Staying Organized In Midlife

Who me? Organized? My husband might tell you otherwise, but I do find it hard to keep track of our weekly schedule.

You know: caregiving for a lung patient, working part-time only in the summer months right now, and those are swing shifts.

Sometimes morning shift which means you need your beauty rest or evening shift which means after you close you usually hang around for a drink before walking home. That’s right, my job is a huge three minute walk from my condominium.

Then there is Grocery shopping, which these days shelfs are sometimes empty or prices cause you to double think your purchases.

Tidying up, paying bills, remembering appointments and his medications and so on. Plus writing and running a podcast. I have always thought of life as an adventure. Finding time for the adventure part also needs to be organized.

Midlife and Organizing:

You would think organizing in midlife would be a piece of cake. The kids are grown and hopefully out of the house. Grandchildren visit, have fun and return home. But, midlife has tons of

Small, nagging doubts, encouraging a series of dramatic, seemingly irrational events and ultimately great change.


Who out there in midlife ages look around and think, I should change the colors this year or I should do something different with that room now that the children are gone?

That my friend is the small part of restlessness and discontentment in midlife.


If 2020 taught us anything, my hope is that we have found a balance in life.

Remember a dead battery can not jump another dead battery! Get away from people who can’t charge your spirit when you need a jump!

That goes for organizing too, find the method or routine that you can come home and feel welcomed.

Life is crazy but there are plenty of resources to put the spark back into life.

There are amazing organizers and life coaches out there willing to help.
