I saw the pantry disorganized one day – where the plastic containers with spices were laying one on top of another. I cannot find the spices that i need. I realized that i have to do something about it or i will one day be overwhelmed by the mess and do it anyway.
Why wait to a point of being overwhelmed when i can take self-responsibility right there?
So, i did act on the situation at hand. It took me 2 days to organize the pantry. First i looked at what i need – to finish this project. I saw that i need bottles of different sizes because i had different amounts of spices, dried food stuffs nuts and grains. There were stuff from about a year ago which was there before i came and live with L. So, its clear from this eye inspection that i need bottles of different sizes. The next thing is to dispose the old foodstuff and put them in the trash can.Someone will also have to throw the trash.
I then asked L to come with me in the grocery store to purchase these bottles. The next thing we looked at is the amount of money we have to have and how many bottles we have to purchase for all the food stuff to have a “place to stay” – a bottle.
We bought 2 dozens bottles first. We shared in the expenses because it will be both to our advantage.When i was transferring all the food items and spices inside the bottles i found out i need 2 dozens more – so we went to the grocery store again to buy 2 more dozens. L put away the trash.I finished the project in 2 days.
In cases where there are many personalities living together – if the personality does not return the food item at the place where one took it, other personalities in the group will not find it. So, the personality doing one’s job to put the salt back to where one got it so other personalities can find and return it to the same place is key so that all will be benefited – what is best for all.
Here, i can see the Commonsense points:
1.Money is needed in running a household
2.Seeing what needs to be done
3.Taking self-responsibility for what needs to be done – to do ones job
4.Measuring the time from when i acted on something and when i finish
5.I created something – a product – an organized pantry – that is what is best for both of us – which is best for all – where others will see the advantage for themselves too if they do what i do.
6. Everyone sharing the space in a house or apartment has to have a specific job that will contribute to what is best for all – living in that place.
Taking self-responsibility by doing self-forgiveness:
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself – to in the past not take self-responsibility in putting things where they belong – or do what i need to do or do what was assigned to me – for family members to be benefited equally by doing my job.
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to create competition between me and others within judgment, comparison and jealousy- where i see me as better than others – my mom and my sister -which makes me feel as if i am special than others – a polarity that creates friction – supporting consumerism and capitalism .
Organizing cannot happen when one does not have money to buy food. I suggest the equal monetary system – where all will have the basic necessities – to buy food etc. – which they need to survive in dignity and live life fully.
