I struggle to maintain order in my life and in my home. Order is not something that comes naturally to me. Maintaining focus is hard, and cleaning is much harder.
Recently, I was evaluated at an ADHD clinic.
One of the things that was suggested to me was to work with a personal organizer. I knew just who to call, my lovely friend Dara who owns and operates her own personal organization company. It also helps that she’s known me since 1st grade.
Here she is in a tiny picture!
She’s not that tiny in real life.
She’s also a pisces, and I love her.
Anyway, I’ve been working out of my bedroom. This has been the worst home office situation I could possibly imagine.
I wanted to create a space where I could work comfortably. I had a room in mind, but there was a major problem, it looked like this:
Dara believed that this space could be an office.
She believed that I could transform this space into an office.
She had faith in me.
I was scared.
She never gave up.
We worked for three hours.
I stayed with it.
I maintained my focus.
I followed my dream.
I can do this, I told myself.
Just do it.
Make it happen.
And it happened…this space…this messy scary space…. became this:
Thank you Dara, for believing in me.
Thank you for keeping me on task.
You are amazing.
My space is wonderful.
I am so grateful and at peace.
