Last week, I watched The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse short film and listened to the accompanying audiobook. Combined, it's a remarkably compelling 92 minutes to the credit of author Charlie Mackesy. Here are some key takeaways (my goodness, there are many more) from this film and book as inspiration on your organizing journey:
"What is the bravest thing you've ever said? asked the boy. 'Help,' said the horse.
'Asking for help isn't giving up,' said the horse. 'It's refusing to give up."
It's not always easy for me to ask for help. But I've learned that help is healing, and vulnerability is strength. If getting organized has been a struggle throughout most of your adult life and negatively impacts your day-to-day life despite all your efforts, you may be affected by Chronic Disorganization (CD). If you don't have CD but are living with brain-based challenges such as ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression, working with a professional who can honor your needs may be beneficial. You can't solve a problem you can't name.

"The greatest illusion," said the mole, "is that life should be perfect."
Organized living is not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. We all have unique goals and needs, individual preferences, and an idea of what an organized life is. If organization increases stress, it's time to shift your routine or system. It must work for you. Since perfection doesn't exist, I invite you to concentrate on progress.

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" the mole asks the boy. "Kind," answers the boy.
The story conveys a powerful message about living with more kindness for yourself and others and asking for help when needed. So, I implore you, don't abandon yourself. Please be patient, kind, and all the good things to yourself as you embrace an organized life.

My takeaways may feel like a spoiler, but I assure you it's overflowing with wisdom! If you've already read or seen it, or if you end up doing so, please let me know. Let's keep the conversation going on Instagram or via email.
I'm grateful for all your support during Rock Your Routine and Beautiful Home, Beautiful Life Summits. I had so much fun engaging through these platforms!

with gentle kindness.
