Since I’ve been organizing and giving “stuff” away, I thought that I’d let you in on a secret. Did you know that there is a joy to be found from having your house organized? I know, it sounds too good to be true, right? However, it is in fact, true. Since part of my new plan for life includes such things as: weekly meal planning, including shopping lists; filing paperwork as I open the mail (whoever even heard of that?); keeping my closets in the same organized way as I made them; and most of all, avoiding putting “stuff” on my dining room table, life is actually more pleasant. I don’t feel overwhelmed all the time. Imagine that??
So, while I have some way to go, my house is on its way to becoming a pleasant place. The best thing is, it’s not as stress-producing as it used to be. I don’t feel as “out-of-control” as I did before, and I’m a happier person. Apparently, disarray does me no good. And, believe it or not, I am still a creative person. As a matter of fact, I feel even more creative, since it takes less time to clean when you don’t have to move all the piles of “stuff” before you clean. I can see that being organized is indeed a good thing!
