Join me to make tiny changes to get your life back on track!
Happy New Year!
Did you know that September is the new January?
With the transition from summer relaxation to the joy of cozy Fall vibes, we naturally want to change our routines and habits.
And we have the momentum to do it!
So let’s take advantage of that “New Year” momentum with the September SHIFT Challenge.
The SHIFT Challenge
A shift is a “slight change in position, direction, or tendency”.
And just like the “shift” key on your keyboard capitalizes letters to show importance, we’ll be shifting our lives to more accurately reflect what’s truly most important.
Because I’m a nerd, SHIFT is actually an acronym for some areas we’ll be focusing on this month:
Let’s shift our money habits from aimless spending to purposeful saving.
Let’s shift our homes from cluttered chaos to beautiful calm.
Let’s shift our mindsets from hard-driving performance and perfectionism to quiet acceptance of ourselves.
Let’s shift our focus from the distractions of life to engaging in our most important relationships.
Let’s shift the way we spend our time so we do more of what really matters.
Each week I’ll share simple, tiny, practical steps you can take in each area. You can choose to try one of the, or if you’re feeling ambitious, try them all.
But we’re not simply adding more items to the to-do list.
SHIFT is about refocusing on our top priorities and realigning ourselves with our values.
Ladies, we’re gonna get our “SHIFT” together!

I’m late to the party, but I’m in! All the areas sound good, but I’m focusing on savings and home right now.
Yay! It’s not too late. 🙂 Thanks for joining us Terri!
I’m in. I would like to focus on organizing a few areas of our home that still have some clutter, and I would like to create a better cleaning schedule so I know what areas have been cleaned each week/month.
Yay! Thanks for joining us Amber!
I am really looking forward to this. I have been feeling the need for a shift in my life lately, and I’m hoping this will help me!!:) I love so much of the stuff that you do!!:) Thanks for sharing God’s gifts to you with me!:)
Aw, thanks Larisa!

I am going to focus on savings & home!!! The main focus will be HOME because goodness knows it needs some help 🙂
I needed this challenge!
I have guests arriving in October so help regarding clutter will especially be a plus for me.
I also receive your emails!
Funnily enough in the past few days I’ve been getting a kind of “new year” feeling with the need to implement some changes. I’ve just seen your email and remember doing this last year.
I definitely need to focus on savings and identity this time around..
I love this…I’m absolutely in! I’ll be working on how I spend my time. I’m really looking forward to this challenge.

Sounds awesome! I want to start saving money!
I love this challenge idea! I would like to focus on the family idea since we are all going back to daycare, school and work in September. I want to make sure we remember to have strong family connections and enjoy each other when we are together.
Love it Katie!
I have thought of September as the ‘new year’ for many years, especially because my husband is a teacher, so it has always been the time of getting back to our home routine. This year is definitely different, with both my kids in college (one commuting and one home doing classes remotely) and me working from home (still!), so there will be some added challenges! I have started decluttering, I just want to get rid of so much stuff! Trying to be patient with myself. And I need to get into the habit of getting to bed earlier and getting up on time!
Wonderful timing! I started decluttering at the beginning of August. And I am also going to focus on spending less in September!
“…September is the new January.” I love that & I’m in! I will work on being more purposeful with my family, but will also try a few things in the other areas.
Just to clarify–since I already receive your emails, I do not need to join again for this challenge? Looking forward to receiving the SHIFT vision page & getting started!
Thanks for joining us Kelly! You should have received an email last night with a link to the vision page, but if not, please go ahead and rejoin using the link in the post above. You can use the link on the Contact page linked at the top of the site if you have any trouble. 🙂
Love the September SHIFT as this is my other “new year” time with school starting and being a high school assistant principal. We are virtual to start so I’m focusing on home. Getting things organized and rid of if necessary and getting repairs and any new things done in hopes that the family can gather here for the holidays.
Count me in!! I need to shift my mind to savings. I want to focus on a no spending; no Amazon spending in September!
I’m in!! Focusing on Home decluttering and Family!!! 🙂

How funny! Before I read the email about the September Shift I was thinking of doing some sort of personal challenge for the month of September for Journaling and challenge myself to writing every day in my Journal. So I am in and have my Shift worksheet!
Yay! Thanks for joining in Amanda!
Thank you! I am a big fan of your web-site. I believe I need to improve on the home. Would like to be more organized.
I’m in; been working on the Home aspect but on hold lately. Also I’ve recognized some subversive spending. I made a goal last week to be more purposeful in Finances… which will lower some stress.
Looking forward to SHIFT! I need to focus on my identity. With everything happening this year I’ve been trying to keep on top of all the other areas but feel lost in the shuffle. With school starting up, hoping for a new routine with time devoted to self care
