    Lorie, I really like this. It's such a good way to think about our days and how we're using our time. I'm going to post it some place where I will see it often.


    Lorie, something I do to remind myself that a few minutes here and there can add up to a masterpiece is cross stitch. I'm working on a design that I estimate will take me 7 years to complete. I know that sounds crackers but I spend TV time most nights working on it and it's always there for me to look back at, showing me how 1/2 here and there adds up to something bigger!

    Probably a bad week to ask me that question. I'm a little burned out after a big project. But what I have created are systems to keep the clutter and chaos under control. Even if I slip up a little one week because I'm focused on something else, I can easily get back on track the next week.

    Clutter and chaos are so draining. And you're right, a good diet certainly helps too! Gotta keep those energy levels high, and be able to think clearly.

    I guess it's about creating good habits, which in turn naturally creates the type of life you want to live.

    I like this phrase alot. It reminds me that I do have control over actions. Might tape it right next to "This is the Best Day Ever!" (given to me by Jeffrey) on my computer monitor.

    Wow, great words of wisdom Lori. Thank you for sharing this. I think sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in life's little chaoses that we loose sight of what is truly important. I have copied and pasted this article into a Word document and have it hanging on my refrigerator to remind me to stay focused on what's important. Thank you for the great reminder.

    Thanks, everyone- this was one of my favorite posts I have ever written and it's really important to me, so I am very glad it meant a lot to you too. - Lorie


    "what does a masterpiece LIFE look like for you?" - Love it! It's a little like having a vision for your life and living it out.

    In regards to "Does your masterpiece include clutter, chaos, procrastination, indecision, and distraction?" - my kids are home for the summer, can I answer this question in the fall? My house is one big clutter pile right now...


    Oh Polly, that was so funny! I am so feeling your pain right now- two teenage boys home for the summer.

    We'll have some tips to help you get ready for back-to-school soon!
