Flylady – My Clutter-Free Queen

Three years ago I happened upon a website about cleaning and managing the chaos in my life. I didn’t realize I was about to step into a different world. A world of Flylady. Flylady.net is more than just a housecleaning and home management website. Flylady creates a family (of Flybabies) from the women who join her Flygroup. In this family you learn how to feel unconditional acceptance. We’re talking about a group of people (mostly women) who have all felt the embarrassment of a cluttered and dirty house and has learned that it doesn’t make you a bad person.

Flylady has her own language as well as her own innovative way to keep you like in order. My favorite “Flyladyism” was CHAOS = ‘Can’t have anyone over syndrome’ which was the state of my home quite often. This acronym can also apply to self-esteem – if you can’t love yourself, you can’t truly love anyone else either. Also if you’ve ever had a weight problem, you know that extra pounds don’t make you feel like inviting someone in for a night of intimacy.

In Flylady’s world, housework is home blessings while sayings like “You’re never behind, jump in where you are.” give you a wonderful sense of acceptance. Even if your house isn’t a mess and you don’t have a problem with clutter, Flylady can give you advice on how to make your life run even smoother. She covers everything from dinnertime to teaching children how to clean up their rooms.
