“To make emotionally intelligent choices, it’s important to make sure that it really is your steady, calm inner voice that you’re in touch with. If you’re relaxed when you hear it and it gives you the same message over time, chances are good that it’s your inner voice……Emotional intelligence is the opposite of emotional chaos; it’s emotional clarit, when your head and heart are aligned in peaceful knowing and you are in full agreement with yourself. This is the strong, tranquil message of your inner voice. ”
Extract from , The Art of Leading Yourself Tap the power of your Emotional Intelligence by Randi B Noyes
Couldn’t have put it better myself!

I love the font Comic Sans, its friendly and I’ve had an unusual amount of pleasure from it over the years. I’ve used it a lot and was surprised and a bit miffed when I discovered a strange website this morning: ban comic sans. It’s amusing and a little sad. …. but as always a silver linning – this site has given me an idea for the structure of a site that I want to have soon. x

The true story of Antwone Fisher a black american boy who survived physical and sexual abuse at the hands of his foster family. It’s a moving film based in a Navy Camp. It stars Derek Luke who plays Antwone Fisher as a young man and Denzel Washington as the Navy Psychiatrist who helps him unravel the reasons for his agressive attitude towards his peers.
For a very opposing view of this film, have a look at this BBC review.

It was a long time since I’d been to a dinner party! I met lots of new people and it’s got me in the mood to host my own – now all I need is a table.

What a wonderful learning resource. This site W3 Schools teaches you HTML, CSS, Browser Scripting and more. Its all free, you just pay for certification. Amazing!
I taught myself Dreamweaver to build my site, Be Clutter Free a couple of years ago but knowing a little bit about html has helped me to understand more. There are some things you can’t do in Dreamwever without knowing a little bit of code, like numbered lists or bulleted lists.
Wow! What a fantastic resource.

Yesterday I downloaded a free trial of SmartDraw. Within three hours I had created detailed floor plans of my whole house. It was so, so easy to do and I have no experience whatsoever with technical graphics packages.
As a clutter clearer I often need to organise spaces. This will be a perfect tool for me. The only disadvantage I can see is that it does not do elevations.
The programme includes a whole host of other features and uses which I haven’t looked into yet.
Grateful to SmartDraw!!! Thanks very much.
