Terri's Get Organized Journal, Week 1

Dear Diary,

Week one,"unearthing the roots of chaos," has been very fulfilling. I finished the writing assignment, but am still pondering the questions. I, too, grew up in a home that was tidy, so I'm guessing I'm one of those rebels. When I moved out on my own, I made sure I even had different toilet paper than what was at home! It's not that I had a bad childhood or anything, it's just that I had finally become my own person. I could do things "my" way. Wish I hadn't gotten so carried away in the "housekeeping" area!

So here I am learning about myself and promising myself that this time my organization mission will work. I'm already feeling better about getting those three things done on a daily basis. Even though they seem like only a small part of what I have to do, it feels good to be accomplishing something.

I still get a little overwhelmed at times seeing what's left, and sometimes I get a nervous pit in my stomach when I get close to completing something. Gripping fear? Why? More pondering to do!

Looking forward to next week's assignment.
