On the Wednesday podcast, I talk with the Organize 365® community members as they share the challenges, progress, missteps, and triumphs along their organizing journey. You can see and hear transformation in action. I look forward to helping YOU learn the skill of organization, too! Meet Marie. This podcast has been a long time in the making. Marie started listening to the Organize 365® podcast back in 2015! She’s had all the versions of The Sunday Basket®. Marie lives with her husband of 23 years, 18-year-old daughter, and 15-year-old twin daughters. She also has a 20-year-old son who lives in an apartment nearby. Marie is experiencing the teenage years with her children and wonders why she still doesn’t feel as organized as she would like and where her time is going. This is an all too common theme. I’ve seen it time and time again. You think because your kids are now teenagers that, you should be organized. Your kids are much more independent than they were, so surely you should be getting your time back. Not so fast. This is a transitional period where your kids may act and speak as though they are independent – they have independent thoughts, make decisions, and it’s an enjoyable season of parenting. But you are still very much in active parenting. Whenever you’re in a transitional period, there’s a push and pull between the now and the soon-to-be. You are still very much in the current season, but you are starting to wonder what you will do next and want to get into the next season. You’re in the in-between. Embrace it. What’s one more experience you want to have during this season? What’s one more memory you want to make? If you’ve ever wanted to hear what happens during a virtual organizing session – this is it! This interview quickly became a session similar to what I used to have with my clients when I organized professionally. Want to try it for yourself? Ask yourself:
- What lights you up?
- What don’t you like to do?
- What are your family/household members into?
- How organized do you want to be?
- What needs to happen in the next 12-18 months or in your season?
- When you think about organizing your home, what does that look like?
- Have you implemented The Sunday Basket®, and how is that working for you?
