Have you ever visited any of the 5Minutesfor______ sites? I believe there are eight of them ranging from 5MinutesforGoingGreen to 5MinutesforSpecialNeeds. Each provide regular posts that strive to encourage you on that particular journey. And bonus– every post can be read in five minutes or less. My kind of reading!

Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Simply striving,
