It’s hard to believe that it is September already. September is a very transitional month, filled with hurried schedules and high emotion. It’s a month of adjusting and letting go, just as the trees let go of their leaves in the fall. School begins, which is exciting for some. For others though, it means letting go of seeing their loved ones 24/7 which can be super hard: especially for those just starting school, or those leaving for college. As hard as it is for those kids to transition into that change I think it is equally difficult for parents. Sometimes the answer to making September less stressful is simply to look at things with a different perspective, and simplify. Have you ever taken a nature walk or even just stepped out into your back yard, taken a deep breath, and just taken in the beauty of your surroundings? Whether it’s meditation, or a moment of reflection, it can make a difference in your day. So the September Thoughts to Inspire will center on the beauty in simplicity and changing your mindset, so you can face this very busy month with a positive attitude.

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.
