The Simple Talk About Complexity

I had a thought lately that ended up leading me into having a very nice chat with myself about complexity. What the heck is that all about, you might be asking yourself; and before you go and deem me as someone who’s really got too much free time on her hands (and obviously talks to…

The Importance of the Words We Say

This week I decided to write a little post that will quite literally apply to anyone. Yep, you read it right: I wanted to address a little thing that we don’t always keep track of: the things we say and, more importantly, how we say them. Words are pretty strong. In my country there’s even…

The Importance of a Clutter-Free Mind

There’s so much fuss lately about living a clutter-free life: buying less, making more, frugal living and so on. And in the midst of all this clearing up of living space, you’ve got to notice that there isn’t nearly as much information about de-cluttering the one thing that is always with us and affects what…
