Honor Memorial Day

Join me in taking the time to honor those who gave their lives to serve our country. Let's make this day more about those men and women than about the beginning of summer vacation and cookouts. While those things are great, please take a moment to remember those for whom the holiday was created. Please, if you have a loved one you'd like to honor, send their name and branch of service and I'll list them. I'll start with my grandfather:

James Payden, Army

Purcell Matthews, Navy from Tia R. Chase

Conditions of Forgiveness?

If someone has offended you, do you require an apology before offering forgiveness? What if an apology never comes, what then?

Comfort Level

Do you feel the need to fill every moment of your life with "something" to do, or are you comfortable with free time? It's sort of like being comfortable with silence (or not).

After Birthday Presents

So after a delightful Mother's Day dinner, my sister-in-law and I strolled into the Jimmy Choo boutique for a little after dinner shopping. It was then I fell in love (or a very deep like) with the Jimmy Choo travel bag (in red). To my delight, it was bargained priced (and a steal) at JUST $1995. So, I thought, since it's my birthday month and I celebrate the entire month (who doesn't??), I'd be willing to be a little selfless and help all of you all out there who are just scratching your heads about what to get me for a present before the month is out. Never fear, I've come to your rescue. Oh, and there's no need to wrap it-I'll just take it as is. HILARIOUS, isn't it??

Think, Don't Speak

Just because you think it doesn't mean you need to say it.

Lonely Visions

Everyone will not understand or accept your vision. Visionaries often walk alone.

Confusion Magnets

Ever feel as if you're in a force field of confusion and negativity, where all the people around you are sprouting nothing but confusion and negativity? Do you know those types of people who never have a kind word to say or never have a positive experience to share? Do you know those people for whom it's always gloom and doom, even when you have great news to share? For those types of people, confusion is a way of life, and if you're not careful, instead of you affecting a positive change in their lives, they'll bring you down and negatively affect YOUR life. Don't fall victim to the naysayers. Avoid them, if possible, at all costs!! You're too valuable to spend your time with anyone who does not have your best interest at heart and who's goal is to encourage and uplift you. Seek positivity in those you allow into your world!!

I Can's/I Will's

Life can be grand. Life can be trying, and challenging. But that doesn't mean you have to accept it as it comes. You have the power to change and the tool to do it. The tool is a powerful muscle that sits in your mouth- THE TONGUE. Replace each "I can't" with an "I can" (and then do it). Replace each "I won't" with an "I will" (and then do it). Soon you'll find yourself with more positive thoughts and behaviors and your life will seem limitless. You will have made a change toward the positive!!

Positivity Week Challenge

This week, I challenge you to a week of living positively. If you accept the challenge, (and I pray you will), all I ask you to do is to replace each negative thought with a positive one, coupled with an actionable behavior. Keep track in your journal, or whatever method you prefer. At the end of the week, review to see how much more positive your life has been. So, please share this challenge with everyone you know. I'd love to hear all about your success so please share!!

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!!
