You may think this is a simple task for some. For me, notsomuch. I am NOT an organizer. I am actually too OCD to organize. Weird. huh? If there is not a step by step picture guide, I start to over organize then the anxiety sets in, then I explode into 1 million pieces. Or that is what my brain feels like happens. So I end up going the other route ...ignore until I am able to come back to center. When I am back to center, I am able to clearly see how to organize/visualize and get the job done. (This is why I am a huge lover of Pinterest) Pictures for us visual learners/do-ers.
I am going to push through, work on my anxiety, hopes it helps keep me busy and motivated. Hope that our rooms and lives become much more manageable. I recently organized the kids room (well mostly) and now, cleaning up their toys is SO.MUCH.EASIER! Everything has a place, The toys have homes. I am able to find them. The kids are learning to put things back where we keep them ... Yes, Organization Makes life easier... There, I said it. And with that said, it made me realize that once it gets organized, It IS easier to keep up, and find things, and Maintain and all of that Makes my Life Easier. Parenting is always in need of being made easier.
So, tossing my vow into the well. Here's to 40 days of Organizing and making a better life for my family. I am sure I will have many life lessons learned from this. Are you participating in Lent in some way? I'd love to hear and support you and how you recognize this season.
