My experience with melanoma this September has lead me to reach into my magic chest for different creative endeavors than the norm as Autumn stretches her orange, yellow and red carpet at my feet.
My heart shaped scar right on the apple of my cheek is scary and beautiful. It also pretty much counts me out of stage productions for at least six months.
Instead of theater, I am going to work on my business, creative projects and complete long overdue tasks – the biggies that usually hover over me until they get ignored out of existence.
One of the challenges I signed up to do as a way to stay inspired in October is ….
Announcing….. the “Get Your Life
Organized” Boot Camp
I am, by nature, fairly organized. I am, by practice, better when I have more time and am all set up. This is where I have gotten lost over and over as an entrepreneurial mom, volunteer, active community member and artist-about-town. My tendency to “get everything set” has wavered.
I haven’t done the best at training my family to keep everything set, either, so this October we will focus on exactly that: getting – and staying – organized in our household and school/work/life work.
This is an invigorating time for me.
It is true what people say about cancer: it definitely causes one to take a different perspective than the norm. What I am enjoying is my lack of resentment and newfound relationship with grace.
I would love to share my organizing adventure with you and alongside you. Are you up for it?
Here is a link to Sharon Rowley's“Get Your Life Organized” boot camp linky. I would love to experience this alongside friends as well as making new friends along the way.
Here is the plan for October
Week 1: Creating Functional Stations in your Home
so that everything has a place when it enters your home
Week 2: Establishing Routines
to help you stay organized and prepare yourself for the day or week ahead
Week 3: Calendars and To Do Lists
Week 4: Getting Ahead of the Game
menu planning, grocery planning, after-school charts, and more!
I don't know about you, but I am excited to end this year with a more organized home and business than how I started this year.
Collect strategies, tips and the best Sharon Romney, a Mom of 6, offers along with a supportive community of fellow Boot Camp adventurers. What more could I ask for than this?
