Is having your shit together a big deal to you?

Haha, well, having your "shit together" probably is if you hired a professional organizer or contemplated getting one. Do you just want to feel organized and on top of things? Yes! I want to be able to find matching socks in the morning! 🧦😄 However, when you've got kids, a job, medical issues, pain, turmoil, or whatever life has thrown your way, you know that it's more than difficult. However, having the framework or starting point can help make the wild ride of misplaced socks, forgotten appointments, and a constant battle against the snooze button, just a little more manageable.

Let me tell you a little secret... Nobody has their "shit together." Friends, family. Some are just better at mastering the art of looking like they do! 😎🙌 As a professional organizer, even I struggle. I have children that don't put things back where they belong, despite labels, so my home constantly involves a level of maintenance to reset everything. I've got my fancy planner, color-coded post-it notes, and a confident smile that says, "I totally know what I'm doing!" But deep down, there are days I forget things. 🤷‍♀️ It's a constant battle between my ambitious to-do lists and my love for Netflix marathons and sitting in the pool.

The number one thing that I find at every client home is a book about decluttering or organizing. Instead of judgement, all this says to me, is that everyone is trying and there aren't enough hours in the day. In my mind, trial is good enough. It reminds me that we are all human, faults and all, including me. Perfection is just a myth. We can't do everything, despite trying. So, I asked my virtual A1 to write me a few ideas for this 3rd paragraph. Out of 7 different versions here are some fun sentences it came up with for having my "shit together" -

  • It's like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded 😅

  • It's like trying to catch a greased-up pig at a county fair! 🐷😅

  • It's like trying to juggle flaming torches while riding a unicycle! It's a hilarious balancing act of responsibilities, deadlines, and trying not to burn the house down. This was my favorite because it reminded me of my friend Alan and every time I try and cook a fancy meal.

But you know what matters? Life is too short to stress about being perfectly organized. Take the small victories! As long as we're happy and doing our best, who cares if our "shit" is a little scattered sometimes, right? Let's embrace the beautiful messiness of life. Let's rock those messy buns and enjoy the ride, even if it involves a few dropped torches along the way! 🤹‍♀️🔥😂 Enjoy my friend Alan riding a unicycle and juggling the last time I saw him!
