I remember so clearly how overwhelmed I felt when I had 3 preschool children and was trying to juggle the crazy life at home, with working in our own business.
Add to that a stint in hospital with subsequent months of recovery and a year of many big life events, that on their own each would have been enough to deal with.
It felt like each time I picked myself up I got knocked down again. I started to wonder if I was ever going to feel ok again, or would I always have a knot in my stomach waiting for the next thing to happen.
One of the ways I got through this challenging time was to control the environment around me as much as I could. When I was feeling anxious or sad I would get stuck into cleaning out a pantry or a wardrobe or rearranging and restyling a room (often in the middle of the night!). For me, this was cathartic and helped me to feel more peaceful and in control. I realise that not everybody is like that and that for some people they feel so overwhelmed by the clutter and disorganisation in their home that they can’t see a way to get on top of it and it just adds to their feelings of stress.
SO HERE’S THE POINT OF MY POST - I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER MY SERVICES FREE TO SOMEONE IN NEED 😊
Do you know of a Mum in Auckland, New Zealand who is going through a really tough time and would love to have the services of a Home Organiser/Interior Stylist for a day? If so please DM me to nominate them.
Please share this post if you like as my Instagram account is less than a month old and I don’t have a large number of New Zealand followers yet. It would be lovely to give as many people as possible a chance to think of someone they would like me to help. Nominations close August 31st. EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 8th 😊
If I’m not able to choose your nominated person this time, I apologise, but I will be offering this at least once a year, probably more so keep an eye out.
Auckland, New Zealand
