Over the next several months, we will be sharing info on “DeCluttering Your Mind”! Unfortunately, as women, we don’t always acknowledge to ourselves that we get tired of trying to keep all of the many balls of life that we juggle in the air on a daily basis! As we begin another journey of Ordering Your Steps, please share with us the number of hours of RESTFUL sleep that you get each night….
Although it may be hard to believe… my mission is not to simply persuade you get rid of cherished possessions. With tender care, I help facilitate you through the organizing process. I must be patience, but at times, firm to guide you through making very difficult decisions. I understand the emotional attachment we have to our things that are now a lifetime of memories….
Some of us are transitioning into another phase of Living. Some are considering retirement and others have already retired. All the children grown, we are empty nesters, and possibly the family home has just become much too big? Maybe a smaller place with make more sense… No stairs, no lawn to mow, not as many rooms to clean!
In many cases, it’s been 25+ years in one house and we have accumulated a lifetime of stuff. So now it is time for us to decide what we really want to keep and it may no longer be an issue of what “stuff” the children want. Many of us are discovering that our children are not emotionally attached to the things that we hold dear. So where do we begin? A professional organizer, like me, may be just the answer!
Well, something to think about???
As we get older, we have discovered that our children (to put it bluntly) really don’t want our cherished possessions. I have two daughters and I was saving my wedding dress, but guess what? … So even if you are not considering moving, you may want us to help you with those somewhat cluttered areas of your family home, i.e. basement, attic, storage unit, etc.
School has started… We suggest that you set the clock 30 min. early to allow a little extra time to snooze…. and time to make sure the kids get out of bed, because you may have to ask more than once. Then….
• Breakfast… VERY IMPORTANT! We all need energy to get through our day. Our children need nutrition to stay focused.
• Wash, dress and get ready.
• PRAY for your kids.
• PRAY for your patience with them! They may have had a rough day too. Reading, Writing and ‘rithmetic can be taxing on the brain.
Make a to-do list, to include what happens after school, i.e. family time, dinner, homework, etc. Remember, patience!
