Being Green

Anyone remember Kermit the Frog's anthem, "It's not Easy Being Green"? Okay, good, but that has nothing to do with this topic, other than commonality of words, and that I just liked it as a child (and still do). I digress. Now, on with the actual topic. We've all heard of "Being Green or Going Green", which simply means that we strive to be eco-friendly, or try to reduce our carbon footprint, or conserve energy, or use less of this and more of that-you get the point. I'm all for it!! I do my SMALL part to make a big difference (I hope). One way I try to "Go Green" and hopefully help save a tree is by dually recycling my paper. Huh? Twice? Well, technically, I reuse twice and then recycle, but I liked the sound of the first one better-dually recycling. When I'm printing or copying in my office or for personal use and it's just for me or to file, I do my darndest to use both sides of the paper. So if you were to visit me right now, you'd find "used" paper in my printer. Yes, yesterday's old is today's new. Call it cheap or frugal, but I call it being ultra smart (if I do say so myself-and I do). It's kinda easy being green. Okay, now I know you want to see the video (even if you deny it), so here it is: Here's also an article that takes a comically different perspective on the subject. For the record, I wrote this BEFORE I read the article, so I take credit for the Kermit reference (SMILE):,9171,1686805,00.html.

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!!
