From a quick glance our home usually is picked up and organized.
I’ve had friends comment before that my house must “always” be clean.
Dream of it.
I hardly ever get to actually cleaning my house because I spend all of my time picking up the clutter and putting things back in their place.
My house might be tidy but I feel as though I am going completely crazy in the process, can anyone relate?
Months ago I sat in tears in the presence of two women whom I highly respect and cherish. Both of these women are now grandmothers and I knew that we shared similar personality types. I simply said to them, “HELP ME?!?” how do I be a mom all while craving order and keeping chaos at bay?
They mentioned a few things from their experience…
1) Less stuff
2) Leave the mess and get out of the house to go do things.
3) I do regret all of the time I spent cleaning and wish I would have stopped to enjoy the little moments more.
I soaked up what they said and have been thinking about it ever since. I’ll be unpacking their thoughts more in the coming months.
