I grew up in a house where I hardly remember the mess around me. My mother continued to organize things and was very careful about not having what we didn’t need. She told me that there was a way to live a really tidy life.
It was the basis of thinking about the physical space where I live. And the organized life style is a place where I prosper. I believe that most people do so, but for many reasons, many people never experience a clean and organized environment.
And let’s be clear for a while. I’m as far as I love this way of life, and I’m far from being there at this point in my life. However, I am working on it again and lives in harmony with my physical environment.
What you can live in a cluttered life
There are many factors when living a cluttered life. For me personally, thinking about organizing things by living with the other five people who have not taken the same amount of care will make that over -challenge. It is frustrating, overwhelming, and sometimes gives the feeling that you don’t want to be in this space.
When Fraser and I moved together more than six years ago, we combined two houses into one. There were many duplicate things. And because there are newborns who take care of them, organizing everything was very challenging for me. Eventually, I decided to bring some cluttered a new house. I used time to run out of steam! But I did it in the best way I could do at that time. I love organizing, so I enjoyed this process even if it was still in progress! That’s me.
Challenge to live with other people
It is very challenging to create a beautiful living space, being scattered, organized, and organized when living in a variety of personalities. I’m much more happy when my space is clean and tidy, but this doesn’t seem to be the case for everyone else. At least, they don’t want to spend time and effort to do the job they need to do it.
I think the level of resistance to the clutter is different. And for Fraser and his children, their past physical environment makes our current environment look much better. This is where we have a difference. I understand that this is what I need to accept. I also recognize that what I can do can create an environment without a clutter, which is a model for the rest of the family. It is important that my habits will eventually rub them down. You need to be patient.
And you can see that my habit has begun to make their mark. For example, Fraser is seeing how it is good to have a tidy garage. It will give him the space he needs to do. But I know he feels overwhelmed by the mountains. But little by little, he has reached there.
My goal is to create and execute OW’s tidy plan because I know that others can’t control what they do. Hopefully, I hope that this alone will seduce others to do the same thing in their own space.
For the time being, I take one mountain in one room at a time, one at a time. Eventually, I will arrive there and everyone will be happy for it.
Where do you start from?
It may seem overwhelming to look at your whole house and think, “I have to clean and organize it all.” It’s enough to stop you before you start. Please do not despair. Your way to live a tidy life will come to one baby at a time.
In the next few days, weeks, and months, I will take you on a tidy trip. Participate in this trip and see where you can take your baby’s step in your home.
I summarize the action plan for myself, share all of it with you, and share it with my progress. I share hints and tricks with you on the way, and we can improve our lives simply by improving our living space together. You will be surprised at the impact of this in all other fields in your life.
