SUNDAY: SENSATIONAL SEPTEMBER IS AROUND THE CORNER!

At last….here are my themes starting for SIMPLE SEPTEMBER:

MONDAY’S:  MOTIVATIONAL, MOVEMENT
This will be all about how to move our bodies.  How to stay motivated.  How to have fun being physical.

TUESDAYS: TASTY
I will continue to post recipes I create or food that has become a favorite for me or in our home.  I am going to start sharing pros and cons about a food from time to time, mostly directing anyone who is interested to some of my favorite links that can explain things even better.

WEDNESDAY:  WONDERFUL, WARRIOR, WOMAN
This is going to be all about us women!  How to feel empowered, strong, amazing, feminine.  How we must love ourselves…nurture ourselves…respect ourselves…in order to be the wonderful women we are and spread that good ripple to the young girls for generations to come.

THURSDAY: THANKFUL, THRIFTY
I have wanted to do this posting for so long.  I have wanted to share all the quirky and crazy things I do to cut costs.  The ways I have cut out LATTE factors so that we as a family can truly enjoy the simple life.  So we as a family can be thankful for what we have.  So we as a family can enjoy the things that matter the most to us rather than collecting stuff.

FRIDAY:  FAITH, FAMILY, FUN
Fridays will truly be about what is near and dear to me.  My faith, my family, and how we have fun with it all…

SATURDAY: SHARING, SUM IT UP!
On Saturdays I will sum up either my postings for the week…the month…or I may give a list of what I read that week that resounded and impacted me…or something I listened to …..or a review, a summary, of a book or movie…or something!

Which brings me to my favorite day of the week…SUNDAY!!!

SUNDAY: SENSATIONAL, CELEBRATION
Our parish priest shares such profound messages in his homily each week.  There are some weeks I want to shout his message at the mountain top. This blog is my mountain top!  My desire is to share the Gospel…to share what I took home from his message, from mass…or even how am I going to be respectful of the day of rest.

Therefore, even though I may not post each day atleast a person can anticipate a theme…a knowledge that if Crazy Kelly posts on a Wednesday it’s going to be about Women.  Or…”I wonder how Kelly cut costs with her groceries”…then all a person has to do is search: thrifty or Thursday…and so on…

By the end of each month there may be 2 or 3 posts in each week, who knows…I never know where the spirit may lead me or should I say my pencil….

All I do know is I love sharing…
I love writing…
I love life…
I love being quirky…

So here is my quirkiness in word form…themes!

Enjoy making your September…
SIMPLE…
SILENT…
STILL…
SUSTAINABLE…

and so much more….like…

STRESS FREE…
SELF-LESS…
STRONG…
SENSATIONAL!

I hope you enjoy this new theme thought as much as I enjoy putting it together.

I would love to hear back from any of you (all five of you!) your thoughts of my theme days…
Throw me your 2 cents now…next week…at the end of the month….whenever….

As always…
blessings and hugs…

SATURDAY: SIMPLE SEPTEMBER CONTINUED…

My plan is to reflect and make SEPTEMBER even more about…

SIMPLICITY…
STILLNESS…
SILENCE…
SUSTAINABILITY…

Like I mentioned, I have been really pursuing the simplicity and stillness life.
 (Go here for part one of this post)

The silence…I have always been comfortable with.
Sustainability has been a fantastic journey the last 5 years with my physical health…and I have been challenging myself with the mental health…

But most of this year I have sought out living even more simply.  I have sought out greater, longer moments of silence to listen to God’s words (God’s whispers) and I have sought out creating a lifestyle for my family that is sustainable and balanced.  Whether it is how we approach our faith, our fitness, our food, or our fun.  It must be something we are always striving to work on, to improve on, to build on, to live in!

Thus, creating a lifestyle that is sustainable and not a yoyo, but more like a rubberband, allowing us to stretch ourselves, sometimes retreat to regroup but then stretch out again and this time a bit further.

With that I have been wanting to give each day of the week a theme, a topic I am passionate about.  Topics I love sharing about.  Now, before I share the list of topics don’t worry I have NO intention of posting each day of the week.  That is not going to be conducive to me living a SIMPLE SEPTEMBER.  Actually starting the first week in September I will post something once a week or more, of what I may have written…jotted down….read….listened to….followed….etc.  Therefore anyone who cares to know can know….I know there is at least 5 of you who read or follow…lol!

Therefore if you don’t want to miss out on any of the postings on your own please do take the moment to subscribe to this blog so you can receive reminders and you don’t have to rely on me to send you a reminder of my posting on FB or Pinterest.  Because, sometimes I just run out of time to do that! 🙂

Thus starting in September I may post on Monday and Tuesday, or just Tuesday and Saturday, or Tuesday only….who knows….

 My goal is to actually with these themes to be able to keep them short snippets as well as easy to find exactly what a person might be looking for.

It will be easy to maneuver looking for something that is related to a topic by using the search engine within the blog.  Thus if looking for recipes…search Tasty or Tuesday or Recipes….therefore you will only have all the postings related to food…

I am really excited to organize my days and weeks of the week related to my thoughts and passions.  Plus it allows me to have my fun with spinning words…as you all know by now that I love a play on words and letters.

Thus with further ado….here are the themes and thoughts behind them!

(to be continued….)

FRIDAY: FEELING SIMPLE IN SEPTEMBER!

September…

Embracing the silence…
the stillness…
…simplicity…
…sustainability…

What is it about today’s time, generation, that feels we have to be going going going?

Few people seem to be willing to just sit still for even 5 or 10 minutes without having to be “entertained” or doing something.

How many of us feel we must have the next best thing to accomplish “xyz”?

And how many of us chase the next “best” product, supplement, diet, toy, vacation…to achieve our goals of “satisfaction”?

I challenge all of us to truly think…reflect…pray…during the month of September…on…WHAT DOES OUR MIND, BODY AND SOUL TRULY NEED!?!

How can an individual truly be content in the silence?
…to feel PEACE?
…to gather STRENGTH?

How can someone truly approach each day with simplicity?

A simplicity that still allows us to be responsible…
…yet shed away ALL unnecessary gunk, distractions, of over scheduling…
technology overload
therefore sitting down with family or friends for tea, coffee, a bite to eat, or even a nice glass of wine!

And how can we sustain new habits? Whether in our spiritual life…our physical life….healthy lifestyles and choices…our mental life….our ambitions…goals..purpose….?

I’ve been pursuing these traits…these goals of simplicity, stillness, sustainability, with great pursuit these last couple of years.  I have found it challenging at times, yet also very rewarding.

As I prepare to enter into September, I want to share some ways I have learned to simplify my life.
