and purging.  You can deal with your stuff as much or as little as you want, and change direction at any time.  Our toolbox is full, and our tools include keys for you to find and unlock answers.

Our business is your stuff and what to do with it.  You may want your stuff to disappear totally, or you may want to keep all of it but manage it better.  Perhaps you prefer something in between.  Rummage PVD will help you decide and implement.

There's no better time or place to rummage....

The Oriole Rummager - ideas abound

This adventure is moving forward, and what fun it is.

A website will be next, with references to each of the options -- ebay, craigslist, Nostalgia, or what have you.  Though The Oriole Rummager is more than that, offering solutions for stuff.

The tag line is, where stuff blossoms.

B - buy
L - learn
O - organize
S - sell
S - seize
O - optimize
M - manage
S - sort

One goal is to make sure a provenance exists, which makes stuff more significant.

If you don't optimize and organize your stuff, then having it may matter less.  

The Oriole Rummager is like this picture -- the more you look, the more you find.  Stuff hides and reveals itself at the same time.
