Hi, I’m Janet! I’m a writer, educator, blogger, Mom, sister, wife…I wear many hats.
I’m sure you do, too. And that’s why The Crazy Simple exists. To help myself and you, my awesome readers, make this this life thing just a bit easier. It’s always going to be somewhat crazy but I’ve discovered that with intention and clarity, life can be a bit more simple as well.
You’ll find traces of my story in many of these posts: raising littles, enjoying (!?) the teenage years, teaching, living with illnesses, aging parents, managing a post-Covid world, traveling as much as I can, and being joyful & full of life while growing older.
Currently I’m in graduate school to become a therapist. However, my disclaimer is that this site is not a therapy site at all. In fact, what I write about here is due in large part to what I’ve learned on the other side of the couch.
Thanks for being here and…
Welcome to your Crazy Simple.
Why The Crazy Simple Exist?
The goal of The Crazy Simple is to make people’s lives healthier, simpler, more joyful, and more mindful. You’ll find articles, classes, videos, and more to help you move forward in your life. Mindfulness is difficult for me–my mind dashes from idea to idea, from distraction to distraction. Like many people, I live in my mind.
Once I started intentional and mindful practices, I discovered a strength I didn’t realize I had. Along with that, I try to improve at living intentionally, and parenting intentionally. When I do I am happier, less scattered, and feel a bit in the zone. I hope to share some of these wonderful mindsets, practices, and habits with you.
So, join me on this journey as we explore the tapestry of life through the lens of experience, as we navigate the joys and challenges of each passing year, and as we celebrate the vibrancy that comes from living a life well-lived. Together, we’ll continue to learn, grow, and find meaning in the ever-changing world that surrounds us.
