Dealing with anger and other blocks to love. I wrote a blog post that has my best tool for dealing with anger—the Love Letter inspired by John Gray. I highly recommend learning this method, as well as some other tools I have found to help me stay more and more in a state of peace, love and joy. Click here
I highly recommend the online Nonviolent Communication Academy they have some great free resources, use the ticket below!

Organizing Classes offered: I am looking for people to have organizing parties in their home. I will demonstrate FAST organizing using the simple techniques I have developed to get a room or closet or whole house (depending on how bad it is) decluttered in a few hours. I will charge $120 for the time, and this is split among the people who attend the class, with the hostess or host getting the time free for hosting the party. Afterwards we can have snacks (everyone bring something) and talk about what happened and I can answer questions. Anyone up for this? Contact Patricia 479-313-0414 www.simplifiedliving.com
