I will admit I feel a small pang of guilt every time I walk into our master bedroom. No matter how hard I try, it always seems to be a bit messy and attract strange clutter (a running theme for my clients as well).
I know people say that the kitchen is the heart of the home but I really feel like it is the Master Bedroom. The way you keep that room says a lot about, not just who you are but, if you’re married or living with someone, who you are as a couple. And, as a good friend of mine put it, how you tend to that space is likely a reflection of how you tend to the relationship. (However, if that is the case – uh oh! Our relationship needs some serious tending!)
So, I am challenging myself and asking you to do the same. For one month, I will dutifully ensure that that our room is clean, organized and clutter free. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Bed made, floor clean, dresser clutter free. Through the month, I’ll keep track of how this directly affects my relationship with my husband. I am going to also take into account what that does to our family as a whole and the mood that it sets.
I’ve added one ‘before’ image. It’s the place that bothers me the most and it’s the dresser. As you can see, it just collects random bits of clutter…
… All of which will be put away right now!
See you in a month!
