I am learning that our emotions are the key to everything we do with respect to clutter and everything else in our lives.
- You may feel sad and so you leave the kitchen a mess because it’s too much effort to clean it up.
- Or you feel guilty and so you hang on to things that belonged to a relative even though you’d rather let them go.
- Or you are grieving and so you keep a loved one’s room exactly the way it was when he passed away.
Emotions drive every single one of our actions (and inactions).
Understanding our emotions is critical if we want to live our best life. But it’s not an easy thing to do and most of us have had little to no education on how to actually understand and manage our emotions. So that’s going to change now.
We are going to start a new series here on Early Bird Mom.
Every week I’m going to publish a worksheet with some questions to challenge you and help you dive into your own emotions and actions.
And it will all relate back to clutter and organization. But also, it will be so much more!
Get the full scoop plus a big dose of excitement from here in this video LOL.
I recommend you start a binder where you can keep all of these worksheets along with any of the other printables you download or purchase from the Early Bird Mom shop.
Who are you becoming? Who do you want to become?
Because the New Year is such a time of reflection and also of new beginnings, today’s worksheet is about who you are becoming.
If you want to make a change in your life (declutter your home, become more organized, lose weight, etc.), you must evolve into a new version of yourself.
You must start becoming this “new” person BEFORE you achieve the change you are seeking.
If you can figure out “who” you need to be in order to make this change, you’ll be able to do the things you need to do so that you can accomplish your goal.
So who are you becoming?
A person who’s more loving?
A person who’s more generous?
More of a leader?
Once you’ve identified WHO you are becoming, think about how these qualities will manifest themselves in the actions you take and the goals you set.
For instance, if you want to practice love toward yourself and your family, you can consider cleaning up the kitchen each night an expression of love. If you want to guide your children toward independence, you can include a focus on lovingly teaching them chores or other life skills. If you want to live in abundance, you can focus on letting things go without fear.
Download this week’s worksheet below and spend some time answering the 2 questions you’ll find there.
