Hi! I’m Naomi, a Houston Professional Organizer.
I’ve always had a passion for helping people. For years, I thought I wanted to be a doula or a lactation consultant. After I had my first child, the real struggle of motherhood hit me like a freight train, and I started to realize how little support there is. Motherhood is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be rewarding and amazing and beautiful and natural…right? What was I doing wrong? Why was it so hard?
I started to see and hear these patterns in the way mother’s spoke about themselves, their families, and their homes. I decided to stand up. I decided enough was enough. I became very vocal about postpartum depression, childbirth, breastfeeding, the need for HELP, and the ridiculous burden we put on our mothers. I became a source of information and support for my friends, my friends’ friends, and their friends’ friends. I had phone conversations with people I didn’t know because a friend told them I was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Truly, I was empathetic. I was never judgmental. I listened, and I validated their feelings when no one else had. I told them they were amazing. I told them they were worth it. I told them they were GOOD MOTHERS. In some cases, I was the only one in their lives saying it. This is a real problem. We MUST take care of our mothers. We must.
One of the many ways I provided support to these women was helping them in their homes. I’d deliver a meal, clean their bathrooms, help with a garage sale, coordinate a move, plan a party, and I’d help organize. We’d talk about breastfeeding, childbirth, routines, temper tantrums, poop, spit up, groceries, and the struggle of keeping up with the house.
When I discovered organizing as a profession, I was floored. I have found my place in the world. Through organizing, I help mothers free their minds and focus on the more important things, which really aren’t things at all.
