Planning, Organizing and Getting My Ducks in a Row, Part 2

In my last post (Planning and Organizing and Getting All My Ducks in a Row, Part 1) I shared what a typical day looks like for me. I shared that I would like a better organized, planned, and intentional life. I don’t live in a complete dump, or in complete chaos, but I could sure stand to change some things. Basically, I need to get all my ducks in a row. Grab those wandering little suckers and put them in their place.

So, in the spirit of lining up ducks, behold some of my thoughts on organization:

First of all, let me be clear about what this blog post is not. This is not a well thought out list of organizational methods. It is not a “listicle” (what an awful word) of “life hacks”. I’m not the expert. I really don’t know much of anything. And that leads me to what this post is.

It is a way to start a conversation about the reality of intentional living. Maybe some people put a system in place in their lives and there it stays until the end of time. For me and my family it seems like our schedules and plans are an ever-evolving system that can still use a considerable amount of work. I’d like to get better about this, again, to have more stability. But I’d also like to be honest about how difficult this is for us.

Loneliness and the Search for Belonging

A friend posted this on her Facebook last night:

Loneliness

I really identified with it, which made me want to write about it, since that is how I process and communicate best. Talk about “raw”, this post is going to be raw. Bear with me while I work it out, and then speak up and tell me what you think.

I am lonely. Which is strange, because I am always surrounded by people. Small, not-quite-grown people mostly, but people.

I know that human interaction does not quite fill that loneliness, no matter how hard I try, and it never will. Christ alone will completely fill that hole. But I still want the human interaction.

Calling all Momsters

Welcome Friend!

Have you ever found yourself wishing you belonged to a community of women with a passion for creativity, spirituality, and home and family management? Or maybe you already do, but you’re looking to expand that community?

Three Headed Momster was born out of my desire to be a part of a community like that. A community filled to the brim with women who share tips, stories, advice, and encouragement with one another. A community founded on kindness and honesty. A community where I knew I could be raw and vulnerable and authentic. A community where I didn’t have to be anything other than myself to fit in.

I live in a small town. It’s a lovely town, full of lovely people. But I don’t fit in. I am strange and intense and bold and awkward and very, very honest. I love those things about myself and so do a few other people. But mostly I seem to make people feel uncomfortable. Have you ever felt like that?

Also? I don’t have a big, extended family like everyone else in my area seems to have. I strongly desire a huge, loud, too helpful, always-there family. I actually come from a pretty broken family, and have had to learn SO MANY THINGS the hard way. The hard way meaning years and years of trial and error, and so many (too many) instances where I realized way late in the game that I was doing something completely wrong. In fact, the things I didn’t have to learn the hard way were gifts of knowledge, wisdom and correction from the few mentors and “sisters” that are in my life.

A big family and community means people available to guide, advise, suggest and teach. I want that!!!

I know there are others like me out there. Maybe you also live in a town full of polished moms and fishing dads and you and your husband like skulls and art and disorder and loud families. Maybe you are completely different from me. Either way, if what you are looking for is the opportunity to learn and grow and be really real with a community of friends that will become like sisters, you are welcome here
