I am Melissa. Thanks for taking the time to stop and take a look at my site.

Much of what I write about is the movement towards a cleaner, simpler, less cluttered environment.  It is about sharing the challenges we encounter as we make the transition to a more earth-friendly place. I want to pass on my beliefs and develop these new habits by living them for my family. Hopefully, along the way, it inspires others to do the same or hits a note with those already travelling down this road.

I am on a journey to clear out the clutter in my life. To simplify our living space so that life is filled with the things we need and value. Decluttering is not just about tossing out your stuff. It is becoming aware and evaluating what you really need and want for you and your family.  It is a state of mind – a  mental shift of discovering what makes me tick and adjusting my choices and my surroundings to reflect it.

Writing is one of those things that I have have always done. When I was younger and in school, it was about keeping a diary and sorting out my thoughts. As I grew up it became a release of energy and now as an adult, I find it is both those things.   Something new though is wanting to share my thoughts with anyone who may want to listen, who may agree or need to read about someone who is going through the same challenges and joys of life. It would be nice if a person or to happens upon this blog and finds something they relate to but if they don’t that is alright because writing this down is also a way to just sort it all out and reaffirm that I’m headed in the right direction.
