Ah, yes. October, when fall comes bursting in showing us how beautiful things can be when you let them go. October is also the month of Halloween preparation, whether you have fun with the costumes and decorations, or you binge watch horror movies. I guess to me fall is kind of about fear. Fear of letting go, and fear of what lurks behind the next door. So in the October Thoughts to Inspire I am addressing fear, and trying to conquer those fears.
What you are afraid to do is a clear indication of the next
thing you need to do.-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not
enough, we must do.
Showing off is the fool’s idea of glory.
I fear not the man who has
practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick
10,000 times-Bruce Lee
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela
I hope the October Thoughts to Inspire did just that…inspired you to take on your fears, and gain the courage it takes to triumph over them.

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
