Maintaining a home is an endless task that can often get the better of us. Weâre continually scrolling through articles and pictures on how to simplify our lives, but it can often feel like we need to complete a thousand steps first before we can start. Whereâs the balance? Whatâs the secret? How can I get there? Itâs almost as if the solutions being offered are causing us more stress.
Â Iâm going to tell you a secret my mom shared with me-there is no gold medal for the cleanest, most organized house on the block. Believe it or not, a random judge will not appear at the threshold of your home and ask to inspect and score your abode. Trust me, Iâm a Professional Organizer, I would know. Donât sweat your mess like itâs a ticking time bombâ¦it wonât blow!
There is no right or wrong when organizing. Whatever system feels comfortable for you is the right way. If youâre feeling overwhelmed with your home and havenât a clue where to begin, start small. Pick a drawer in your kitchen or a shelf in your cupboard. Even if you simply pick away at a square foot a day, youâre doing it, which is half the battle. For most of us, dedicating four hours a day to simply organizing just isnât possible. There are no regulations for things like this. Itâs what you can put forth at the end of your already busy day. Find your own balance. It might be twenty minutes or an hour.
Over time youâll see your results and feel better for it. Remember, Rome wasnât built in a day so be easy on your self. Maintaining a home is a full time job in itself and often we donât give ourselves enough credit that we just simply keep it running let alone colour coded!
Life is messy. Itâs full of upâs and downâs, inâs and outâs, expectations and surprises. However, we always manage to find our way through it and if we can do it while being a little more organized along the wayâ¦so much the better. And do you want to know the best part? If you canât for the life of you face the disorganization and just want it done, we’re always hereÂ to help you through it!
