Welcome to the Creatively Neat blog!
I’m a fan of blogs. Mostly about music, art, events; politics and psychology. And of course, organizing! Speaking of, I dedicate this new blog series to the world of organizing- and in it, will review books, articles and products, as well as inspirational quotes, tips and resources, along with my experiences. The possibilities are endless.
Organizing happens to be my area of expertise, especially when it comes to de-cluttering. I believe we’re all put here with special talents; ones we can share and inspire in others.
I’ve recently been focused on getting my own self organized at home by starting at the entrance way and working my way around the house. I know it’s what I need to do in order to better focus, have clarity and continue moving forward in life. Both as a professional and as an artist. I also want to be an example to those I’m inspiring. I’m being reminded of the various challenges and solutions that arise in the process of letting go and making space, for all that life has to offer.. Being busy can make inhabiting a clutter-free zone exceptionally challenging, but- it is possible. I call it: Homes and habits. We create homes for everything and then develop habits of intentionally placing them there, as soon as we walk in the door. More of that in a future blog.
When my physical surfaces and surroundings are clear; and when I understand what I own and can find it easily, I feel better able to relax and have more energy throughout the day. It’s about making and taking the time to organize and maintain it- because we believe we’re worth it. It’s about having a clean, beautiful place to call home so that we may feel comfortable, confident- with ourselves and others. Neat!
