So, i’ve never written a blog before. Personally, when I thought about blogs, I envisioned people sitting in their pjs, eating ice cream out of a carton, and writing about their emotional break-ups.. but maybe that is just how people blog in movies.
About a month ago, I decided to finally make a business out of my ever-so-interesting hobby.. yeah, you guessed it- Organizing!!
I was stuck in a rutt and I didn’t know what to do with my life. I asked my mom, “mom, what should I do as a career for the rest of my life?” For weeks on end I was applying to random jobs on Indeed, as well as Government jobs. Did I really want a random, minimum-wage paying job? No! Did I want a job in the Government? Not really. When I thought Government, I thought long-term, secure, reliable income. None of that shouts of “EXCITING!!!!!” to me. At all. So, I posted an add on Facebook, offering my decluttering and organizing services, and from that moment on, I knew I had found my life long “career”.
Now, organizing to me doesn’t feel like a job, nor does it feel like a “career”. When I think about the word career, for some reason or another, I associate it with old people. I think it’s because so many people I know work their jobs, “careers”, and all they ever really talk about is how they can’t wait to retire! Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to retire any time soon. Whats the fun in that? If I was to retire tomorrow, I wouldn’t be able to meet new people everyday as I do now when I meet new clients and their families. I wouldn’t be able to provide my advice on how to organize and de-clutter peoples’ space. I wouldn’t be able to see the excitement and appreciation on clients’ faces when I tell them I can finally make their dreams come true. By ‘dreams’ I don’t mean winning the lottery or finding a cure for cancer, BUT, I can find a spot for everything in their home! That’s the next best thing, right?
I do apologize as my writing skills aren’t very advanced. My mom always tells me, “CASS! You have to proof read before you post anything!” I’m sorry mom, but even if I proof read, it doesn’t mean i’m going to notice my mistakes. So, going forward, just embrace all the silly mistakes in my writing, that could have been so easy to fix; because, what’s the fun in that, right?
