It starts with a feeling, a longing to do something different.  The feeling grows to a strong desire.  Before you know it, you start to believe it can come true.  You do a little research, and what started as a feeling has become a fully fledged plan. It may not be easy.  You will need to be brave.   There may be times when you want to give up.  You will be tackling the unknown.  You will make new discoveries.  Your strength will grow.   In the end, you will believe in your abilities.  And it feels great.

All the best adventures have these things in common.

“Be careful going in search of adventure – it’s ridiculously easy to find” – William Least Heat-Moon

Let’s go on an adventure together, a decluttering adventure.  Who needs GPS?  We’ll make our own roadmap.  You choose the destination – a place of peace and tranquillity/greater productivity/family harmony – and the path to get you there – via the deep dark caves of the cluttered cupboard/drawer/garage/schedule – and I’ll be your guide.

Roadmap examples:

  • a good night’s sleep in a decluttered bedroom
  • host a family dinner in a decluttered dining room
  • find what you need when you need it in the hall cupboard

The journey continues tomorrow…
