New Year’s Day is barely a week behind us and, if you’re like me, those resolutions aren’t aging well. Every year I have great intentions–I’ll exercise every day. I’ll eat right every meal. My children will love every craft, outfit, and menu I pick out. My house will be tidy every night. And then I wake up, laugh at myself, and start the next day with mismatched socks and a take out menu.
This year, I resolved to just not do it. I wouldn’t make grand, sweeping promises about how to make my life better–my life is pretty great right now! I can’t make myself perfect overnight, but I can make my hard work go further by working smarter so that I have more time to do the things I love with the people I love.
Maybe I’m reflecting because it’s my birthday (did I mention that?), but birthdays, like new years, are time for reflection and, let’s be honest, presents. So my present to myself, and to you, is my new brand, Cleverful Living. My greatest joy is to outsmart the things in life that are mundane, time consuming, or just plain annoying. I love to turn them into something quick, fun, and surprisingly easy. So it hit me… That is being cleverful, so I am calling my new website Cleverful Living, because I’m going to share all things clever in life and the kitchen. It’s no coincidence I’m launching this today–you’ve had a week to go at your new perfect life and I bet right about now you’re feeling tired, stretched thin, and anything but invigorated. Cleverful Living will help you enjoy the things we all have to accomplish every day by sharing work smarter ideas that make it fun to get you on the right track.
If there’s anything I’ve learned in my (ahem) some-odd years on Earth, it’s that I can’t do all the things, but I can do some of the things really well. So a happy birthday to me, and a more Cleverful life for you, because today is the day to get started and I can’t wait to share my ideas with you.
