December 17 – Lesson Learned
What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
If I’m not organized I can’t get anything done – and I’m definitely not organized. This isn’t something I am just learning this year either but now that there are two little ones to look after it is glaringly apparent that I need to get organized or I will have a lot of unfulfilled goals. There was a time in the past where I was a highly organized individual but I’ve really let that slip and with the number of changes we have gone through in the past three years: two babies, eczema buying a house, obesity one person at work all day & one at home (at work all day and night) I feel like if I don’t do something now to get back to my once-organized self I will have lost it forever. For me it is very true that a messy home = a messy mind. My memory isn’t that great to begin with but when I find myself becoming stressed about things I also start forgetting everything (bills, returning e-mails, commitments etc.) and then I start letting people down so I revert further into myself and it is a downward spiral.
