As the daughter of a single mother who was also a hoarder (yes! a real hoarder like on those shows) I can tell you that I learned about cleaning entirely on my own, entirely awkwardly like it was all a big secret and I did not learn homemaking entirely effectively. Not even a little effectively. I am a homemaking disaster, really. Early on after moving into our home I'd stalk my neighbors with weird questions like, "oh, how often do you clean your baseboards?" (ps - they lied, they had no idea either. Most of us move out of a house before you have to clean the damn walls or baseboards.. or they just hire someone to repaint)
So what does this have to do with Confidence? Well, if I am coming from an untidy mess, I think I feel like one myself. If things are tidy I can feel calm and centered and that is a great base for confidence. Tidy enough, I mean. Trust me, I am no perfectionist :D.
If you are next level (or you weren't raised by a hoarder) then I see that clean and tidy home base as a springboard for creativity. Your decorating reflects your creativity and you can have the space to create! That is nice Whatever your "home" is, whether it is a room, and apartment, a house, a mansion, it can reflect your personality and affect your mood. You deserve for it to be as you like it.
Let me know where you are on the hoarder to tidy spectrum :) Do you find it easy to keep things tidy or do you struggle? Do you have a space to be creative? I can't wait to hear about your experience with this subject.
Till next time!!
ps- for my Granola sisters, what is your go-to cleaning stuff? I have a norwex like set of wipes and I have Branch Basics on my wishlist but for now I just use a lot of vinegar and baking soda :) Except for my toilets which I go full nasty sudsy bubbles on!
