You don't have to be everywhere. You don't have to be everything to everyone, + it most certainly isn't your job to do everything for everyone else. So be intentional with those yeses, and know that saying no gets easier with practice 😊
On Fridays we fold. • Organized? Yes. Perfect? Not even close. • In fact, I’m afraid my motivation to organize is born from a place of sheer laziness. Anything that requires less energy, stress, and workload...sign me up! • Which is why over time we’ve almost inadvertently implemented predictable systems and routines in our own home that help it run in a more efficient manner. • Which is why - in our house - On Fridays We Fold. • I’ve learned it doesn’t suit me to spend every evening folding laundry for a family of four. So, on Friday morning, the first load goes in the washer. By Sunday afternoon, everyone has clean clothes put away in their drawers, ready for a fresh start to the week. We actually even love that a little #konmarifolding + Friday movie night has worked its way into our family routine. • It works for us. • I’d love to hear some of the systems you have in place to keep your work/home/life running smoothly! • PS: Plan for future Friday posts to include some folding tips. ✨ 📷 @hilaryjocelynphotography • #becomingessential#onfridayswefold#sparkjoy#konmari#konmarimethod#konmariconsultants#konmariconsultant#professionalorganizer#417#417land#sgf#springfield#springfieldmo#springfieldmobusiness
On Fridays our fix is literary. Gilead by Marilynne Robinson spans three generations beginning at the Civil War. It’s a deep exploration of spiritual battles which don't seem to diminish over time; And it is fittingly written with the poetry and lyricism of a church hymn. #raiseyourritual#getlit#litliterature#readabook ___ Your Rogue Paq awaits. Tools and accoutrements now available.
Fun fact Friday! I once skipped school only to end up at a Barnes and Noble. I cherish the friends that I can talk natural skincare with-you know who you are-and I mostly drink my wine according to the seasons, but Malbec is my constant and absolute favorite. 📚 But back to books, because leaders are readers! What are some of your favorite books you’ve recently read, either business-minded, self improvement or fiction? I’m currently reading @daveramsey Complete Guide to Money and before that I was reading Before we Were Yours which was soooo good but I misplaced my kindle in a recent move and haven’t picked it back up. Send me all your book recommendations, I’m making a list for Winter! . . . . . . #readersareleaders#bookworm#girlboss#creativepreneur#sparkjoy#funfactfriday#mkephotographer#campwandawega#campwed#createandcultivate
Today has been a good day! First, I found out that my favorite limited edition Polar seltzer flavor from this past winter is now a permanent flavor. Yes, I shrieked in the store when I saw it. If you know me you know I’m addicted to this stuff! . Second, I found out that one of my favorite books I’ve read in a long time is going to be adapted for tv. . Celebrate the things that make you happy, no matter how small that may seem! 💙💚
