See that stack of papers on your counter? Or the books piled by your nightstand you’re definitely going to read … eventually? Looks like you’ve got some clutter.
For most of us with clutter, seeing stuff just sitting there, piling up day by day, can really weigh on us. It can make us feel bad about ourselves and think negative things like, Why can’t I keep things clean? I’m a lazy mess!
It’s official — summer is here! That’s right, today is summer solstice, AKA the longest day of the year.
While this season may not be as exciting to you now that you’re a “grown-up,” and probably can’t take the next couple of months off like back in grade school, you can take time to enjoy special moments, like today.

Lows happen to all of us.
Sometimes there isn’t even a reason we feel sad, anxious, angry or blah. Blame it on the moon, stars or waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
Have you ever wondered at what point so many of us stopped expecting great things to happen in our lives?
Not wanting, hoping or wishing, but expecting them without a shadow of a doubt.
