Take 15 minutes

WELCOME!  I am so glad you are here.  Every Wednesday I will be sharing (1) tip to inspire you in leading a simpler life.  It won’t be anything hard or something I haven’t tried myself.  Living a simple life is a conscious choice made up of small steps every day.  So here is our small step for today.
