How to Know if You Own Your Stuff or if Your Stuff Owns You

By |2021-10-09T14:17:46-05:00October 11th, 2021|Categories: Home Organization|Tags: , , , |

How do you know if you own your stuff or if your stuff owns you? What a thought-provoking question. It’s really just your mindset at play here.  How you think and feel about your things will determine what you do with them. Your things need to be proportionate to your living spaces. Everyone has a finite amount of space and when it gets filled up, you’re left with making decisions about all these things that are taking up valuable real estate.  When you can’t let go of things, it may mean that your stuff owns you. Some things to consider [...]

A New Year, A Fresh Start

By |2021-01-12T10:06:19-06:00January 13th, 2021|Categories: Change|Tags: , , |

Here we are, once again, at the beginning of a new year. The new year promises a blank slate, a fresh start. I think everyone is happy to put 2020 behind us for many, obvious reasons. We may want to forget the challenges we encountered, but we need to remember them to learn from them and to grow. Last year, very seldom did we see or hear anything positive. That may be why everyone is talking about making a fresh start. Headlines such as COVID-19 numbers, the fallout of the economy, political elections, and so on kept us all counting [...]

4 Strategies to Lessen A Perfectionist Mindset

By |2020-11-17T13:41:13-06:00June 25th, 2020|Categories: Change|Tags: , , , |

Someone once told me that I’m a perfectionist. That didn’t resonate with me because I don’t believe that’s true.  In my mind everything that I do doesn’t have to be perfect, good enough works for me, although I do strive for excellence in the things that I do. Does that make me a perfectionist? No, it doesn’t. I don’t work at something to the point of perfection so that it causes me distress. There are however, people that do this very thing which causes unhealthy issues for them. The actual definition of a perfectionist, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary is [...]

Just In Case I May Need it Someday

“I’m keeping this just in case I may need it someday”.  I hear this a lot from clients as we are decluttering. We run across an item that they forgot they had.  They will actually tell me that they forgot they had this thing, but seem happy that they found it. It may be something that they don’t need now, but they may need it someday.  In my experience, most of the time someday never comes. It’s living in fear, the fear that you may need this thing after you let it go. This mindset may be more prevalent in [...]

Making Changes May Not be as Difficult as You Think

By |2020-11-17T13:41:19-06:00August 21st, 2019|Categories: Change|Tags: , , , , |

Some people dread making changes, others not so much.  I get it.  We get into our comfort zones especially as we age.  I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, ‘she’s set in her ways’.  There’s that comfort zone again. It’s called a comfort zone for a reason. We may not be happy in our current environment, but we know what to expect, so there’s a certain level of comfort in knowing what’s going to happen next whether we like it or not. Making changes just for the sake of change is not a good reason as far as I’m concerned. If [...]
