We acquire and store so much clutter. In our drawers and closets I have so much crap! I mean crap I think I will use someday, will need later; crap I don’t ever use!

I am on a mission to simplify this stuff. I started last weekend and did all the kitchen drawers. That felt great! The next step this weekend is my master bath cabinets and then my closet.

I clean out my closet several times a year and I continue to impulsively purchase more and more clothes and shoes and I am just over it!

If I would chose to use and be happy with what I have and live more frugally I could retire sooner and work less now!

When I started this blog in 2015 I wanted to quit drinking and get in great shape. Over the past 5 years I’ve done neither of those things but I did manage to create a very successful real estate business.

Now it’s time to reach that feeling of “I love my new life” in 2020. This includes quitting drinking, lots of exercise, painting daily and simplifying/frugal living.

I’m excited to see how it will look in a few months. How will I feel?

It’s time to give myself a true chance to reach my best potential.

What are you doing different in 2020? Please share in the comments below!

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.

  1. Hey Lisa Marie. If you can create a successful real estate business, I’m confident you can excel in whatever area you want to focus on. Just remember that business didn’t happen over night and took a lot of hard dedicated work. Our society pushes the message everything must happen immediately and perfectly or we are failures. Treat life like a marathon and train train train. I’m going to continue on eating better and working out more consistently. I look forward to hearing more about your journey and supporting you along the way. One last thing…getting sober is a game changer! For me, it was that missing piece of my puzzle.

  2. Getting more toned and trying to eat more pescatarian.

    Also, I want more great collaborations with retailers from my fashion IG account. Joyousstyling. Also, More Travel to new places. Also I want to continue to have another great year in sales as a Woman’s Health Representative. 😊🥰


  3. I’m having a no buy year and focusing on my well being. So decluttering like you, drawing every day, and getting more organised and learning Spanish.
    Join the sober club. It’s the best thing I did last year.
