WHY I STARTED DOING 10 PUSH-UPS A DAY
At the beginning of 2018, two people I follow on Instagram were challenging their followers to commit to to doing 18,000 push-ups in 2018. This would be 50 push-ups a day for 350 days total (allowing for 15 grace days throughout the year).
I thought it was a great idea and something I might enjoy doing… but the reality is that 50 push-ups is a whole lot of push-ups, especially for someone like me who hasn’t really done many push-ups in th...e last year or two. (Okay, who am I kidding? I don’t think I’ve done ANY push-ups this past year!)
Push-ups just aren’t the thing I usually think to do when I want to get in a workout. I’ll run or walk or do planks or lunges, but I’m just not that into push-ups.
But I was still intrigued with this idea. However, I just really felt like it might be a little much to go from no push-ups at all to 18,000 push-ups in a year. So, in the spirit of what Job Acuff teaches in his book, Finish, I decided to cut down the goal.
Yup. That’s what I said: I cut down the goal...

10 IDEAS TO EARN MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME
Melodee writes, "A friend of mine travels 50 miles a day to a job she doesn’t like — she’s waiting for the day she can collect her pension and social security. This woman is an artist and a great home stager, yet she spends her days gritting her teeth at a job she can’t wait to leave.
In my opinion, life is too short to spend time waiting for tomorrow....
I left corporate America in 2008, to start a virtual trademark paralegal service. The first day I opened my “virtual doors” I thought my phone would ring off the hook. When it didn’t, I needed to find additional ways to make money. I remembered the term “multiple streams of income” and decided to put that concept into action..."

21 SURPRISING STATS ABOUT HOW MUCH CLUTTER WE ACTUALLY HAVE
Wow! This article on Becoming Minimalist was pretty astounding.
Here’s a snippet:...
Today, increasing data is being collected about our homes, our shopping habits, and our spending. The research is confirming our observation: we own too much stuff. And it is robbing us of life.
Here are 21 surprising statistics about our clutter that help us understand how big of a problem our accumulation has actually become.
1. There are 300,000 items in the average American home (LA Times).
2. The average size of the American home has nearly tripled in size over the past 50 years (NPR).
3. And still, 1 out of every 10 Americans rent offsite storage—the fastest growing segment of the commercial real estate industry over the past four decades. (New York Times Magazine)...

Is it REALLY possible to make a part-time income from blogging? This post will answer that question in detail (and it's super practical for anyone who is looking for real information and real numbers!)
I am sharing something today that I rarely share--a look into just how much I make per ho...ur as a blogger and how I make that hourly wage.
This is not a brag article, it is an inspiring article. If I can do this almost anyone can.
Truth is there are plenty bloggers out there that make way more than me.
But I feel pretty blessed to make what I make, and my desire with this post is to help others take the first step to creating a blog if they too feel it is something they want to do.

Kristen writes, "For me, one of the many sacrifices I’ve made while trying to stay on a budget is not spending as much to purchase clothes for myself. Instead of spending a lot on new clothes, I have been focusing on getting some “new” pieces for my wardrobe by tweaking existing items in my closet.
Here are just a few ways to save money and stretch your wardrobe, with links to projects I’ve done..."...
