Good Morning, Friends! I’ve been gone for quite some time, but I am here today to talk about something that I am quite passionate about….Organizing!
I am a part of an organizing group on Facebook, and as I was perusing the posts and comments, I became a bit sad and a little heartbroken. I never knew or even thought that so many people out there have a true struggle when it comes to handling clutter.
I’ve said this many, many, times before. Your absolute first step is to PURGE, PURGE, PURGE! Get rid of anything that is no longer of use to you. It could be donated, repurposed/relocated, or simply just thrown away. Get it out of your house, in your trunk, and to the donation location of your choice. I make it a point at least once every 3 months to go through my own stuff, as well as have my people go through theirs. Some times, they need a little bit of an extra “push” to get it done, but there is always going to be something lying around that is totally unnecessary. (SIDE NOTE: Do not be afraid to enlist your household mates to help with this. I am sure you didn’t get here on your own) I know it is hard for some to just let things go, but there comes a time when you just need to free yourself of not only the physical clutter, but also the mental clutter as well.
Here is a client of mine that has a super busy schedule and just wanted to be able to come home and relax after a long day. She struggled with unopened mail, packages that were left looked through and discarded, laundry that got out of control, and once she had finally had enough, she reached out to me for help, and we knocked it out. Of course there was homework for them to do in order to help keep this maintained. I check in from time to time, and at last check, all is well.
I am here to encourage you today to be like Nike and JUST DO IT! You will be so glad that you did. It will be freeing. I promise you. You can choose to do it little by little, or you may choose to go all in, and get ‘er done! I’m rooting for you Sis/Bro!
Please feel free to leave any questions in the comments section. I would also love the opportunity to chat with you, so if you so desire, reach out and we could schedule a consult.
Blessings to you ALL!
Don’t just talk about it, BE about it!
