The Week I Get My Life Together
I used to work at this non profit doing hybrid social work/early intervention for young children and their families. I absolutely loved it. Great organization, amazing co-workers, and that warm and fuzzy feeling you get from
your pockets being empty contributing to your community. Sometimes I would come in from a visit with a family, look at my poorly organized desk and realize I had a lot of work in front of me. I would say, “I NEED TO GET MY LIFE IN ORDER!” And my co-workers would chuckle…”Oh, that Liz! Always saying silly stuff!” I just hate the feeling of loose ends. I love when things are neat and orderly and I feel like I’m in control.
It’s hard to get your life in order, so to speak. I mean, here I am. Just me. No kids, no husband, no house…and I can barely take care of myself. I let myself eat Cheetos and vodka for dinner last night – on a motel coffee table no less.
From fall of 2012 til about march of this year, my life was one long loose end. Things are finally settling down in my life and I feel like now that the dust has settled I need to get back to business of becoming a real adult. Go to the dentist. Buy Kale. That sort of thing.
So, this week
I am getting my life in order.
Ideas for small changes that make big differences are greatly appreciated.
