"Are YOU living in CHAOS? (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) Do you feel overwhelmed, overextended, and overdrawn? Hopeless and you don't know where to start? Don't worry friend, we've been there, too."

This is one of the opening paragraphs on a favorite website of mine, (Just remember "flylady" because you can get there using dot com or dot net. I love it!)

Originally FlyLady was created to help "messies" deal with decluttering their homes. However, she's added sections to the website that deal with body clutter (weight issues) and financial clutter. She wants us to FACE our finances (FACE - Financial Awareness Continually Empowers). You may have the perfect house, weigh the perfect amount, eat healthy, and have no spending issues... but that is NOT me!

Flylady specializes in 15 minutes sessions. You can do anything for 15 minutes. Sometimes we spend a whole lot more time putting off doing something, which if we would just do it; it would be done before we even know it. I can see the spiritual side of this as well. How many times do we put off praying or reading our Bible until we have more time? If we would just sit down and do it, not only would we feel better, but our souls would as well. I'm not saying we only need 15 minutes of prayer a day - but it's better than nothing, if that's what you're currently doing.

May you find some helpful hints and tools on flylady's website, and find other areas in which you can apply the 15 minute rule to your life.
