Death of Time

I recently read the classic book, Madame Bovary and watched the movie as well. It is a wonderful story and I highly suggest you read the book and or watch the movie version. No cheating-read the book first. I won't retell the story here, but she was one of the unhappiest and most unfulfilled characters I've ever read about. In the book, the author told of her boredom by saying that even the striking of the chime on a clock served to announce and remind her of the "death of another hour". What a sad state to view time in that way. Yes, with each passing second, time that has passed will never be recaptured. It is gone forever. But if you use your time wisely and make the most of as much of it as you can, you won't be as negative as Madame Bovary was about it's passing. You will anticipate the joy that can come in the next, second, minute, hour and beyond.

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
