So after years of searching I have finally found the secret to having a clean house all the time! Seriously! The secret to my success? Cleaning my house all the time! Okay, well not exactly! But, I do clean very frequently! But, because I quickly put things away as soon as I am done using them or whenever I see things out my house is pretty much always clean. This is a challenge when I have 2 little people who constantly work to sabotage my efforts by dumping every toy they find out onto the floor! But! I will prevail! Having my house clean is super important to me. Not because I care what other people think but because it makes me feel less stressed and happier! When I am playing with my kids and the house is clean I feel like I can be totally present with them and not going over the to-do list in the back of my mind.
I know this is probably not a great epiphany for most of you! Most of you probably keep your houses clean by nature! But, I used to be a slob! Totally a slob! Ask my college roomate! It was horrible! So, it is not in my nature to pick things up and keep a clean house.
I am just so excited to finally get this figured out. I think I was always looking for a "magic pill" when it came to cleaning. I was looking for the easy way! But, let's be honest... there is no easy way in life. You want a clean house? Clean your house! You want to loose weight? Eat less, exercise more! You want to do better in school? Study more! Working hard is just a part of life.. one that I am learning to accept 26 years in!
