Do You Have One of These?
Or anything like it? I just posted a challenge to myself the other day at Get It Together, so that I'd have it all cleaned up by the end of this week. This pile has been hanging over my head for nearly two years, and by going public with it instead of hiding it, I've given myself some accountability, and an impetus to finally banish it. I've already dispatched more than half of it, and I'm chipping away at it every day. By week's end, I'll be completely free of this two-ton boulder on my psyche.
This has been a real gift to myself, and now, if you need it, I'd like to share it with you. So join me, if you have a secret (or not so secret) monster somewhere in or around your home that has been plaguing you, in the latest "I Dare You!" challenge, and free yourself! It could be anywhere--from a spare bedroom that always has the door shut, to a random pile somewhere in the house, like mine, to a garage that hasn't seen a car since time immemorial. It could even be outside--I have a couple of those myself, but I'm getting my house in order before I worry about that.
So, here's your assignment. Take a picture of your "monster," and however painful, post it. Either to your own blog, or in our "I Dare You!" flickr group. Put a link here in the comments, and tell us about your personal organizational bogeyman (Hey, it IS Delurk day, anyway). With accountability and encouragement, we can get each other through this, and purge these beasties.
Come on, play along, and I'll see you on the other side!
