As I listened to my husband’s voice on the phone, so happy, and telling me over and over how fantastic I was, how well I had done, I realized how very lucky I was. I am surrounded by people who care about me and believe in me. My husband, my dad, my mom, my grown daughter—even my toddler thinks I’m hot stuff.
I walked away from the radio station and felt as if I was dancing on the clouds. I had managed to pull it off, my first foray into radio, and with very few “umms” or “errs” or mixing up of words (well except for that whole ‘drawers in closets and closets in bathrooms’ snafu). I had sounded confident, kind, calm, and professional.
Wow. I had done it. Really, really done it.
I even got a compliment from Walt Bodine on my radio voice. That just made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. The small child in me is still bouncing up and down, saying, “They liked me, they really, really liked me!” Oh wait, maybe I’m channeling Sally Fields.
I realize too, having had some time to think about it, that this is just the beginning. I am so excited when I think about the possibility of doing more talks on the radio, teaching more classes, and really getting the word out there.
And not just because more clients will come knocking, but also because so many of us just need a nudge, a tiny little push, to take off and change our lives for the better. Whether those changes are having a more organized house or losing weight or finding a job that speaks to our strengths. I like the thought of inspiring change and growth. The idea that little old me could encourage another human being to be something more, and consequently find happiness and pride in themselves—it makes me feel good inside and out.
Two callers mentioned that they had started cleaning their desks as they listened to the show. I grinned like a fool at the compliment. The show did just what I hoped it would—energized its listeners to start making some changes.
Let’s face it—in your home are you and your possessions – it’s time to figure out who owns who. And if the possessions are the owners of the day, it’s time to turn the tables. With or without a professional organizer—it’s time you turned things around. After all, aren’t you worth it?
