I've been a published author and writer for over 25 years. But beyond my books is my current passion for exploring ideas and experiences that help to create a meaningful, sustainable, compassionate and rewarding life for myself and others on my blog (https://smartliving365.com). Besides that I am healthy, content, and happily married to my best friend and soul mate--Thom! These days I am writing as much as I am able, doing my best to live life fearlessly and full-out....and to always remember, that I get to make it up! ...more

Three Reasons Why It Might Be Time To Downshift

Before getting my first Driver’s License, my father insisted I learn to drive by using a stick-shift.  I drove that type of car for years and grew to appreciate the gears and how they work—including the downshift.  So although the vast majority of cars now automatically shift for us, the downshift is still very much […]

“Real luxury is not working like a maniac to take an expensive vacation--it is living a life you enjoy every day.”
Kathy Gottberg, Rightsizing * a Smart Living 365 Guide to Reinventing Retirement

“Any time I need other people to tell me that I’m valuable or okay, then they have power over me.”
Kathy Gottberg, Finding Grace-A Transformational Journey

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Helen Keller, The Open Door

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
Rumi

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
Mary Oliver

“Listen--are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?”
Mary Oliver
