Scared of living your dreams?

Scared of Living Your Dreams? Five top tips to let go of the clutter and start living your dreams

Too often we don’t live our dreams, reasons vary from lack of time, money, energy or we are scared to step outside our comfort zone; and worry what others might think or say.

On my recent trip to Europe I fulfilled so many of my life’s visions, and in some instances, I stepped well and truly outside my comfort zone. The pleasure for me was removing doubt, fear and anxiety each and every time I conquered things, that in the past had stopped me from living my dreams.

Our clutter is not always physical stuff

We have a knack of building walls around us to keep out the scary stuff, holding in the self-doubt, self-loathing and sadly we are missing out of some the really good stuff.

While traveling through the UK, France and Switzerland it was a joy to witness so many people living their dreams. There was one in particular occasion that touch my heart, it was on the day I Continue reading

Stuff the kids don't want

From latch key kids to Allan key kids, they don’t want your STUFF!

7 top tips on how to get over the fact that the kids do not want your stuff

The baby boomers and Gen X’ers started out as latch key kids, letting themselves into the house after school, making decisions and choices from a young age. One of the most common statements I hear at my workshops is “The kids don’t want my stuff”

Let’s be honest here, why should they want your stuff, it is not embedded in their DNA that they are going to follow the same fashions as you do. I know that may seem tough, but it is true. Personally, I love the pieces from my family, they carry stories which fill in the blanks or give me a greater appreciate for how they worked hard to make or purchase these things.

We go through a range of feelings- hurt, embarrassed, angry, confused, deflated, bruised ego, to overwhelmed with fear of what to do with this STUFF!

It’s time to pick yourself up, brush off your bruised ego and rethink life beyond this stuff. Continue reading

Sort and organise at arm’s lenght

Hold onto your hat, this is going to shock you!!

We don’t always need to declutter, sometimes we just need to sort and organise!!!!

Some of you will breathe a sigh of relief, the role of a Professional Organiser not to throw STUFF out, it is to help you simplify life, making it easy to find what you want when you want it.

Life is too short to be looking for STUFF ~Tanya Lewis

The simply way to sort the good from the bad and ugly is to start small and work one draw or one shelf at a time, do not pull everything out of the wardrobe, linen press or god forbid the garage. The common response from that method is screaming, rocking backwards and forward or people lying in the fetal position. I cannot stress that enough, please start small. Continue reading
