I have a Chaotic Core. I admit it.3:46 PM
How can I become more organized? All my efforts seem to result in the same disorganized, overhwhelming chaos.
And yes, I was that kid who would tell my mom, "I know where everything is in this chaos!" (called my room).. I knew my book for class was under the pile of clothes in the corner and my red heels were behind the pile of magazines stuffed half-way under my bed & my favorite pair of jeans were usually wrapped in my comforter.
So, time has passed and yes: I have matured, grown, lived, loved, learned and purchased so many fancy plastic containers that snap here, close there, collapse this way, stackable ones, labeled ones, and STILL, STILL I remain disorganized.
Um, what is my problem? I try so hard and over and over, I swear!
I can spend the entire afternoon cleaning my creative work station and take a deep breath with satisfaction and sit to work and I guarantee in about 2 hours I am back to: "where is my hammer?" "I Just put my packing tape right here, why can't I find it?" and so fourth...
Am I hopeless?
I mean, I know I have a chaotic core... my essence is wild and flies freely in every direction... (often at the same time)... causing chaos but i credit that to the artist in me. The artist in me blooms wildly from my chaotic core. (dangit, I'm stamping that on a bracelet) but: I need some order and to make sense of it all..
>> I need to tame the beast of disorganization & chaos.<<
I want to so bad too, & for everything of mine just to STAY organized once I organize it... for me to stay organized... for me to stay organizing....
Dear Beloved Belongings of Mine,
Can you just stop being a jerk and getting messy, yea? Can you work with me instead of against me?
...but alas, I have yet to find the secret to those neat, orangized, seemingly perfect individuals who always know where their hammer and packing tape is because they never allow their work station to peak at chaos as I do.
Lately, the voice in my head is too sassy for her own good and has been taunting me with: Look woman, you need to learn those organized people's secret & get it together already!
And my inner voice is right, I do. I would save so much time if I was organized.... now, how to discover the counter-chaos potion.
Is there a secret?
I thought the secret to being organized was labeled plastic containers, but I have a bunch of those and the organization charm still hasn't been activated.
Will someone help a mama out with any info, tips, and secrets to their organized success?
from the bottom of my chaotic core,
I thank you.
Des, Mano y Metal.
