On the Wednesday podcast, I get to talk with members of the Organize 365® community as they share their 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!
I have spoken about life events and how they derail us from time to time. Rosa E. came to the paper workshop and was energized to get her home organized. Little did she know that shortly thereafter her mother would be moving in with her permanently. A life event was about to derail her.
Now that her mother has moved in, her family is finding a new normal. I offered some ways she could spend some special and intentional time with her mother. I speculate that this model of multigenerational homes may become popular due to the economy and all the demands on two parents in the workforce. I also shared how this works in my house with Abby and Grayson living there. Each family’s space is considered mini condos or apartments. And I teach this starting in the Organize 365® Kids Program. It’s easier to divide common spaces up and identify personal spaces. Everyone needs a “safe space” to decompress and do what they want to do without answering to anyone.
I also pointed out that we all like the Sunday Basket® because it speaks to us, we’re all just 12 year olds at heart. And now she’s implementing a Sunday Basket® for her mother too. To top it all off, Rosa is also starting a new career. She’s home organizing and The Paper Solution® Certified. She has been using the Friday Workbox® as her partner in success as she’s starting her business. She attributes the Friday Workbox® to helping her schedule her week, think ahead to marketing and networking, and grow her organizational business in Arizona.
