CHAOS - I've got a secret
Saturday, January 05, 2013
It hasn't really started yet. I've watched a few inspirational videos and made a plan for my day. I just started FlyLady.net to help me attain my New Year's resolution. She has really inspired me in ways I cannot explain. I think she's gotten to the heart of what eats at me and makes me beat myself up. But that is for another day.
I've spun the wheel, I've huddled, given inspiration to a couple of people, posted an inspirational picture on FB, eaten a decent breakfast and logged my food. Pretty good for 8:30 on a Saturday.
In furtherence of decluttering my home and life, after watching FlyLady this morning, I am going to tackle a mountain with baby steps. My sink is shiny, I'm about to start the morning routine so that I have the mindset to do it.
I have a secret. I suffer from CHAOS. That is Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome. I have managed to hide it for as long as I can remember using Stash and Dash. Because I have this perfectionist attitude that nothing I do will ever be good enough, I don't start at all. This leaves my brain in chaos!
In a bit I am going to take a Before Picture of my Master Bedroom Closet and send it to my cleaning buddy who I've chosen to be accountable to. She will probably gasp, shriek, and sit in amazement wondering how in the world do I get ready in the morning. I hope she's had her coffee. I also hope she deletes the picture and doesn't forward it to The Enquirer, even though it would probably make her some quick cash.
It didn't get that way in one day. It got that way because I chose to keep instead of give away, throw away or put away. I am going to do this in 15 minute increments so that I'm focused and I'm allowing myself breaks. I have no end date goal.
I'm going to print this blog, hang it in that closet as a reminder of how it got this way and what it will be when I am done.
Shutting my computer off, lacing up the shoes and conquering CHAOS!
