So here’s the thing. I’ve always considered myself an organized person. As I mentioned in my previous post, I believe it’s a gift I’ve been given to just lean toward order. Well, since emerging myself into the entrepreneurship of organizing for others, I’ve realized and I have to confess. There is so much about organizing I don’t yet know. It’s like I’m a student and a teacher at the same crossroad. I’m learning more every day, yet I’m teaching others how to follow. I suppose that is how it should be in every profession, but I’ll admit my pride didn’t allow me to think otherwise. I’ve humbly noticed that I am not all that amazing at organizing yet. But, what I do have? Motivation. The second thing I want to admit, or declare rather… Everyone has the capability to be organized too. What does it take to be organized? I’ll tell you, it’s your habits. Although I pride myself in being organized, and I keep a pretty orderly schedule and home, here’s the thing I can’t avoid, it takes time, and it takes energy. Being organized is a consistent and habitual process. Maybe that sounds daunting to you, and maybe it sounds that way because you’re in deep: maybe you’ve got months, or even years of clutter and disorder to contend with. That’s where I come in, or one of the many admirable organizers in your area. Our job? To help you tackle what seems overwhelming and show you that once it’s done, all you have to do is spend a little time maintaining.

So here’s the other thing, I actually tried to imagine what it would be like if I didn’t always love organizing, would I feel overwhelmed? Would I be calling someone to help me? Would I avoid the problem and just hope I get better naturally? It’s hard to say for sure, but what is certain for me, I love keeping order. I love when I wake up, I know where all my belongings are, and I know my day can be tackled. I feel peace about sleeping at night and knowing what I have to do the next day. I love that I can share my gift with others and inspire them to feel these same things. The investment of time and effort to keep things straight is well worth the return of peace of mind, and room for creativity, inspiration, and the things you truly love.
