17000 Days is about remembering that life is short and making your best days a common occurrence. It’s about learning to value, savor, enjoy, and seize all of our days. Time is what makes up life–what’s more valuable than that? I’m here to help you make the most of it and build a life you love, whether you’re stuck, lost, or just unwilling to settle for less.

Please sign up for a free subscription to the newsletter! That’s in the form to the right. I have a free ebook called How to be happy (Fairy Dust and Moonbeams Not Included) coming out soon, so sign up to make sure you don’t miss it. The newsletter will also include information on getting unstuck, finding direction, and making your life what you want it to be. I keep it brief and useful, and you can unsubscribe any time, easy as pie.

If you want to know what’s up with the name, check out How Many Days. If you want to know more about me and how the blog got started, try the About page.
