Why is it that on the days when life is more hectic then I cannot find anything in my house? Running late, misplacing everything, and I don't seem to have anything under control. It can be an endless cycle when your house is cluttered and it starts affecting your every day life. Coco Chanel said it best: "An interior is the natural projection of the soul." I truly believe that the way my house is presented 24/7 reflects what is going on in my personal life. It shows what is truly going on in my mind and soul. For a long time now the house has remained cluttered. There are stacks and piles everywhere, clothes scattered all over the dresser, and there are still boxes that have not been unpacked since we moved in 3 years ago. I am a self-proclaimed "Pack Rat". I save everything! That is also where my frame of mind has been. My own life feels out of control and hopeless, sometimes just like the mess within my house.
So here's to focusing on making a few changes! Focus on ONE area you can work on TODAY. The other day I organized my kitchen counters, and could finally walk in without feeling a pit in my stomach. It was a like a breath of fresh air to see it so clean and organized. This experience has shown me just how important it is to keep the outside organized, which makes it possible to focus on the inner peace that comes from an organized home.
"When your whole house is organized and running smoothly, you will reap the benefits: You will be saving time, You will be on time, You will be more creative, You will be less wasteful, and You will be more productive and happy." -Me to the Power of We
