YIPPIE KI-YAY MOTHERFUCKER!!
Ok, so I cleaned and organized the bedroom. But I feel like I just conquered some sort of scaly, fire-breathing monster! (The before picture doesn’t really encompass the ocean-like state of the floor, although maybe the lack of things in the closet does. Also, the after is still waiting on two baskets that I ordered.)
Maybe there are people in the world who can truly focus all of their energy in one area and really excel at it. That doesn’t work for me. When I’m struggling with my fitness, my diet or my general attitude, I’ve found that oftentimes the problem is something completely unrelated! I spent the last week totally unmotivated, even though I was back from traveling and had no distractions. Finally remembering to look at my life as a whole, I saw the other area I was struggling in was organization. We moved this summer, and I’m still searching through boxes in the garage once or twice a week.
Having an organized bedroom will make it faster and easier to put clean clothes away. I will spend less time searching for what I need. I will feel more relaxed going to sleep at night, and more welcome when dragging myself out of bed in the morning (it’s really no fun to have to think about where is safe to step when you don’t want to get up anyway). This leaves me more time to study, more time to workout, and a better sense of control to translate into my eating.
