8 Good Reasons Why You Should Let Go of Clutter

Excellent advice for Monday – get rid of clutter, both material and mental!


“We are shallow because we have become enslaved by gross materialism, the glitter of gold and its equivalents, for which reason we think that only the material goods of this earth can satisfy us and we must therefore grab as much as can while we are able.” ~ F. Sionil Jose

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

It’s Monday and I haven’t had my morning coffee yet; I’m feeling a bit lazy and this blog award can be tackled easily, LOL! Thank you for providing an award that my fuzzy morning brain can deal with.

It’s Monday and 1st February…the perfect day to do an awards post!

The Rules:

Display the award and thank your nominator. Then answer these questions:
Who are your top 5 bloggers and why?
What type of posts do you like to read?
Do you plan to change any styles regarding your blog?

The types of posts I like to read will sometimes vary, depending on my mood, but I always love a post that makes me laugh out loud – no matter what my mood is! I could be feeling most foul, but a good laugh can shake me out of my doldrums pretty quickly.

As far as changing any styles regarding my blog, I have no plans to. I like the ‘Koi’ theme and settings, and I will always write what I feel like, when I feel like it! I’ve definitely started re-posting more, which has greatly increased my viewers and followers, so I won’t quit doing that. Getting involved in at least one “Meet & Greet” per month is a lot of fun, too. Otherwise, I have decided to start ‘protecting’ some posts, both past and future, with passwords. The past ones have passwords to thwart moronic, obsessive trolls with no lives; the future ones will be posts strictly for myself – posts with questions, observations, realizations, and both present and future plans and goals.

Next, tell a little bit about yourself – who are you, what is your blog about, and why did you start blogging? Then, nominate between 3 – 5 other blogs, not including the nominator or your top fives. Keep it low-maintenance! After your post is complete, copy the link and put it in the comment section of your faves and nominees, so that they are at least aware of it, LOL

Who am I? That depends on who you ask, LOL!
What is my blog about? A little bit of everything!
Why did I start blogging? Because I’ve always needed some sort of creative writing outlet, and this is the perfect way for me to do so.
(Did I mention that I haven’t had coffee yet?)

That’s it for this award…time to get some coffee!

When it comes to suicide prevention, EveryDay Matters. In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day and Suicide Prevention Month, we thank those that work in a community and take action every day. View our ‘thank you’ ad in National Council’s Suicide Prevention special issue.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 3000 people on average commit suicide daily. Suicide rates are at an all time high for Veterans. In addition, for every person who commits suicide, 20 or more others attempt to end their lives.

About one million people die by suicide each year (WHO). World Suicide Prevention Day, which first started in 2003, is recognized annually on Sept. 10. World Suicide Prevention Day aims to:

  1. Raise awareness that suicide is preventable
  2. Improve education about suicide
  3. Spread information about suicide awareness
  4. Decrease stigmatization regarding suicide
