2009 - A Year of Organizing


I think I started off well with the title.

*It might give people who know me a good laugh

*It might give me the small but well-placed kick I need to get organized.

.

I am a messy person.

I can add very without getting extreme,

I can even add extremely without exaggerating.

I am a very, extremely messy

(disorganized, ineffective,

messmaker) person.

.

And I'm ready for change.

.

I find myself in a new year,

with a clean slate and new chokes.

And several (meaning many) bad, old habits ready to die =)

I'm the one that classify them as "ready to die", it's not excactly something they've come up with them selves.

.

I also find myself in a new season of life, as a homemaking daughter in my parents house. Due to some financial difficulty I can't stay at home full time, I have to work, at least for a while. And I do some part-time studies. You see I'll need to be a little more organized. And also since half the point in my staying at home is to help out with the making of the home, there's even more reasons to get organized.

.

"See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

(Ephesians 5:15-16)

.

Give me one issue this book haven't got any comments on! =)

.

Of course, all you head-shaking people sitting by your computers thinking "where now did she get THIS from": I did get this idea from somewhere =) Somewhere as specific as Crystal Paine's Biblical Womanhood Blog,

this post to be accurate.

.

She writes:

For those of us who are home managers,

I believe it is vitally important we seek to

glorify the Lord by being

an efficient and organized

keeper of our home.

.

And I agree with her, of course.

I have even decided that I am a home manager,

and so I can take her words to heart.

.

I will make an effort to become organized through this year.

.

It's not a resolution, it's not even a promise.

It's a goal,

and that, my friends, is a far more valuable thing.

.

A goal is something to reach out after,

something to constantly measure up to and refocus on,

something to look at and redefine your course after.

.

I have hereby made my first goal for 2009, await many more.

You go girl! I know that you can accomplish this goal, and it IS important. It's important to be organized because I think that's one way women survive marriage and parenthood (:

I really enjoyed this post. You should keep us updated throughout the year on how this goal goes. I'll be praying for you!!
