Sounds a bit dramatic but today is the first actual day that I don’t have to go to work. After more than thirty seven years working in mental health, I knew it was time to make a change. I have to admit, I am feeling a little lost but I am sure that is to be expected and I know it will be short lived. Change is good!
There are so many things on my to do list that I easily can feel all over the map not knowing what to do or where to start. My worry is that I might just want to hang out at home, nestle in, hibernate, clean the house, declutter, change things around, read books, cook nice food, do crafts, take naps, watch Netflix. Well, I am sure I will still be able to do all of those things and more. I really was doing mostly all of those things before and still working full time.
But now, I have the gift of TIME. Something I have craved for so long. And I do realize that I will need a plan or I will just be only engaging in those activities above. My focus needs to be on me and I really need to start to listen to my intuition about what is next. I feel that I have been so much in my own head with my work, so busy, seeing one client after another who were often in crisis that it was difficult to come home and change gears. The work can be emotionally exhausting and its hard to focus on anything else at the end of the day.
My first plan is to try to take things slowly, relax somewhat, get more physical with yoga and walking, have a meditation practice, take time to listen and trust my own intuition and figure out what is next for me. I do know that my work is not done yet.
You will be happy to hear that I will be continuing with the Clearing Clutter Support Group that I initiated and is run through the Canadian Mental Health Association. I am so excited about this as it is my passion and I want to continue in this work helping others to have more space and clarity in their lives.
About This Blog
I am unsure about continuing. Maybe, its time for a new start. I know that quite a number of people read it and I do have some followers, however, I get so few comments (thank you and a big shout out to the Professionals Organizers who always comment Woohoo!) I am just not sure what kind of an impact I am making and I really want to be using my time wisely. If you follow me please let me know what you think and/or what would be helpful to you in your decluttering journey. You can contact me privately if you wish at firstname.lastname@example.org
So yes, I do feel that this is a new chapter for me and I am so excited for today and what is to come.
Thank you as always for following along. Happy Decluttering!
