Did you know that you are wonderful just as you are? Just because the Organizationally Gifted people don’t understand us and judge, us doesn’t mean that we need to judge ourselves. We need to stop doing that… We do need to understand how we tick however, and that there is absolutely nothing wrong with us; we’re not lazy or unmotivated, just a little clueless.
So this blast from the past was one of my first Motivation Monday videos. It was done on November 6th, 2012, and I was on line waiting to get gas (petrol)… Let me know what you think!
I recently did a video while out with my girlfriends and asked them to share some of their homemaking tips. Well… all my girlfriends are OG (organizationally gifted) and are really wonderful people.
But! I cannot use that video because it turned out to be kinda judgey. They don’t get it. Turned out to be really preachy… I kinda felt like they thought that we were all stupid… Ever notice when someone is trying to help you at home they talk slowly to us. Like “Yoooou haaaave toooooo puuuuut aaaawwwwwaaay yoooouur thhhiiiinngggsss” (YIKES!)
That got me thinking… I wrote a book called “Finally Organized.” I did it in the fashion of a 12-step program, beginning it in a “Slobs Anonymous” meeting.”
Here is the 12th Step for the Organizationally Challenged:
Step 12 – Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of the steps, we carry this message to other slobs, and practice these principles in all our affairs.
One of my goals is to break the social stigma society has in regard to the OCP (Organizationally Challenged Person).
It must begin with us, the OC! We are our worst critics and judge ourselves way too harshly; let’s stop doing that.
If a mess makes you squeamish, you need to find BettyCrocker.com-R-Us. We are not everyone’s cup of tea; we all can find our space where we can contribute and be fed.
My point to all of this is that we are real people who have real issues. There are other real, and just as lovely people, with their own issues, who just do not get us, and we shouldn’t be concerned that they don’t, or expect them to.
We need to be able to be transparent and honest if we are going to support and help each other. Realizing that everyone has their sh#! is a great first step to accepting what we are, and not feeling bad about it.
No judging here. Not by me, not by anyone who is in my world, and I implore you to go easy on yourself. It is the only way to feel the joy on the journey. We are not loving our messes; we are accepting and loving who we are. 🙂
