Life is a Marathon

With a few rare unscheduled hours this weekend, I sat down and watched a movie I'd read about in a few reviews.

Brittany Runs a Marathon is rated R, and available free for Amazon Prime members. Based on a true story, it is the tale of a self-proclaimed failure at life who gets a wake-up call from her doctor, and begins transforming her life, literally, one step at a time.

Heart-felt, vulgar, hilarious, even uncomfortable at times, I was pleasantly surprised to get more than entertainment out of this movie.

This time of year, people are still focused on their New Year's Resolutions (many have also already given up!). Not only was this movie about the importance of setting goals and taking small steps to reach that goal, it is also about accepting who we are, and embracing the help of those around us who love us for being ourselves.

Change can be good. There's a lot of changes we can make, big and small, that could bring greater health, wealth, and happiness to our lives.

Acceptance is also good. Changes that are shame-driven, or set because of embarrassment or the desire to fit in can actually do more harm than good.

When I tell people that I am an organizer, more times than I can count, I've been told that they need me because they are a hoarder. This is most often not the case. There are lots of reasons why people may say this, but I"m guessing that the person really does want to make some kind of change.

Whether your need for change is big or small, if it has anything to do with organizing your home or office, I'm up for the challenge. Call if you need me.
