I was at a turning point in my life — unbeknownst to me. My mom & my Aunt Diane were reading these books about simplifying their lives. I was skeptical. I started reading SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE: 100 WAYS TO SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY THE THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER and I really couldn’t put it down. Now that was nearly 12 years ago and things have significantly changed since then! I dumped my long time boyfriend, moved out, finished school. I’m now married to a great like-minded guy who doesn’t mind that I’m a nut. And we got kids and cats and a house. Even my career has changed. Change can really be made with some simple steps.
