Getting organized is one of the top ten most common New Year’s Resolutions that people make. Therefore, it must also be one of the most commonly broken resolutions. According to Psychology Today, only about 10 percent of people who make a New Year’s Resolution have stuck to them one year later.
So what’s the point? Well how about instead of a resolution, we call it a choice.
This intention and choice can easily apply to our homes and how we live in them. If we want a better quality of life, we have to consciously make the choice to get our home and life organized. And, we have to choose to keep them that way.
Here are a few choices that I have settled on and if you’re looking for a better 2013, I hope you’ll do the same!
I choose…to only have things in my home that I use and I love.
I choose…my family over my stuff.
I choose…to clear out the clutter on a regular basis.
I choose…to be mindful of the things that enter my home.
I choose…to put things back after I use them.
That’s it. If you choose those things and stick to them, you can live a more organized life…a better life!
