Your Sustainable Future


Here we are at the end of this series and I have to say this month just flew by! And I have so much more to say on this topic! I suspect there might be some editing and revising going on now that I'm not racing to post every day.

 If you have been along for the ride this entire month, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

If you just found my blog, WELCOME!

If you need more encouragement or have questions, contact me.

They always say to create the product you wish existed or write the book you wish you could read. I've tried to do that here. My goal was to condense much of the great information I've absorbed over the years into bite-size pieces. I have tried to keep it doable. Encouraging. And of course, sustainable.

This is exactly the kind of hand holding I needed in my 20s and 30s. Okay, and some days in my 40s.

I desperately needed someone who had walked ahead of me down the road to wave me away from potholes and reach back and help me up the steep parts.

I have tried to do that here for you.

I've hoped to make it helpful wherever you are on your journey. If you are just starting out in life, in parenting, or in a new venture doing the things in this series in a sustainable way in the years to come will make dramatic improvements in your life mentally, physically, and spiritually.

If you are farther down the road of life and filled with regret or thinking that it's too late--it's not.

You likely have many more years to live. Decide today that they will not be filled with regret or envy. Here is an ancient Chinese Proverb to help:

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

Determine that from now on you will work on yourself. 

From now on you will develop good habits.

From now on you will see each new day as a do-over.

Every day you can get up and decide to do better than you did yesterday. It's always too early not to keep getting up and it's never too late to start something new.

The real sustainability is in not quitting. I know you can do that.

Please check in on your journey from time to time along the way. I'd love to know how you are doing. 



  1. Congratulations! We did it! I enjoyed your posts immensely.

    1. I am SO happy that you enjoyed it and felt like it met a need. That is where my heart is and I was just telling my daughter last night I am considering doing an e book of it. But first, my goal this week is to catch up on all the other great 31 Dayers I didn't have time to read last month. Can we just admit writing every day is HARD? LOL Can't wait to catch up with you!

    2. Absolutely YES to the "HARD!" !! :) *Excited to continue checking back often here-- and I am with you: there are SeVeRaL series that I was not able to follow all the way through as I wanted, so I am looking forward to doing the same!~ Blessings on the rest of your 2016~~ <3 ~
