When I need to
think stew about something or just want a little space, you can usually find me cleaning or organizing something. I think this is how I became a Professional Organizer in the first place.
This weekend I was under a little stress and felt the need to get some things in order. I worked on the budget, which helped me focus a bit more. Then worked on the gardens which just makes me want to cook more. (Tons of lettuce, spinach and mesclun mix is up!) Then I tackled the garage. I have been putting off the garage because it is grimy work. At the end I had a huge pile of recycling to go out and a good pile of garbage too. Whew! Not to mention that I had breathed through some thoughts and feelings.
On top of it all, I spotted some trees that were cut down across the street for the new electrical lines going underground. Well. I had a thought of upcycling one or two for my backyard. So over went with the vehicle and picked out a couple. One proudly sits at the front door for a seat and the other is my new end table in the backyard for my plants and decor. (I'll take a photo today now that the rain has stopped for a minute)
I slept well last night.
Next time you need time to think a few things through, dig into a pile of stuff you are avoiding. You are productive and can figure out how "important" those stressors really are.
