What is a “mentor”? According to Oxford Dictionary, it is an experienced and trusted advisor. As I have journeyed through my life, I have had many mentors. Most of them have been family and friends, unstructured relationships, that I lean on when I am dealing with big decisions and stressful times in my life. I am very thankful for these mentors in my life.
In this blog, I am sharing about a different kind of mentor. In the last year, I decided that I wanted to be intentional in this area of my life. I sensed that I needed to find someone who was steps ahead of me and willing to listen. I remember exactly when I made this decision – August 2018, I was journalling when I was on vacation and I had a real sense this was a next step for me.
I prayed about who that person could be. Someone came to mind right way so I decided to contact them before I convinced myself not to reach out! I am so grateful for my mentor. She is an incredible woman filled with wisdom. She understands the heart of a mother, what it is like to run a business, and she understands the ups and downs of life (this is not a comprehensive list – just the highlights! :). She is an amazing listener and I cherish the time that I spend with her. Does this sound like something that you could use in your life? Maybe it would be a blessing to have various mentors (one who is steps ahead of you) in many different areas of your life.
Do you need an “organizing” mentor? I would be honoured to be that person for you. I do not profess to have all the answers because I absolutely don’t! As we always say to our clients, we are professional . . . not perfect! I have messy spaces in my house, I don’t always get my laundry put away on the same day that it is washed, I am constantly having a war in my mind of what to get rid of due to my sentimental attachment to items and my desk would NOT be good advertising for Heart of the Matter! As I am typing this blog, I stepped back and decided to show you a picture of my desk . . . right here and right now. I didn’t move a thing for the purposes of this picture! 🙂
I am not perfect . . .but I have been collecting and working in the organizing industry for 15 years now! I have been reading and going to organizing conferences. I and have been a part of Professional Organizers in Canada for 15 years.
I would love to share my knowledge and heart with you. I would love to journey with you, partner with you. I’ll give suggestions and share my tricks of the trade. I’m want to be someone to vent with and celebrate baby steps with! I don’t want this to sound like a sales pitch so I will stop now. If this blog resonated with you, then reach out. I would be happy to connect and journey with you!
