As we enter another year, we all must Be Intentional about investing in the health of our mind and body, as well as our space. The scripture says that we should “prosper and be in health, even as our souls prosper”. We often think of prosperity as increase in our money and finances, but in actuality, to prosper means to be strong and flourishing; to thrive and succeed in what we do. We must invest in ourselves, so that we can be all that we can be, for US and for all those around us. Now is not the time to keep moving forward. We cannot afford to dwell on what’s behind us, but focus on what’s ahead!
Daily journaling forces us to be more self-reflective, and this can be an important element of self-care.
Plan our days, weeks, months… Time is valuable, so we need to manage our time well.
Learn a new skill or strengthen a currrent one. It’s always important to continue to learn and grow.
Daily exercise has been linked to more energy, more productivity, reduced stress, improved brain power, better memory, and even increased creativity.
Eat right each day, fueling our body with nutrients. When we focus on eating healthier choices, we will feel better and have more energy.
As we move rapidly into 2023, I’ve been working diligently to update our website. We’ve been long overdue for a website facelift and this seemed like the ideal time. Our Order Your Steps Enterprise has expanded and grown by pivoting from simply professional organizing and has added a new life coaching component to our portfolio of services. Our goal to minimize the stress and eliminate the frustration associated with having cluttered minds and cluttered spaces for women, career professionals and entrepreneurs all over the world.
So, please let us know how you like our New Look!!
We are setting the stage to be more effective, more efficient, more productive and more prosperous. As we move forward, our focus must be on making room to grow physically, emotional, mentally and spiritually … and continue to hold fast to our dream, our purpose, our destiny.
The question is “Are we spending our time wisely?” Although we are always busy, we should set our priorities on a daily basis. We have the tendency to channel our time & energy into the things that we’d rather do, than the things that we need to do. Identify your time robbers and adjust your day accordingly. We mustn’t settle for those things that are easier but get outside of our comfort zone and meet the challenges of a life that is ever-changing.
“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the heaven: …” Ecclesiastes 3:1
2023 is rapidly approaching! We must Dream Big and Plan for Bigger… Take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed. Let’s focus on our positive accomplishments and not dwell on the negative. It is very difficult to build for Bigger without a firm foundation. We want next year to be a year of self-empowerment for us all. A year for us to have the confidence, in who will be and what we are capable of, and to take at least one step closer to our goal, dream and purpose. A dream without action is just a wish.
It’s always the right time for us to seize the opportunity to learn, grow, and be empowered to make our dreams a reality!
Close your Eyes and Visualize a Place of Peace, Harmony, and Grace…
A Place to Relax where you can Unclutter your Mind…
Create an Atmosphere that will produce Clarity and Focus …
“See More Floor”
Over the years, as a professional organizer, whenever I was in the process of decluttering a room, or space, I would always tell my clients that you want to “See More Floor”! To be honest, I never really thought a lot about. But I am currently working with a client on a HUGE organizing project and our mantra is “See More Floor”! So this is my advice to you…
Focus on one area, room or space at a time. Unfortunately, most people will start in one area, get distracted and then move to another area.
Start Small and Stay Focused!
Don’t spend hours and hours at any one time. Take regular breaks.
Now take some time to clear your mind, do something relaxing like watch TV or read a book and then come back to it. It may take longer, but your space will stay uncluttered longer and you won’t become discouraged and wore out during the process.
Remember that a whole New “Life After Clutter”, but it will require a Mindset Shift!
You may not remember, but we started this major organizing project earlier this year. My client has been out of the house for several years and now we need to sort and purge throughout the entire house as we prepare for renovations early next year. We are ready for the first of many Purple Heart pick-ups. We have over 16 huge bags of just clothes and shoes. Here are a few project update pics…
Next month, we start working on the basement. Stay tuned for more pics…
