Yesterday my heart was heavy with some things and to distract myself from the burden of thinking about it too much, I dealt with it the junkie way. The organizing junkie way that is :) That’s right, I distracted myself with some wonderfully intoxicating organizing juices. I found myself with a morning of no commitments so I immediately started flitting about my house looking for my next “hit”.
I found it in my youngest son’s room.
Recently he has gone through a growth spurt and I’ve been noticing that his pants have been a little on the short side. So I delved into his closet where I keep some totes filled with the blessings of hand me down clothing. It was so relaxing to zone out and think about nothing else except my task at hand. I got completely into it, organizing old clothes into piles such as toss, consign, donate and organizing “new” clothes into his drawers. I was even able to lose one tote all together by hanging up all the next to fit size of clothing into his closet.
It was the perfect project for a little distraction and although this particular task didn’t take more than maybe an hour I immediately felt better when it was done….space wise and emotionally.
Got too much on your mind?
Zone out for a little while by taking your own “hit” of pure organizing bliss. You’ll be glad you did and you might even find yourself looking for it again and again :)
