A tidy person in a messy persons body..

Do you ever feel like you need to get more organisation in your life but things feel so hectic you don’t know where to start? That’s how I’m feeling right now too.

But I’ve decided I need to make a start. I saw a Instagram post and a lady had started just by setting herself a room or 2 in the house per day along with a job you always plan to get round to but never quite get there. Keeping your paperwork in some kind of order for example.

I thought this was a good idea as most days of the week I find myself doing pretty much all of the same things and not getting round sorting through cupboards and boxes or reorganizing as much as I would like to. I find myself faffung and riding up after the kids when really they are all more than capable to do most of it themselves. 

So, I am going to make a start. My plan is to make my way though the kitchen and the cupboard downstairs before the end of the weekend, throwing, donating or selling anything that has been left unused for a period of time. May also get to do a bit of shopping for storage solutions. Also will get the kids to do their bit.a bit of responsibility may do them good.  I am hoping that once it’s done we will find the enthusiasm to keep on top of it all. Wish doesn’t always happen I must admit. 2 out of my 3 seem to suffer with this same problem. 

I love my home I really do. I just don’t have the discipline to keep it looking it’s best all day long. Not that it’s messy or dirty, more lived in. I feel that if I had more routine that I would become better at having the best of both… or is that unrealistic? I am unsure. 

I am totally open to suggestions, hints and tips… please help!

Trying to find the perfect balance.

Hi all. I am Kelly, 29, mommy to daughters Laila and Hallie and a son, Marley. I am a divorced, single parent, working part time. Trying to find the balance between being mommy, being sister, aunt, daughter, friend, working and trying to find some time for me too. Sound familiar?!
I am an over thinker and i find myself constantly analyzing my parenting and all of my other relationships.
I love being a mom, i believe it is what i was put on this earth to be and i am determind to be the best i can be.
I am also on abit of a journey to self discovery, i am sure all parents can relate to loosing part of themselves during this crazy parenting jouney, right? Kx
