Hiring a professional Home Organization Consultant could be the answer to your prayers! (And if you're local you in Grapevine, TX, contact me for in-person professional organizing services!)
But, if you are looking for a professional organizer to be your magic fairy that can wave her wand and make everything better, it may be time to rethink things~
This is a difficult page to write- because it forces us to examine ourselves. Human nature tends to want to find a crutch- to make excuses and find someone to fix it. But the answers are within YOU- if you'll look.
As a professional organizer, I'd love nothing more than to come into your home, snap my fingers, and make everything fly to their correct space. In a sense, I can do that, but the results will not be long-lasting.
The truth is, a magic fairy, aka, your home organization consultant, will do nothing for you... if you're not ready.
Getting your home in order is kinda like embarking on a weight loss journey. We all know that living a healthy lifestyle requires shedding poor food choices and adding movement.
Think of organizing in terms of getting in to shape- you have to change your MINDSET first, then let go of the unhealthy thoughts that no longer serve you, and you have to exercise- as in be ready to get to work. Remember, your home organization consultant will help you every step of the way!
There isn't a magic pill. To be organized on the outside, you first need to look inside and develop healthy thoughts.
No home is perfectly organized 100 percent of the time. Ever. Don't let social media tell you otherwise.
Home Organization is a work in progress and always in motion. If you organized a room and left it the same way forever, your home would become stagnant. We, just like our possessions, are made of matter- moving particles and molecules and all of that science stuff. We were meant to be in motion, and as our lives change and develop, so our stuff needs to change as well.
The routine or organized cupboard that is efficient one year may need to change the next year, as your life transforms and moves on.
We all have obstacles~ the thought patterns that hold us back. But there isn't anything that can't be overcome in some way. As one of my favorite motivators, Marie Forleo, says- "Everything is Figuroutable". (Also the title to her best selling book- a great read that may change your life.)
Time for tough love~ Are you willing to change your mindset and think differently? Is it time for you to let go of yesterday?
If it's not, if you're just getting by instead of thriving, it's time to replace those thoughts that no longer serve you with ones that will make lasting changes in your life.
Professional organizing requires change. There is no other way. Ask yourself, is your clutter, lack or home management, or disorganized state working for you and your family? If it were, how did you get to this page?
Remember the insanity definition... doing the same things over again and expecting different results...
You must be willing to alter routines, face the tasks that need to be completed, and do things differently.
• LET GO.
Letting go of what no longer serves you is cleansing to the soul. It frees you, and this is a good thing! When you release items, you allow room for what you truly desire to come into your life.
Are you willing to let go of the past?
Are you willing to actually do what is required?
Step by step, one little bite at a time- you CAN make a difference! You have to start somewhere.
It DOES take time, and it's a process for sure- and a lifelong process at that! Believe me- with 4 kiddos, even my kitchen cabinets STILL are not how I want them to be organized.
It's been said, "if it's important enough, you'll make the time... if not, you'll make excuses." (I know that's a quote from someone but cannot remember who- if it's your's, please message me so I can credit you!)
If you can answer yes to these questions- awesome! It's time to move ahead and conatact your local home organization consultant!
If your answers are no, it's OK! There IS still hope for you, I promise! Let's uncover why you may not quite be ready yet and start along your journey to having the home routine and home organization you desire!
