95% of my clients tell me they’re stuck because they feel overwhelmed. They DO want to sort it, often CAN sort it, but just don’t know where to start. I believe clutter often represents decisions that haven’t been made, showing itself in the form of all that stuff sitting in your front/back/spare room, bedroom or garage.
The greatest barriers to your desire to sort it out are your own thoughts and beliefs, some of them unconscious. My mum always told me to tidy my room (I’m sure most mums do), as it was a reflection of my mind. She had a point. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. Is that hard to hear?
You want to be free from the nag sitting on your shoulder saying: ‘Sort this out! You’re shameful and no good for letting things get like this!’ Not only that, on a practical day-to-day level, life’s probably getting tougher. You keep losing things, your muddled paperwork might make you behind on your tax return and you may not be setting your kids the best example you’d like. You generally feel tired, drained and unwell, wondering ‘Why am I living my precious life like this?’ This has to stop.
The good news is you don’t need years of therapy to sort out your inner world and piles of clutter; you just need to start clearing it – NOW! I guarantee having a clear and beautifully organised home lifts a great weight off your shoulders and gives you a shining, smiling presence.
