  1. Good morning, Courtney! By sharing your story, you open the door for all of us to make connections – to think, Oh, I can do something similar to that by _______. While we can only live our own story, I think sharing and pondering the stories of others, we can write our own story (and revise it!) and start to live lives we love. Thank you for sharing.

      Thanks Tammy, We are on the same page in knowing that our personal stories can inspire change in others. (because other people’s stories inspired me)

      While thrilled with the changes I’ve made, I never want to sound boastful … “look what I did” because I can see how it could come off like that. What I really want people to know is that what I did wasn’t extraordinary or miraculous, I just had to be open to it and slow down long enough to let it happen. I really appreciate your support!

  2. Exactly. One step at a time, one foot in front of the other. An occasional side step and a little happy dance never hurt either. Just keep on going, gathering knowledge along the way and life becomes amazingly simple. Good luck with the new course!

    I am so thankful I’ve found your blog a couple of years ago now. Though, I have followed other inspiring people over the time, you’re the one I’ve got stuck with :) and that really makes my simplicity journey worthwhile! “You keep me on track” and inspire me with every single post you write. Thank you!

    I peeked over at simpleyear.co It looks great! Can’t wait to revisit over the next coming months.

  4. Wow, simpleyear looks awesome. I’m also guilty of trying to change too many habits at once, then I end up back where I started. It’s great to read posts like yours and realise that change *is* possible but it doesn’t happen overnight.

  5. I am definitely in the “there are so many things I want to change!” camp.

    The concept of a guided simple year is brilliant. :-)

  6. Courtney! after all those years reading you, I still can’t believe how crazy similar our lives are… it is scary… but I really enjoy reading this especially now that I am going thru another change, it reminds me to stay focus on ont thing at a time… in order to not give up again!
    thanks a million times!

  7. Guilty! Thank you so much for reminding me that I am ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE…one who tries to do way too many things at once and then wonders why nothing ends up completed. I have been doing this for years and now, you have reminded me to focus on one thing at a time rather than several and I might just get somewhere…so simple, yet so enlightening. Thank you!
