Change Can Mean Big Challenges
Spoke to someone the other day on the phone. She was trying to figure out a way to change her mindset about something that was affecting her health. It is imperative for her to make serious life changes. When she first started on this new, drastic, life journey she did very well. Very motivated and disciplined. However, somewhere down the line she slowly started to revert back to her old habits which were taking a toll. Not only on her health but her thoughts. She asked me ‘Why?…Why do I do this to myself?’
I knew she had my 2 decks of affirmation cards (Inspirational and Motivational) and suggested to go through them and pick out a few that resonated with what she was currently having challenges with. These 2 decks have de-cluttering and organizing quotes but they also contain ‘Life’ quotes. As we were speaking she went and grabbed them. She thumbed through them, reading each one out loud. Sure enough 1/3 of 1 single deck was hitting home and they immediately started to change her thought process and motivated her again to get back on track. I told her to put a few throughout the house and read them everyday to help remind her what she is trying to achieve. This will reiterate ‘why’ she must stay on track.
I get that change isn’t easy. However, it’s all in how you manage it. I will be following up with her!
Just like de-cluttering and organizing, if you want to see change and results you must put in the effort. If you can’t seize the moment, create it! Make it happen, start today! Do not stop trying. Do whatever it takes to motivate yourself to keep you on track. If change was easy, we would all be spectacular, all the time! We know there are ups and downs in life but it’s how and when we get back up if we fall.
If you fall, get back up!
So what…you fell. No one was watching but you! Change can mean big challenges. So get back up, brush yourself off and begin again! If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it! Find what motivates you and keep going! If you want to reach your goals, you must push through the difficult times and challenges that lie ahead. You got this!

Did you know that in October of 2022 I created the ‘Adult version‘ of The Adventures of Princess Katie – Putting Things Back?! I created 2 decks of Affirmation cards. Both great for de-cluttering and organizing or just life in general! I use them too! I remove the de-cluttering & organizing quotes from both decks and use the the rest of the cards as everyday affirmations! They help get you through any challenge you are currently going through or goals that you want to tackle. Both decks are currently sold at events or in person. Hoping to change that soon!
