I LOVE MY JOB! I recently shared this with a friend, and we both got very excited and animated about how wonderful this is! Here’s what I shared with her: on days where I don’t have any hands-on organizing scheduled or I’m not meeting with a new client, I feel a little blue.
I love what I do so much that I get a little down when I’m not doing it. But I’m happy to experience this low, because it means that I’ve found my calling; I found work that is challenging, fulfilling, and fun. It’s also exhausting, and sometimes I come home dirty, my muscles get sore, and my hands hurt. But I have never been afraid of hard work, messes, or chaos. In fact, I love the process of this work.
And I admire my clients. It takes courage to let someone into your home, your possessions, your challenges, and messes. For some of them, this is an emotional process. I admire them for asking for and accepting help. And my favorite part is when they feel lightness and relief.
So it is with gratitude and appreciation that I look forward to work every day. Look at that happy face!
