“You Are a Great Organizer” by Joan Y. Edwards
This is Day 7 of “Say Good Things February.”
You are a great organizer. You put furniture, belongings, and necessities into an orderly, functional, and coherent structure. In your home and office, you have a place for everything and everything is in its place. You give away clothing that doesn’t fit and household items that aren’t used to the needy. You keep papers orderly. If you can’t repair things yourself, you hire a skilled person to do it for you. You recycle as many items as you can to keep things out of the landfill. You get as many things ready the night before so that the next day runs smoother and isn’t overwhelming. You break down large tasks that take a long time into small steps so that you get them done ahead of time or on time.
Repeat these statements with “I” rather than “You” to make them true affirmations for you.
I am a great organizer. I put furniture, belongings, and necessities into an orderly, functional, and coherent structure. In my home and office, I have a place for everything and everything is in its place. I give away clothing that doesn’t fit and household items that aren’t used to the needy. You keep papers orderly. If I can’t repair things myself, I hire a skilled person to do it for me. I recycle as many items as I can to keep things out of the landfill. I get as many things ready the night before so that the next day runs smoother and isn’t overwhelming. I break down large tasks that take a long time into small steps so that I get them done ahead of time or on time.
I discovered after I kept saying these things over and over again for days, weeks, months, and years, they became true because of actions I took. I need a stronger belief in these statements. They aren’t all true, yet. But, I work diligently every year to encourage my husband and me to downsize items we don’t use. The fact that we love books and like to reread the self-help ones leaves me with an abundance of books to store in my house.
It seems that the words others told me when I was a child are still alive and what others told me as an adult. My advice is keep working on it. Your organizational skills and my organizational skills will improve with education, tackling the problem, and believing in ourselves.
I put three resources that have great ideas for being organized. I hope they help you. I found a few to help me.

Your subconscious mind will lead you to make it true. Believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s possible. You have to believe it’s true. Believe in you. Love yourself. Love your organizing skills.
