Note from Jessa: Today we have author and bellydancer Linda Mercury suggesting ways to GET ORGANIZED. If I tried dancing in my office right now, I’d break an ankle in all this clutter!
Often lost in the mist of “get organized” tips and tricks is one inescapable truth. Organizing is an act of profound self-love.
Organizing reduces anxiety and promotes a harmonious life. The smallest act of creating order from chaos will soften your shoulders and create a space for you to flourish. That’s why I recommend you always start organizing in your bedroom before anywhere else.
Your bedroom is where you dream, dress, love, cuddle. It is the most intimate place, where you are the most vulnerable. Forget the bit about having other people over. Invite yourself to the feast, first.
Bio: Linda Mercury left behind her varied careers as a librarian, art model, and professional clown to pursue writing. She’s interested in writing, romance, Middle Eastern History, reading, organizing, cooking, hand-made silk Turkish rugs, and the Nike of Samothrace.
Another Jessa note: I like the idea of starting with an “easy” room first. My bedroom is so small, it only gets somewhat cluttered. (Just don’t open the closet!) Today I’m posting with Jamie Brazil on her resolution of taming her closet. Oh man, I hope I can offer something coherent.
