Here are a few of the tips I learned from this eBook.

  1.  Being clutter free means everything has a place and everything is in its place.
  2. Everything should have a purpose (functional or emotional).
  3. If it doesn’t have a purpose, it is clutter.
  4. If you buy a new item, you should get rid on one like item to prevent clutter from growing.
  5. Make de-cluttering fun by listening to music, watching TV, or getting someone to help you.
  6. Make your organizational system user friendly.
  7. Consolidate like items into one area.

Overcoming Adversity

Diet Eman was a young lady when the Nazi’s invaded the Netherlands.

In her book, Diet describes her emotions as she watched the enemy take over her country and commit numerous atrocities.  She talks about her desire to do whatever she could to fight back against the enemy.

Diet became a member of the resistance and helped find safe places for Jews, as well as other people wanted by the Nazi’s.  She willingly risked her life and ended up spending time in a concentration camp.

Her story is like an emotional roller coster ride, filled with triumphs and tragedy.  It is a shinning example of how we can all over come adversity.

Affirm Your Truth

Aaron Kennard’s book, Affirm Your Truth, explains the power of positive thinking and personal affirmations.  The basic premise is summed up in the following two quotes.

  • There is so much to live for, to explore, to be and to do…life can be thrilling…or completely overwhelming.
  • All of our thought habits can be changed by making a conscious decision and then by practicing the new thoughts consistently over time.
