I am blessed to have a handful of friends who consistently inspire, love, encourage and support me. I think that it is high time that I introduce you to one of those friends.
Beth Bracaglia is a Maryland based Professional Organizer and the Chief Organizing Officer of Simply Organized. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). Beth has over (15) years of experience helping her clients to organize their homes and offices. She has experience in fields as diverse as retail management, technology, event management, training & development and restaurant consulting.
I asked Beth to answer this question: “When you fall down, what is the one sure thing you turn to that picks you up?” Here is what my amazing friend had to say.
I have always had a very positive outlook on life, yet I still have those days that can throw me a curve ball. When things seem to be falling down, the one sure thing that I turn to pick me up is my family. They have always been there to support my goals and dreams, no matter what.
I am blessed with an extremely positive mother who always told me that there was nothing that I couldn’t accomplish in my life and she’s been such an amazing role model. I am also so fortunate to have my sister Amy, who is my best friend. She has (5) kids, works a 40+ hour work week, and still always finds time to chat on the phone and lift me up if I’m having a tough day.
And then, there is my amazing husband Nick. We are celebrating 13 years of marriage next month and Nick loves me exactly as I am and is always there for me. I have jokingly referred to him as “St. Nick” and it really is true. He’s such a wonderful partner and I know how lucky I am to have him to share our lives together.
When I was younger, all of my friends were settling down and getting married. I often wondered if I would ever find someone who could understand, appreciate, and not try to change me. One particularly frustrating evening, I sat down and wrote a list of the (10) attributes that my ideal partner would have never figuring that I would find someone who had them all. You want to know something? Just about six months later, I met my future husband and the bonus was that Nick has nine out of ten on that list!
Each and every day, I am truly grateful for my husband and family for their love and support whenever I need it most. It’s what keeps me moving forward and inspired!
