If you’re finding yourself “doing it all” alone, you don’t have to – Reach out for help.
It’s so easy to get in the mindset of checking items off that never ending To-Do list.
Breaking things down into smaller tasks will make it easier to accept and accomplish what needs to get done.
Please release that unrealistic expectation you have of yourself. You are not perfect, you never will be and honestly who the hell wants to be?
There is no such thing as a perfectly balanced life because your life is unique. Having Balance in life may mean something totally different for you then it does to someone else. Rather than a perfectly balanced life, begin to strive for a life that leaves you happy and healthy at the end of the day.
Stop trying to “do it all”. Spend your valuable time on things that matter the most to you!
If that means you sleep in every morning and workout later. Nothing wrong with that!
If that means you start work at 11:00 am. Awesome!
If that means you don’t clean and organize your house and you hire somebody else to do it. Even better!
Ask for help. Create a life that supports your strengths and encourages you to ask for help in the areas that you struggle.
I promise you that if you begin to make decisions based on what makes you happy, your life will transform dramatically. Your time is so precious, don’t waste it doing things that bring you down and no joy.

I Help Make Decisions ~
I have clients ask me “do you ever see the mess, dirt and trash when you go into people’s cluttered homes?” I always reply with “Nope, I just see a whole lot of decisions not made.” The reasons people continue to have a relationship with their clutter is many. In the last 25 years of organizing homes and offices, I found that many times people just don’t know what to do with their stuff. I have seen some great “Start & Stop” processes in my coaching, you know where someone did take the time to organize all the mail sitting in a mound on the far end of the kitchen counter. But, then it becomes overwhelming and doing nothing seems more reasonable then deciding on the right place to put something. You just need to make a decision . . . right or wrong it doesn’t matter.
You know you have this person in your circle of family & friends – don’t lie!
The ones that has that cookie tin in their hands, the tin with the really cute picture of a kitten and snowman looking adorable. They are thinking maybe someone in the family can use it? Maybe they will use it next Christmas. They walk it around the house trying to find that perfect home for it, taking it and fitting it in the bookcase – damn it’s just a little too wide. Then, they try to put it on a table, it doesn’t look right with the Spring decor. Then they see a spot, they pick up speed as they dash across the room to the same exact freakin’ spot they took it from. So, now we know where the new home is – It’s called “Indecision Island” where all the misfits of the clutter end up, it’s really called the kitchen table!
Make decisions in small, daily steps to clean and organize a space. Pick a small space like the kitchen table or one kitchen counter, keep consistent with daily small organizing tasks. One tool I have used with my clients is once the space is organized, clean it – make it sparkle. That small task will give you a sense of accomplishment and boost your mental health.
Make a Decision Today, Don’t be the person carrying the cookie tin around the house!
