Hi everyone, it’s been so long since I’ve written anything and listening to my gut instinct, it has really been drawing me to do so for quite a while. It’s amazing how inside of us we just KNOW what we should be doing for ourselves but we let life get in the way or get too busy. There’s always something else to do isn’t there. Something we deem more important that the one thing our gut is asking us to do.
Even this simple act of writing. Before I opened this word document I was trying to figure out what to write. But turns out I literally just had to start writing and the words would appear. That truly means it’s deep deep down within me that I knew what to do. And when I did it it just flowed.
2023 has been interesting so far to say the least. There’s a lot of change. But ultimately my search for stability is what keeps coming up for me. A friend of my mother’s told me the other day that I already have stability. It’s just inside of me. It’s not in my job, or my business. My partner can’t give it to me, or a bank account. I have to work on finding it within myself. I remember when my mother died I was told I’d now have to learn how to mother myself. I’m still learning.
I’ve just finished a large project I was on for the last few months. So doing home organising services were scaled back a bit as I did this work. Now that it’s done, I’m getting back into Organised Chaos. If you’ve been in touch with us and were told about the pause in services, why not schedule a free Consultation call with me now and we’ll get you organised before the Summer! I have to say I’ve really missed it. Before the project I was searching for routine. Turns out I already had it. I was probably just working too much. Putting too much pressure on myself. Not doing enough of non-work things – hobbies! So now that I’m back I’m going to be doing things a little differently. For example, I’ll be restricting locations I take on for clients and there will be limited day availability. I need to figure out what works best and doesn’t have me working to the bone.
Another way that I’m listening to my gut is by singing more. I have said for YEARS I want to do this so I’m at singing lessons and I’ve entered two competitions. Both are coming up this month. I am LOVING singing so much. Which yet again just goes to show that YOU know what YOU need to do. You just have to listen.
Of course, I love a good organising session and so I’ve been using this week to get stuck into that. I’ve cleaned the apartment, the car, I’m decluttering my google drives (I have three of them), clearing out old computer files and folders etc. An “I need to start again” mentality has me blitzing stuff I’ve been meaning to do for ages. Again, listening to my gut instinct to take time out to organise myself instead of rushing into work and fighting fires. Do you feel like that? Thinking you need to get organised but don’t have the time to do so? Sometimes we need to take a step back in order to step forward. My team and I can chat to you about how to do that in a way that fits in with your busy schedule. Book a call with me to see how!
Would you believe that it has taken me only about 10 minutes to write this article. It’s like my body was screaming at me to do it and it poured out of me. So much so, I’ve now let the cup of tea go cold. Off to get another!
What ONE thing do you want to do this year? I’d love you to let me know in the comments below!
Yours in organising,
