Today we have completed nine of eighteen 3-hour organizing sessions in this “Paper Layers Excavation” project phase of my larger “Harmony at Home” estate-management program started January 15 of this year (2014).
Last week we joyfully reached a project milestone that involved home personal paper files (personal interests, letters, family photos, 2012 wedding vendor contracts, etc.) being completely separated and removed from home office paper files (marketing, programs, development, business planning, etc.). This success is allowing us this week to further consolidate and group office-related items and begin creating home office systems that will serve us presently and in the future.
When I asked the professional organizer how she felt about the project last week, she said, “I have to admit that the paper process is exhausting… but knowing you I knew we’d get the papers into files.” She agrees we’re making good progress. I’m personally thrilled to witness a new level of organization in my work-related papers that I had attempted in the past but was unable to sustain due to chronic family health-care crises interruptions.
I am grateful for this new chapter of quiet in my adult life, though mixed with the sadness of losing both parents, it allows for my own life to become better rooted and supported.
Moving forward with a listening heart,
vision, inquiry, and action,
