The word of the day is organize. How do you organize your day? Or is your life so chaotic that there is no way it can be organized? Have to admit, I'm a pretty organized person. Some could go so far a to say I'm compulsive. Perhaps it has something to do with the birth order. I grew up the eldest of eight children - that could have some bearing on that aspect of my personality.
One of my favorite maxims is a place for everything and everything in its place. As I slide toward the end of my life, that's one of the ways I use to reduce the stresses of 'forgetfulness.' With a life-long habit of the 'everything' mentioned above. For instance, I've never misplaced my glasses. Since I began wearing them at the age of two, they remain firmly planted on my face. They're the first thing I grab in the morning and the last thing I take off before, and sometimes after, I turn out the nightlight.
I'm not the sort of person who changes accessories to match the occasion. So my going-to-town handbag always lands on the same designated spot. My bag is one of those organizer types where there is a slot or pocket for everything.
For some, this may sound like a dull, boring way of life. My take is: I don't sweat the small stuff and that frees me to focus on the more important issues of life. Now...where did you say we were meeting for lunch? Let me find my note.
