It’s Time to Accept Help
I recently returned from a very active outdoor vacation – hiking for a week in the Julian Alps in Slovenia. Before this trip, I did not even know where Slovenia was. I knew it was part of the Yugoslavia break-up, but I didn’t know its location. It is under Austria, for those who, like me, do not know.
I have hiked in the past, but I have never been more challenged both physically and mentally as I was on this trip. First of all, living in south Jersey means sea level and no hills (let alone mountains). I did the best I could to prepare, but I was still worried.
As it turned out, I was usually the 2nd from the last hiking up and always the last coming down. Our guides kept telling me this was not a race and yes, the rest of the group was waiting for me. The guides always kept motivated and stayed with me while I was huffing and puffing. I never thought I would be able to breathe normally again, and even though my legs were fine, my toes, especially going downhill, were screaming. But, I did it, and how proud did I feel!
Now, you are probably asking what does this have to do with organizing. As I was feeling very challenged, I thought of my clients who are very challenged by organizing. In my mind, a challenge is a challenge, no matter what. Our guides were supportive, inspiring, and kept me laughing. I realized that is exactly what I do with my clients.
Having the guides, in addition to the other 13 hikers in the group, helped me succeed. We all need help with some parts of our lives, and I am even more convinced now that whenever I need help, I am going to ask and accept it with open arms.
Are you struggling with de-cluttering and organizing? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Has the time come where you are ready to accept help? What are you going to do transform your physical and mental space to meet your needs? I totally embraced the help from our guides. Now may be your time to accept help from a professional organizer.
