Monday Motivation: Who do you want to be?

Have you seen the recent kid's movie The Tale of Desperoux? I recently rented it and watched it with my children. I know that the theme of dreaming of a better life was over their tiny heads, but they did enjoy the beautiful animation.

The message of dreaming was not lost on me, however and I LOVED the quote when the narrator talks about a little girl who was not happy in her life. He said, "She could close her eyes and see the way her life would be someday. She could imagine the very moment that her life would change."

Have you ever had times in your life like that? Times when you tried to close your eyes to the mess, the stress, the noise and imagine how things could be different? I think so many times we imagine the way we want our lives to be... but we rarely think it is possible to actually achieve that dream. Not true!

I believe it is important to visualize and verbalize where you want your life to be and then put together a plan to make it happen. What is it that you want from your life?

More time? Less Mess? The ability to find what you want when you want it? Less Stress? Less Conflict?

Did you know that many of things that you want in life start by getting more organized. Define what the most important things are to you and what you want to achieve and then learn to organize your life to move in that direction.

I encourage you on this dreary, rainy Monday to spend a few moments curled up with a warm cup of coffee and imagine your life and circumstances changing. What is the first step to get there? The Chinese proverb The longest of journeys still begins with a single step... is so true. No matter how far out your goals or vision seem to be, they must start somewhere. What is one step that you can take towards a new you this week???

If that step is getting more organized, I encourage you to contact Simple*Organized*Sanity and let us help you achieve the life you are dreaming of with less clutter and less stress.
