My Story

Hello, I'm Monica! Nice to meet you!

I'm a woman with just about every title a woman can have (Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, etc...), but I proudly add Survivor to the list. When I was younger I was very carefree with my body. I ate what I wanted, never worked out, and had no desire to pay attention to my health. As the years went on, I developed Chronic Kidney Disease, went on dialysis, and eventually received a new kidney (that's the short version, I'll go deeper into all of this later). One of the biggest things that kept me going was my organization. I always felt at peace when I knew what was (or what was potentially) coming next.

I'd like to help you achieve that kind of peace, too!

I decided to do this after consistently being asked by many people (doctors, nurses, friends, family, even random people I don't know!) how I'm able to stay on top of everything going on in my life. In short, my system takes will, organization, determination, and most of all, faith.

Although I have my own system, I'm excited to help you create your own system by providing tips and tools to not just maintain but to create peace your life. Your CORNER is your life! It's all yours, so feel free to create and recreate it to fit every aspect of your life!



Trust Your Process

Everyone has their own organization system, whether you always throw your dirty clothes into the same corner (missing the basket altogether!) or you methodically sort your clothes into different baskets as you remove them for the day. The important thing isn't how neat it is, but how well you're able to navigate your life with your system. No matter how you manage your corner, you should feel comfortable with what you do.

With that said, everything you read here is not a directive. Think of it as a buffet, take what you want, leave what you don't want. And if you really enjoy it, feel free to share it! If you don't, feel free to tell me why. I take constructive criticism seriously and will take it into consideration, but if you're just being mean, don't expect me to respond.

Life changes with every second and it's a struggle to stay on top of it. That's where Create Your Corner comes in. My goal is to provide you with ideas, tips, tools, inspiration, and motivation to help you make your life what YOU want it to be, not what others think it should be.
