I know, I know it’s been a while (over 2 years). I could make excuse after excuse but well let’s just say that writing hasn’t been a priority. I have the type of personality that I have to have a full “project plan” before I do something. This is something that has been holding me back for years. I would really like to have a “just jump in” attitude. So, here I am writing for the first time in two years.
While the name of the blog is “Office Supplies Never Broke My Heart”, which is true, however they have made me a hoarder. I am pretty sure that I have highlighters and Sharpie markers from when I was in high school. I have always thought, “I need to keep that pen because someday I will want to use it”. Yeah these are the pens that you pick up free at the bank! Needless to say, I have a problem.
I have started my therapy by throwing out said highlighters and Pens and only keeping the nice pens. Now I know I still have a problem because I have 16 different colored pens, but hey at least they are all one kind of pen. Baby Steps…
The next thing to tackle are notebooks. Anybody that knows me personally knows that I have had a love affair with paper my entire life. My dad would take me to the outdoor flee market by my house and my favorite booth was the old school bus that all they sold was paper. I remember it vividly. Journal type notebooks are my kryptonite. I think to myself, “I need something to write all of my plans of what I am going to do.” “I need a notebook for my weight-loss plan, one for the book I am going to write, and one for the freelance business.”
Here is the problem, I get overwhelmed by my organization and then I say “screw it all” and watch You-Tube videos.
What I am hoping I am getting out of actually writing this down is that I will figure out a way to fix it and get back to my organized, amazing self. I do pretty well at work, at least I have everybody fooled but then I get home and it’s all down hill.
One step at a time, here’s to keeping it simple,
Thanks for stopping by,
More to come!!
