I Don't Wanna!

I don't want to.

Some things I just don't like doing. For me, it's laundry. And, washing dishes. But, they have to get done. So, I do them. Thankfully, I have a dishwasher that makes dish-washing much easier. And, at least I don't have to wash my clothes by hand. I don't like these tasks. But, I like having clean dishes to eat off and clean clothes to wear everyday. So, I do it.

I'd like to think that those who don't like organizing (gasp!) would still complete their projects because they understand that having an organized space is a necessity. It makes life easier.

Don't get me wrong - I don't expect people's homes to look like museums or magazine photos. I would hope that people would strive to make their homes function best for them. That might mean the mail stays on the dining room table. It might mean that toys stay in the family room at all times. If that's what works best for you, then that's how it should be.

Sometimes I work with someone who has all the skills to create a more organized space. They even have the time to tackle it.....if they wanted to. Therein lies the rub. Want to. We schedule some time together to power through the problem area and make life better. It's okay that they don't want to do these tasks alone. I'm absolutely here to make the process easier and quicker. The fact that they've reached out says that they care enough to get it done, but realize if left to their own devises, it won't happen. They do understand that life is better with a streamlined space. They just don't want to do it alone.

It's like exercising. It's much easier to get it done when someone else is telling me how many lunges to do and encouraging me along the way.

I promise if we work together I won't make you do any lunges.
