Virtue of the Week: Orderliness

Orderliness is being neat and living with a sense of harmony. You are organized and know where things are when you need them. Solve problems step by step instead of going in circles. Order around you creates order inside you. Orderliness gives you peace of mind.

You are practicing orderliness when you:

– Have a place to put each of your things,

– Put your things away in the same place every time,

– Have a plan before you begin any job,

– Create harmonious space that feels peaceful, and

– Appreciate the beauty and order of nature.


I live this day with order. I do things step by step. I create beauty and harmony in my space and in my life.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
