I used to be an organizing freak. My schedule was done a week in advance, I never missed a deadline, and my college work was usually done a few days before it was due. And my room was always organized and clean, all neatly labeled and color coded... oh, how beautiful it was!
Since Julian came into my life, counting the months I was pregnant, my life turned 360 degrees... During the pregnancy I was alway too exhausted and sleepy that I started procrastinating and being disorganized. Now the kid, my job, my school, my hobbies, my home, everything keeps me too busy to get back on track. My life is hectic and chaotic. I've missed important deadlines, I can't find anything, and I even sent a payment TWICE to a credit card because I totally forgot I had send it already. And I won't even tell you how many times I've been late to work, or how much time I've wasted looking for my keys... it's pretty embarrassing!
I want to be the organized person I was before, I want to enjoy my day stress-free and have extra time to enjoy my family and myself... I want my life back!
My boys are already sleeping, and here I am, browsing the internet for the "perfect" organizing tips that will bring me back up to my feet. But I think it's all another excuse to procrastinate more, thinking that if I don't find what I'm looking for I can't never do it. Truth is, what I need is right here, I need to stop looking for excuses and just get things done! I think I'm too scared of facing all the work because I know it'll be overwhelming at first. But it's about time I stop whining and start acting. I decided to blog my "organizing diaries" as an attempt to have something to look back to and see what's working and what's not. I would usually use my personal diary or planner for this, but God knows I won't read it again or even get motivate it to keep writing.
Take a few moments and remind me I need to get organized, will you? It would help so much! and if you have a few tips feel free to share them! I'm desperate and will try anything right now!
My alarm is set up 45 min before than my usual wake up time, I plan to use that extra time to write everything I have to do down so I can see what has to be done when and all that jazz... Wish me luck, the snooze button is too tempting!
