- By:

I am a woman obsessed. You know how it is – even as functioning adults, we all go through that intense worry over a quiet coffee – “who am I - really?” We are always trying to “find” ourselves, our place in the world hierarchy, even if that world is inside your own house. Well, after some serious contemplation, I am going to share some secrets with you. First, most of us don’t have a clue. That’s right.

Simple Habits to Get Your Time Back (Tips from a former procrastinator)

Ever feel like there’s never enough time in the day to get everything done? Or like you blink and it’s time to make supper?

My name is Denise, and I’m a recovering procrastinator. I can remember a time just a few years ago, where I’d spend all morning cooking oatmeal and watching Pretty Little Liars. Suddenly it was past noon, and I’d gotten nothing achieved yet. I had to take control of my time if I wanted to get everything done. It meant and giving up the following:

Mindlessly scrolling through Facebook posts that I do not care about whatsoever;

Welcome to Morning Beans. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee, pull up a chair, and let's chat! I'm Helene and I am many things: writer, artist, mother, daughter, wife and friend. I write for all of us: the overworked homemaker, the executive goddesses, the poets, artists, and the wild hearted women

I believe life is about living your dreams, and sharing your story. And we all have stories. It's about being human and sometimes fallible.

Come visit often, and let my words move you, motivate you, and make you smile.

I believe in the power of words, in colorful conversations (often with strangers) and in the bright spark of friendship.

Welcome new friends.
