1. Message of the Day - FIGHT TWIN TROUBLES

Two ideas will trouble us if we let them influence us.
These two ideas are:

"I'm in too big a hurry to take care of that now. I'll get back to it later."
And so we leave a something undone when we could have nipped the problem in the bud by taking care of it right away. Examples: filling ice trays, storing leftovers, putting up shoes, hanging up clothes or towels.

"It's not all that important."
Somehow on the spur of the moment it's too easy for us to abandon our dream for a nice house by forgetting what we really long for. We lose our focus temporarily and clutter results. Example: leaving cabinet doors open, not clearing the dining room or kitchen table completely.

Watch for those twin troublesome thoughts. They may fly through your brain but don't let them build a nest there. Instead neutralize them by saying the opposite to yourself.

Repeat, preferably aloud, "I will take time to do it now," and "It IS important. I will take care of it."

Develop good mental habits in these two areas and your life will change.

3. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we don't boss others. We focus on our own responsibilities.

In our family, we talk kindly to one another.

4. Quote of the Day

"If you can't easily access it, mess is pre-programmed."
MessiesTalk web group.

This quote emphasizes how important having the house
well organized is. Storage must make it easy for you to
get out and put up your belongings or else things will
begin to be left out.


5. Question of the Day

If your house were perfectly organized and lovely, what important thing would you do that you are not doing at this time? Is that goal worth working hard for?

Tell us by posting on Friends-of-The-Organizer-Lady.
6. From the Trenches -HEALTH ISSUES, Fatigue

I want to thank whomever it was that suggested I get my thyroid checked when I complained of being too tired to clean. I went in on Monday. The results of my thyroid test won't be done until tomorrow but one test was completed. I have mono! I had it 12 years ago so I thought I was immune, but apparently there's a new strain going around and I got it. So if any of you out there are extremely tired, get a mono test!


Editor note: Don't ignore the possibility of a physical problem of some kind if you are very tired. Get help for mono, thyroid, depression, borderline anemia, or whatever your doctor and you may discover is the root of this problem.
Fatigue is one of the chief, but often unspoken, issues of Messies.
