Last Wednesday I was at a networking meeting and out of no where, I went into extreme spasm in my neck. It was so bad I could not drive home from the meeting and had to leave my car in the parking lot and get a ride home from a friend. I felt helpless.
Needless to say, the rest of the week I spent focusing on eliminating the spasms in my neck and taking time to recouperate. As a result, I had to take a week off of work and not do too much around the house. I could not drive so I could not run errands. I was not able to keep up with the housework and not able to keep my home "organized".
I have a hard time not being able to do what I normally do when things happen to cause me to lay low for a while. Not my style.
I am anxious to return to work this week and resume my normal activities.
I know that most people believe that since I am a professional organizer, my life is always "organized". However, this goes to show that we can all have times in our life when something comes along, unexpected, that throws us off course.
The important thing to remember is that you need not give up, but rather, work to get back to where you were before and resume those every day tasks.
Of course, being organized to begin with will help you to resume your normal schedule quicker. Just pick up where you left off and accept that sometimes, we cannot control what happens in life. Just learn to roll with the punches and be determined to get back to "normal" as soon as possible.
Remember, organizing is not a one-time-and-you're-done kind of job. It's an ongoing process so get back on that horse and get going!
If you have any questions or issues relating to any type of organizing, please contact me and I will be glad to help make your place A BETTER SPACE.
Have a great week!
