I’ve always been an “out of sight, out of mind” type person. I remember it driving my mom crazy because when I was younger she would tell me to clean my room and I would just throw stuff under my bed or in my closet, because if you can’t see it the mess isn’t there right?? I think that’s the type 9 in me…
Over the holidays my office became the room we threw all of our presents, wrapping things, and stuff we didn’t want our guests seeing and in result of that, I just stopped working in my office all together. I closed the door and did all of my work from our dining room table. If I couldn’t see the mess in my office then it wasn’t there.
…but it was and I could feel the weight of that anytime I needed to get a notebook or a pen out of my office. It was this hidden thing that was causing a good amount of unneeded anxiety in me.
2019 seems to be starting off as the year of organizing and simplifying. I actually like watching Marie Kondo’s show just to see the before and after result.
So here’s mine from my office, enjoy!
