Since the beginning of the year, I have received calls from potential clients that were looking for professional organizing assistance. I truly understand what it takes for a woman (primarily) to decide that she just can not do it on her own. The clutter and disorder has become overwhelming. Unfortunately, once we have had a discussion, they have to pass it by their husbands and the husbands are just not buying it!
It is very difficult to explain that organizing is not simply cleaning. So typically, the husbands feel that the wives should be able to just clean up the mess and be done with it. But unfortunately, it is just not that easy. As we shared in my post, The Pyschology of Clutter, clutter can affect our relationships, our health, and our ability to enjoy life. Clutter can also create a sense of hopelessness, and can even contribute to depression and other mood disorders*. In all fairness, some women don’t realize the impact that clutter and disorder has on our lives either.
May I suggest to men & women alike, please allow us the opportunity to come into the home and discuss professional organizing and the services that we provide. Our initial assessment is FREE! But, believe it or not, it is a LOT more than just about the money$$$. It is about peace, order and well-being in the home. I truly believe that you will not only be able to see the difference, but you will be able to FEEL the difference. The results will be well worth the investment!
In a recent post, Healing Virtue,I suggested that possibly, clutter and disorder were standing in the way of us achieving our full potential? What’s really preventing us from walking in our destiny? As we consider, what our challenges may be, I’d like for you to ask yourself these questions:
Do you take time, just to feel good about being you?
When the last time you did something for yourself, just because it made you happy?
Do you wake up full of energy or do you wake up heavy, dreading the day?
Do you frown more than you smile?
Do you have date nights with your spouse? Do you just sit and chat about positive or negative things?
Is time with the kids always “busy” doing stuff or do you have fun when you are together and if so, how often?
Do you have friends or just acquaintances? Do you have an opportunity to confide in someone that you can trust?
Now, the ultimate question, what will it take to make a difference in our lives? Please share some of your answers or some advice that may help others in the blogsphere. I would love to create “a blog post of answers” from your contributions!
Some of my fellow bloggers had some answers, suggestions and more questions for us…
There seemed to be a fair amount of interest in “The Psychology of Clutter“. Thanks to all of you that took time to comment! It is interesting to look at a scientific perspective on the effect that clutter has on our mind, our behavior and our overall disposition. From a spiritual perspective, I have shared more than once how I believe that clutter / disorder has an affect on many aspects of our lives. Order Your Stepshas been in existence for almost two (2) years. It has been a blessing to have a steady stream of clients, although customers have come and gone. We have looked briefly at those individuals that try a professional organizer (PO) and decides not to stick with it, but there are others that have not made the call…
