What can I say? I truly LOVE what I “do”. Bringing order to chaos is oddly very satisfying to me. I suppose it’s a small taste of control over a world that sometimes appears to be anything but controllable. Further more, organizing a space brings so much relief and satisfaction to the recipient that I just can’t help but love it.
Many times when I am organizing a space or coaching a client I get to experience a sense of “flow”. Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi founded the idea of “flow”, and he describes it as a state of being where you’re entirely present and incredibly content. Many people experience flow when they run, dance, paint, meditate, play with their children, and even during ordinary and mundane activities. Studies now suggest that the more we experience states of flow, the more satisfied we are with life.
What does this have to do with my blog? Well, I want to express that at the core of my being, I am passionate about helping others live their best life.
Disorganization causes and feeds stress. Who needs more stress in their life?
Ever feel like this?
My hope is that by writing about organization and life in general, I will inspire my readers to be intentional about how they structure and spend their time, and, as a result, experience more states of “flow” and satisfaction in their life.
Will you take this journey with me?
I certainly hope so!
What do you love to do that brings about a state of “flow”?
