Self & Space
Self & Space
You have always done everything yourself. Moving, packing, unpacking, decorating, organizing your kitchen, the kids rooms, the garage, were all tasks that you pushed yourself to accomplish, never even thinking of asking for help. We are so distant from relatives today, and don't want to inconvenience friends, so we end up doing so much on our own. I myself was totally guilty of this push, push, push behavior. I prided myself on being the dynamo woman who could do it all. Looking back if I had known I could call on someone to help me get organized and situated I would have been dialing away.
Prior to becoming a Professional Organizer I really had not been aware of the "profession". I saw a few shows about hoarding, and heard the term "Professional Organizer", but I really never thought of it in terms of a personal service that you could call upon, and or I thought it linked only to the hoarding situations. It wasn't until I retired as a Social Worker/Therapist and was soul searching my way to a new career, feeling completely turned upside down, and disorganized that I started searching out books on how to get organized. I bought book after book, signed up for newsletters from Professional Organizers, and started plowing through the material. One day a message from a Professional Organizer out of Canada popped up on my email. All of a sudden it hit me, that I'm supposed to be a Professional Organizer.
For heaven's sake I had been a very organized Clinician, keeping two offices alive for ten years, billing insurance companies, keeping track of clients and their lives, and helping others get themselves organized. It was a perfect fit for me, and it felt like doing old fashioned "Social Work".
The old fashioned Social Worker, before licensing and all the rules and ethical
boundaries, was a man or woman, who visited families in search of care, usually
with a fruit basket. They were called "friendly visitors". They were hired by
the family to come in and help other men and women get back on their feet. The
"friendly visitor" would go into the home and help in any way possible to put
things back in order. They would lift the person out of bed, help them get
dinner ready or wash some clothes just to start the ball rolling again. It was
the kindness, caring and nurturing ways of these visitors that brought life back
into the family member who had been down and out.
Professional Organizers are the friendly visitors of today. We are there so you don’t have to push yourself to pack, unpack, move, clean out your garage, organize your kitchen, closets, decorate, do errands and shop if that is just not in the cards for you. We are there to talk to, coach you and fix up your house, simple. So stop pushing and call a local professional organizer and GET ORGANIZED NOW!
