|I’ve overcome my fear of
cutting tags off clothes
using the good china
drinking the champagne
|You can too.
I didn’t burn a special candle until it was too late. This loss revolutionized how I think about my things.
THE IDEA: Don’t Let Your Candle Melt in the Closet. We make up excuses and reassure ourselves that ‘someday when’ we will use our things and celebrate our life. Meanwhile, the candle melts in the closet, the champagne goes flat in the bottle, the clothes keep their tags on, and we let our life pass us by.
THE GOAL: No more melting! I am here to help you take small actions to enjoy your life as you’re living it, not ‘someday when.’ As we embrace our life and realize we are worthy of having and using our nice things, we begin to seek out more from life, push ourselves further and realize it’s possible to embrace today. I write about why we save our things, why we cannot get rid of things and how to overcome the obstacles and mindsets that hold us back from enjoying our life.
ABOUT ME: I live in Vancouver, BC, with my husband. I’m a curly girl. Yes, it’s natural, no you can’t touch it! The ER is where you can find me by day (and night) working as a nurse. This means coffee keeps me going and sleeping in is my superpower. I’m 100% a dog person and can’t be trusted to focus on any conversation when a cute dog is anywhere in the vicinity. I have a big smile, accompanied by a big laugh, and have been guilty of making more than one head swivel in a quiet restaurant (sorry, not sorry). I’m always on the hunt for a good deal and buy 99% of my clothes on sale or at the thrift store. My guilty pleasure is baked goods with a deep commitment to muffins.
