Happy New Year!
I am looking forward to a great year and I am so excited about our Mindful Mission 2012 Challenge. I’ve spent some time brainstorming my first goal for 2012. I love organization. However, there are many days you wouldn’t know that about me due to the stacks of clothes, shoes, papers, and such spread around my house. Even though I let the clutter happen, it drives me crazy. Unfortunately, since moving into our house last year I have not created a home base for everything to return to after it is used. This is because I have way too much stuff. This translates into messy spaces in my home. Since everything doesn’t have a home, during the work week I get tired and lazy and let stuff pile up until it becomes a super annoying mess. The worst spot is the backseat and trunk of my car.
The messy clutter weighs on my mind. I don’t like it. I forget about stuff. I lose stuff. It takes me longer to complete tasks. It has to stop. Thus, my first goal for 2012 is to create more organization in my home life. I will be elaborating and writing my SMART goal as we work through the Mindful Makeover for Moms Workbook. For right now, here is my list of behaviors I want to change:
(1) Letting stuff pile up in my car
(2) Letting mail stack up unopened
(3)Letting clean clothes stack up in my bedroom
(4)Not dealing with a crazy, second closet that has lots of random stuff in it.
I am excited to be setting a goal that addresses a few of the things that mentally bring me down. I am even more excited to make some changes that I feel will fuel my mindset and energy for future goals in 2012!
