You: Sustainable: A Guide to Small Improvements for a Better Life

 Feeling stuck and unproductive? Wondering where your energy went and where those extra ten pounds came from? Thinking that you missed your chance to be who you were meant to be?

Then welcome!

Starting today I'll be sharing a month of doable strategies to improve the quality of your life in every area. Change can be hard but if we work together in small increments we can accomplish moving in the direction we want to go. What direction is that? Forward!

Forward toward perfection?

Nope. Forward to being a little better today than we were yesterday and better tomorrow than we are today. I'll be sharing what I've learned over the years to help me keep going on the hard days and fully enjoy the good ones.

Don't be nervous. It's going to be fun and I promise it will not be difficult. Above all, it will be positive and encouraging!

I'll be making videos as well as writing and creating images for us to use as reminders of how we are going forward toward our goals.

You should probably know I use the word goals loosely.  Please see above paragraph about perfection. My motto is "something is better than nothing."

You can't possibly be intimidated by that.

Let's do this! Join me tomorrow for Defining Success and our first pinnable/printable image.

You can find me on Pinterest , Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  Feel free to pin, tweet, and share to your heart's content! Just don't crop my photos, please. I love them just the way they are. :)

    2. Hey, Kirstin! Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! I checked out your blog and it seems like we are on similar journeys. I'm excited to read along with you this month. Great job so far!

      Funny thing, I had to delete my first reply because I called you Kristin. Which isn't funny except that my daughter's name is Kirsten and nothing irritates her more than people getting it wrong. :)
