Gonna spend some time today getting my disaster of a home office organized & devising some systems to keep it that way.
I run my maternity shirt business out of my home office. Last week, I told my husband that I want to move the business out of our house & into a larger space because I just feel so disorganized & cramped in there.
While he is supportive of whatever I choose to do, he suggested that what I might need first is a mindset shift.
He was right.
I know I will eventually need a larger space, but now is not that time. Why
Because I do not currently have the systems and habits in place to keep my current space tidy and efficient, and moving into a larger space will not change that. Sure, a larger space may relieve the chaos for a while, but eventually, I will just end up having a larger space that is disorganized.
I need to focus on my systems and habits.
So often, we try to change external things and think that will improve our circumstances and how we feel.
We go from job to job & think this next one will make us feel fulfilled and happy.
We get a boob job & think we’re going to feel more confident.
But changing our outer effects does not guarantee lasting success & happiness. We may be on a high for a while, but unless we’ve had an internal shift, those good feelings will be temporary & we’ll go back to our old thoughts & feelings & actions & results.
An internal shift is always required – a realization that we are enough no matter what, new belief in our ability, a willingness to be vulnerable, a different mindset, better habits.
Like, if I come into a bunch of money, that will provide some relief for a while, but if I haven’t improved the financial knowledge & habits that got me into my debt position in the first place, I’ll end up in trouble again.
This is why lottery winners often go back to being broke. It’s why Biggest Loser contestants usually gain all the weight back. It’s why a baby or new house doesn’t fix a strained relationship.
Change is an inside job.
Tijd om iets meer te delen over wat er achter dit account allemaal gebeurt! Vandaag deel ik mijn fijne werkplek. Dit is waar ik altijd journal en aan mijn stickers werk. Ik ben er zo blij mee! Alles wat je maar nodig hebt is binnen handbereik en ik heb lekker de ruimte. Het heeft best even geduurd voor het er zo uit zag, maar ik ben er nu zó ontzettend blij mee! Binnenkort meer over mij en dit account ☺️😘
