Everyone needs goals. Whether it’s to get out of bed every morning, run 5 miles a day (not gonna happen unless I am getting chased by a wild animal), find a new job or get organized, we all need goals. This year my plan is to get everything in some kind of order. I am at my best when my spaces are organized and everything has a place. When everything is messy and unorganized I tend to have anxiety attacks and fits of rage. Just ask my family.
I live with boys. Big Daddy, Thing 1 & 2, and even the dog. All males. They tend to be messy and are not bothered by clutter. Happy as freaking clams. So when I nicely suggest they pick up after themselves the whining and tantrums being. Thing 2 drops to the floor in a fetal position, Thing 1 starts to defend his piles and the dog just moves to another room. And then I flip the freak out. I threaten to throw everything away. Just haul it off to the dump. But I know I don’t have the energy to actually do it.
So I have a plan. I am reclaiming my home! Everyone has been put on notice. My office is now MINE. I am working on revamping it to fit MY needs. The boys have a ‘man cave’ upstairs so all their stuff has been moved upstairs. No more dropping off everything in the office when they walk in the door. Big Daddy has one tiny little corner for his stuff. We are working towards making that look better. I will post pictures when I am done. Before and After. Here is just a snippet of my desk.
So while I am searching Pinterest like a crazy woman, I found something new. It’s called ‘Bullet Journaling’. It was created by Ryder Carroll, who is an art director, web designer and a lot more. He’s kind of a big deal. It’s kind of a kick-ass to-do list for EVERYTHING! I watched the video on his website at least 100 times and I am so addicted. I am working on my on bullet journal now. More to follow…
Now back to organizing, you can see what inspires me from my Pinterest board here: www.pinterest.com/missyfarrow/organize-organize-organize
Can’t wait to have a completely organized home and life. Even if it kills me. Or kills my family.
