Organizing expert, Monica Ricci, recently invited me to write an article for her blog, Your Life. Organized. She is a wonderful person and I am honored to share some organizing wisdom with our readers.
Here's the post:
So you want to be organized. Your tired of having the heavy feeling every time you step into your basement, kitchen or bedroom. Well, you need to make some changes.
Albert Einstein said,
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Being organized takes work.
Making changes can be scary.
Though the benefit of getting organized to your life and soul will be profound.
This isn't about getting your entire home looking as if it belongs in Better Homes & Gardens magazine (not that there is anything wrong with that). But rather getting your closet, desk or countertop organized and feeling better to you. Your success of a small organizing project will lead you to conquer the next one.
The holiday season involves more stuff coming into your home. It is very important to work at letting go of items that have lost their purpose in your life, especially if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed in your home now.
Your transformation begins with the first item you place in a bag to be removed from your home. The second item will be easier. Soon you will begin to feel lighter, the air will seem fresher and a sense of freedom will fill your soul.
As difficult as change can be, it leads to something better.
What are you ready to change?
