The first step for some can be the inability to ask for help because they've been taught they should be able to do it all on their own. The first step for others can be feeling helplessness, hopelessness, or shame, too scared to ask for help. The first step for the clients I work with are mostly the first two examples above and they've also experienced a type of loss or trauma and they realize that their physical surroundings may be causing some of the grief or contributing to the obstacles they are facing.
Your first step can be in the not knowing or in the fear. They both can become so heavy that you have no alternative but to jump outside of your comfort zone and that's why I'm here to help. Maybe you have all of your ducks in a row and are just too busy to ask for help, I can help you too! It'll be like two friends getting together, like old times, having a chat, and then, voilà, the clutter will be gone and you won't care to remember the old way because the new way will feel so good.
It's more than OK to ask for help, and for some of you it will not only be life-changing, it will be life-saving. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing your home is meant to be your sanctuary, your safe place, the place where you go to seek refuge from the days events to find peace and solace. Once you start tidying you might even look back and realize the obstacle to getting tidy was bigger in your mind than in reality.
Remember, you can only change the things you are doing if you change the things you are doing. So, find that bright shiny version of yourself that's been patiently waiting underneath all of that clutter and you do this by starting with your clothes. See how you feel, you’ll either be inspired and energized to keep moving forward or you won’t, and either way, you’ll discover what’s best for you. <3 <3 <3
