One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Ordered and Organized | One Size Doesn't Fit All

Breadmaker. Garlic press. Carabiner. Padlocks.

These are things frequently on those “100 items you can throw away today” lists you find on Pinterest. Yet I use all those items named above. Regularly. I promise. I really do.

And I bet there are items on those lists that you use. Like VHS tapes. I tossed mine six or seven years ago, but my parents still watch theirs frequently. And records. I have a friend who collects them and listens to them at least weekly if not daily.

Don’t let anyone walk through your mind with dirty feet.

I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet. | Ordered and Organized

Let’s face it:  Folks try this every single day.  Family members.  Neighbors.  Strangers.  Sometimes even “friends.”

Every time I’m on my personal social media profiles–and particularly on Facebook–someone does this.  And I allow it to happen.  I read comments that add no value to my life.  I allow Facebook’s algorithms to mold my view of the world and politics.  I allow family members to make draining comments on my own status updates and photos because I don’t want to start a row.

Today it stops.  I don’t traditionally observe Lent, but given it starts today, what better time to give up something that adds very little value to my life but adds anxiety and stress and results in wasted time?

So join me on Instagram over the next 40 days as I provide daily challenges to help you walk away from Facebook drama–from the drama that starts in groups to the occasional arguments that start on your own profile or wall.
