Your Clutter Free Journey
Take the first step on your Clutter Free Journey to living a beautiful, clutter free life! On your journey, you will examine your relationship with the stuff in your life and it's impact on your overall well-being. You will learn to make choices over what you invite into your home. The way we feel inside is directly reflected in our living spaces. In turn, our living spaces affect our internal well-being. By making small, steady changes in our living environment, we can change how we feel inside and make our homes a reflection of what is important to us.

Do you ever have those dreams where you realize you forgot to get dressed and you are in front of a group of people? What an awful, vulnerable feeling this is! Dream interpretation might tell you that it is your unconscious telling you that you are insecure about yourself or worried about the real you being exposed.
Sometimes our “stuff “can provide us with a false sense of security. Much like someone who overeats to mask their feelings, holding on to excess can be symptom of other issues in our lives. Not wanting to let go of something that is completely useless and meaningless to us is related to our own insecurities. Figuring out “why” we want to keep something and what need we are trying to fill is vital to being able to really declutter and move forward.
Do you see any pattens with your clutter? Are certain objects harder to part with even though you don't really like them? Does clutter serve a useful purpose in your life? Can you think of a healthier alternative to get these needs met?
