Many would say that I have OCD or that I am a clean/germ freak. Opinions are like assholes and everyone has one, am I right? OCD stands for OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER, people I am not that organized and I sure do break my own rules on occasion. Anyone who knows me knows that I am thriving as a business women, a mother, a human being in general. I don't ask for help and I get shit done! Part of what I do for a living is help others find happiness with their careers and their daily routine. The correct term for what I do is called Life Coaching, but I like to call my self a Career Coach, because I believe that so much of our unhappiness comes from our daily routine. Our jobs, our homes, the way we start the day. When you dread Mondays it means you need to take a look at what you are doing and whether it is worth it. I love Mondays and I wish most of you would stop hurting Mondays feelings because it's tired of being singled out! I know I know, HAHA Mollie! But seriously stop having a negative attitude about Mondays.
So here is what I am getting into today. I truly believe I have become successful because I have trained myself to have structure, routine and discipline in my life. All things that essentially come together as meaning something similar, but all with different definitions in the dictionary. Sorry I won't get too nerdy on you right now. Like I was saying in the beginning of this post, many like to poke fun at me for being what they might call "OCD", "Clean Freak", but really I just have my shit together...For the most part (insert toothy smile). In my home I do have a specific way I keep things and specific rules that everyone must follow if they want to be in it. Outside of my home I WILL NOT tell others how to be or how to live unless of course they are paying me to do so. People take their shoes off upon entering my home, that is a must, even my 2.5 year old knows to do it. I also expect people to wash their hands, especially after using the bathroom, because lets be honest, it's gross if you don't. I believe that sloppiness is a factor in an unstructured life. If you don't care about your home or yourself, you are probably not going to care too much about getting yourself to the top of where you really want to be. If where you want to be is dragging your ass and complaining about Mondays then more power to you, stop reading and get on with your amazingly unorganized life that you have accepted as being your ultimate life.
I just shrug my shoulders when people make fun of my way of life, but one thing I know to be true is that most people that have gotten their shit together for the most part and have happy structured lives, live very similarly like I do. I also believe it is important for your children to be aware of respect for your personal belongings, your body, your health and your routine. Don't get me wrong, we all have days where we need to be a slob, where we leave the dishes in the sink for an entire day, where we don't take a shower. No one is perfect and I personally don't know anyone that is, even super models pick their nose and scratch their ass cracks and go sit right back down on the couch to pet their dog...Yes I have seen this first hand. I promise you, when you start focusing on the correct things, starting with getting your home and yourself together and truly respecting all of your personal belongings, everything else starts falling into place and you subconsciously start training yourself to be a fucking boss.
Being Single AF and owning it has made me a happier person. I use to direct a lot of my focus on the wrong things such as relationships, taking care of someone else because I was afraid of being alone and letting the habits they brought with them permeate my home. That isn't the way to live and I was suffocating. My main focus is living a happy, clean, structured life. Routine is important, even if you tweak it a little bit here and there, as long as you have it, you are on the right track. Remember Single AF just means that you are owning it all and I have personally helped a lot of people get to where they want to be by starting with themselves and their personal spaces. So the haters can poke fun all they want, it truly doesn't bother me, especially as a women with a child who is 32 years old and living (what you young people like to say now as), "my best life". That's right, live your best life, or holla at me and I'll whip your cute ass into shape. Just don't forget to take your damn dirty shoes off when you walk into my house! (wink wink, kiss kiss)
