College Student Learns a Valuable Lesson
Recently, I was asked to help a mom whose son was getting ready for college. He was excited to go, but was not at all ready for the transition. His room was filled with the clutter of his childhood. There were clothes everywhere, much of which he didn’t like or wear. He had many toys and stuffed animals that could have been collected and donated. His room needed to be reviewed from top to bottom. He had no idea how to even begin the organizing process.
Together we sorted through all his belongings. What he was left with were the things he loved and used, organized so that he could easily find what he needed. He now knew exactly how to pack for college. “I have my room back. I can breathe now,” said the soon-to-be college student.
This proved to be the perfect send-off for both mother and son. The son had his room organized and learned some skills that would help him adjust to a new, smaller space. Meanwhile, Mom enjoyed the neat room, as well as her son’s growing confidence.
There’s a sense that things are moving again. In my neighborhood renovations are taking place. Homes are selling and people are moving. These transitions can be a challenge as well as a blessing. Much of what we do at Organizing Coach Company involves helping people get organized, so that they can move forward in their lives. And sometimes it is not just for them, but for their entire family.
