Do you want to make this year, the year of positive change?
If you share my vision, want to live your best life and be the best you, you can be without all the excess, please follow my journey. I would love to hear from you about the changes you would like to make in your own life and how you're overcoming your hurdles and continuing to move forward.
I've personally found that there are three key factors in living your best life, keeping it balanced and getting out from under all the clutter a.k.a. all the unimportant stuff. For many of us, our lives our full of stuff we don't need, too much stress and busy schedules yet, lots of wasted time.
I've learned, you need to look within, have the right outlook and become disciplined to consistently work towards your goals, in order to achieve.
Take an Honest Look Within
You won’t make any headway with your desire to change unless you take an honest look at the patterns that created them. Believe it or not, even clearing your physical clutter starts from within. It’s an inside job that demands you address your emotions first. You can’t make a dent in reducing your stress, your packed schedule and your physical stuff until you feel it is safe to let go.
Change Your Mindset
Clearing the unnecessary from your life is a process. It isn’t something you simply fit into your schedule. It’s a lifelong journey. It will ebb and flow. You will have your ups and downs and your journey will be a very personal one as it’s is all about letting go of not only material things but also thoughts that have been getting in the way of living your best life.
Surround yourself with positive people, seek out inspiration and remain open to change.
Positive change won’t last if you rush it. Clearing yourself of old habits and behaviors won’t happen overnight. Slow and consistent effort is the key to finding the life you want under all that physical and emotional clutter.
Do some soul searching. What are your values and your priorities? Be honest with yourself. Take some time to be mindful about where you've come from, where you'll be if you don't make some changes and where you CAN go. The possibilities are endless. Then make a plan, set some manageable goals and take it one step at a time.
Believe in yourself. You CAN get out from under, LIVE your BEST life, and on your terms. You just need to make the decision to get started and keep moving forward.
Did you make New Year's Resolutions?
Instead of making a set list of resolutions, my personal game plan is to focus more on what makes me happy and to take the time to nourish my soul. I am simply aiming to be the best I can be and grow new, more positive habits throughout the coming year.
As a professional organizer and life coach, I help others clear and declutter their lives but unfortunately I’ve put my own needs on the back burner in order to help others. I know I can’t be of good service to others unless I take care of myself first. So, in an effort to help others live their best lives, I’m walking the talk myself and focusing on clearing the unimportant so the important can speak take centre stage.
This year I want to…
LIVE INTENTIONALLY and be mindful of how I am spending my time.
SLOW DOWN my pace of life while continuing to move forward.
STAY OPEN to new experiences, information and ways of doing things.
LEARN TO LET GO as I peel away the layers of my former self (internally and externally) that are no longer serving me.
BE THE MOMENT more often. In other words, I want to take the time to stop, feel and enjoy the present moment.
KEEP THINGS SIMPLE instead of allowing myself to become overwhelmed and bogged down with details, I want to simplify my surroundings and daily routines.
I welcome you to do the same in your own life. I honestly believe there's much joy to be found in living an intentional life.
