“Time to get organized!” I say, cracking my knuckles. The statement feels good to say, but as the reality of what that will entail sets in? Well, it’s like standing on the edge of a cliff, overlooking a valley filled with clutter that needs to be moved before I can start the trek up the mountain in the distance.
There are so many things I think I have to do, organize my desktop, organize my workspace, organize my fonts, organize organize organize, how can I have a thriving freelance buisness with all this set up I have to do first, there’s just so much! Don’t even get me started on the physical world where we’re drowning in a sea of kids toys and general clutter. How did I get here?
The thing is? If I’m honest, I’ve always been here. Life is a steady flow of disorganization, when something gets settled something else will swim in to fill the void. There never is and never will be enough time. So the best thing I can do, is to try to MAKE time for things, carve out pockets to deal with stuff that piles up, and if I stick to it, maybe I’ll dig my way through that valley of stuff and start trudging up that hill. If there’s one thing I am good at it’s trudging. Someday I’d like to graduate to a light-hearted step, but hey, I’ll take what I can get for now.
So time to buckle down.
