You are in the right place if:
- You feel overwhelmed and like you’re drowning in responsibilities!
- You’ve ever wished that life came with an instruction book
- You need reassurance that there is light at the end of the tunnel (and that it’s not a train!)
- You’re looking for tips and advice to help you juggle your many roles and responsibilities
- You want to spend time focusing on the important things in life
- You recognize that life is a journey and want to make the most of it
Hi there! I’m Shelley and I’m so glad you stopped by.
Have you ever looked at your life and wondered, “Is this all there is? Shouldn’t life be more than just responsibility, obligations, and chores? ” Or perhaps the question you’re asking is, “How on earth do I get everything done so that I can focus on what’s really important?”
I’ve found that many women struggle with having so many demands and responsibilities that they feel they’re losing themselves. I know because I’ve been there. For years I described my life as “juggling chainsaws”. I had so many different roles to play and responsibilities to manage that I felt I couldn’t drop one without serious risk to myself, my family, and those around me. It’s exhausting – both mentally and physically. That’s why my passion is to provide solutions and encouragement to busy moms who are juggling home, family, and work.
But isn’t a woman who is in her prime a dottery old woman sitting in a rocking chair drinking tea?
Maybe somewhere, but definitely not here. PRIME is how I view my life, organize it, and work to make it better.
Each letter in the word PRIME represents one component of a well-balanced life.
PRIME, as I define it is this:
P = your Physical self
We all want to feel and look good. This is where you’ll find information about health, beauty, and fashion.
R = your Relationships
As women, our lives are often centered around caring for others. This is where we’ll talk about our significant others, our families, our friends, and our communities. We love ’em….but they can be a handful.
I = your Inner Self
This is where you’ll find information about personal development, balancing work and life (in other words, getting your act together), and education (both yours and your child’s).
M = your Money
Lots of things affect our finances: What we feed our family, how we take care of our home, and whether or not we’re organized. Lots of us are watching our spending in some areas so that we can spend it in the areas that are most important to us.
E = your need to Escape
Life can be tough and making time for fun is essential. Escape is about purposely and intentionally finding ways to bring joy into our lives because for most of us, the big moments in life are few and far between. What brings you joy and when was the last time you experienced it? What can you incorporate into your life and home to make it run more smoothly so that you’re calmer and more relaxed?
The PRIME motto is: Get the little stuff done as quickly and cheaply as you can so that you can focus on the big stuff.
So are you a woman in her PRIME? It’s not about age.
On a more personal note, I’m married and have three young adult children (Bubba, Music Man, and Butterfly). A former school teacher and administrator, I’ve recently returned to my hometown after many years of living away. I’m a bit of a political junkie and I have issues I care passionately about. I’m a huge fan of disaster movies, trashy novels, jewelry, bath products, home decorating, and comfortable shoes. I believe that there’s more than one way to skin a cat, that people can tell you no but they can’t kill you, and that a little vanilla in your drink makes everything better.
So grab your beverage of choice and stay awhile! You need a few minutes to chill out and relax and I’m here to help.
