DAY 1: “Put It All Back”
In my book, “Authentically Me”, I devote an entire chapter to tell my audience that I am “authentically flawed”. One of my many flaws, I must admit is disorganization. I do like things to be clean and neat. The kitchen has to be clean and so does the toilet but step into my office, closet or my car and that is a different story.
So I resolve today that all of this has to change. No more having over a thousand emails in my inbox. No more mail stacking up unopened. No more random things left hanging around in my office, not even my son’s action figures or swords. But where do I start?
Thanks to my twitter and facebook friends, I’ve been given many suggestions to becoming organized. But the one I will use today before I rest, is to be sure I put everything back where it belongs. Sounds simple and easy to do for all of my friends with A-type personalities. You think my ex-husband would have rubbed off on me after being married to him almost 14 years. You see he is the cleanest, neatest person I know. And still I did not get my act together recently after going through my mail one day finding a royalty check that had been buried on my desk for weeks.
So today I have reached the point of beyond frustration and change has to occur. Everything must go back to its place: the toys, the shoes, the books, the paper, the mailing labels etc. It must have a home and return there. I commit to putting it all back today and every day. The journey begins.
