Welcome to my blog! If this is your first time visiting, I would love for you to check out my About Me page. It lets you know a little bit about what you can expect to find on my site. If you are returning to my site, thank you so much and welcome back!
Taking it back to the beginning
I’m going to take the time to reintroduce myself. My name is Brittany and I’m a 24 year old who is struggling to figure out what I want in life. I’m completely unorganized currently and struggling to keep myself on task about getting my life together. I always had a huge imagination growing up and I just knew that by the time I was 23 I would own my own house (completely organized and renovated to how I liked. My whole house was supposed to be bright pink on the outside and I was supposed to have a huge round bed in the master suite, as if!), have a huge fairy tale wedding (a total princess wedding), have three kids with a wonderful husband that I love so much.
These dreams I had when I was 6 years old. In my head I was going to be a billionaire, living in a castle, married to a very rich man. Now as I reflect on my life I’ve realized a few things:
A. I do not own my own house. Though I’ve looked at some houses; I’ve not made that step. (unfortunately no I did not look at castles either. Bummer.*insert sad face*)
B. I am not married nor do I have kids.
C. I am totally unorganized in my every day life.
Unorganized and getting sick of it
Let me just say this…..I’m lazy. There I said it. After I come home from work, I don’t want to go out and do anything. I’d rather stay at home in my pj’s watching an episode of Criminal Minds on Netflix (current situation as I type this). Don’t get me wrong, I work 40 hours a week or more, but I do not like to come home and clean my house every single day. My boyfriend and I use paper plates and red solo cups (the horror I know) so we don’t have to wash dishes and we wash clothes like twice a week. Our apartment isn’t overly the top nice or organized, but it stays clean for the most part. Example: we don’t vacuum or mop everyday or even make our beds everyday.
Some of you are probably thinking “OH MY GOSH! THE HORROR!” But in reality we both work a lot and when we come home, we just want to relax and play with our kitty, Mittens. I come home and I either want to paint or create a blog (thank you Pinterest and all of you wonderful bloggers who have dedicated time to help others get started! You are appreciated!)
The only actual type of organization we have in our house, is my filing cabinet. I have all my bills and paperwork organized and in individual file folders. That’s it. I used to do a budget list, but even now I hardly do those anymore. However it’s time to kick-start my butt in gear and actually get my life together. And no I’m not saying I going to run to the courthouse and marry my boyfriend tomorrow and have a bunch of kids and buy a house. I’m going to start much smaller than that.
The new plan
Ahhhh. Don’t you just love the feeling of thinking you are going to organize your entire life. 😀 I do too, but remember I’m lazy I said that earlier. Remember? I’ve read loads and loads of blogs about How to Organize your Life and to be honest they didn’t work for me. I’m not saying that they won’t work for you (because let’s be real everyone’s different and Pinterest is loaded with different blogs where people genuinely try to help. For real…go look for yourself). But I’m the kind of person who needs to motivate myself!
So here’s the plan:
- I’m going to change my lock-screen on my phone. Whaaaatttttt??? Why you ask? To set a reminder for myself to get more organized.
I believe so very firmly in the power of positivity. 🙂 So I’m going to try this and I have high hopes that I am going to slowly get my life organized. It’s going to take some time to realign my brain into not being lazy anymore, so be sure to check back in with me and hopefully we can motivate one another to get things done.
Thank all of you for spending some time with me while I wrote my very first blog post! EEEHHHHH! Come back and visit my blog everyday and I’ll have new posts! Please be patient with me as I figure this whole thing out. Pretty soon I’ll have my artwork gallery up and I want you guys to give me feedback on what you think. I will have my artwork for sale so please make sure you check that out! I’ll add more artwork every Sunday so make sure you come back to my page!
See you tomorrow!
