Your home is probably your biggest investment and the most expensive asset you own.
So I want to know this: Why are you filling it up with clutter? Why are you covering up your beautiful granite countertops — that you spent days picking out — with stuff? Why are you filling up your walk-in closet — that you spent months designing — with clothes you don’t wear?
Let’s really lean in and try to understand what is behind this habit.
Here it is: Your home reflects how you feel about yourself on the inside. If there is stuff everywhere, then there is stuff everywhere in your head, and it’s hard to move forward on anything, from eating healthier to getting work done to spending more time with your family.
It’s time to make a shift and treat your home with reverence. Show it gratitude. Because your home keeps you warm and dry. Your home provides entertaining space, so you can be with friends and family. Your home gives you water.
And, you need to remember, not everyone is lucky enough to have a home.
It’s time to stop being disrespectful to your home. Get rid of the stuff, so you can clear your head.
Because when your home is free of clutter, you have the space to create deeper relationships with yourself, your loves and your life. Read that last sentence again and again.
People always worry if I judge them when I walk into their homes to organize. All I feel is compassion. Because that pile of papers on the kitchen counter that’s been there for a year, is a picture of the mess in your head.
It’s time for you to start honoring your home. Then you will have time and space to honor your yourself.
