We don’t always have to make change happen, we simply must allow it to happen and not resist it! We must learn to manage change because we cannot avoid it. So, let’s face change head on! There will never be the perfect time to take the next step, but if we don’t sow, we will not reap.
Manage your expectations, resistance or fear of change
Don’t wait to see what others may do
Don’t allow the fear of failure keep you from trying
Meet Candy H. Speight, Owner/Cert. Life Coach/Prof. Organizer – During her 32-year career at Xerox, she spent fifteen (15) years, as a Field Service Manager. Her primary role was to manage, coach and counsel people, not only in the work environment, but also from a personal perspective. As a professional organizer, for more than 10 years now, she has always wanted not only to organize various living spaces for my clients, which will always remain her passion. As we move forward, as a certified life coach, she will inspire, encourage, motivate, and empower women to be the best that they can be, by un-cluttering their lives; mind, soul and space. She has wonderfully loving, hardworking husband, Kurt, (who supported her decision to retire in order to pursue her dream), a very grown son and two beautiful grown daughters .
The steps of a good man [woman] are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Psalm 37:23 KJV

We are setting the stage to be more effective, more efficient, more productive and more prosperous. As we move forward, our focus must be on making room to grow physically, emotional, mentally and spiritually … and continue to hold fast to our dream, our purpose, our destiny.
We must keeping looking ahead. We may not be able to see the entire path, but with each step, the next step will become clearer…
“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” Philippians 3:13-14 MSG
The question is “Are we spending our time wisely?” Although we are always busy, we should set our priorities on a daily basis. We have the tendency to channel our time & energy into the things that we’d rather do, than the things that we need to do. Identify your time robbers and adjust your day accordingly. We mustn’t settle for those things that are easier but get outside of our comfort zone and meet the challenges of a life that is ever-changing.
“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the heaven: …” Ecclesiastes 3:1
2023 is rapidly approaching! We must Dream Big and Plan for Bigger… Take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed. Let’s focus on our positive accomplishments and not dwell on the negative. It is very difficult to build for Bigger without a firm foundation. We want next year to be a year of self-empowerment for us all. A year for us to have the confidence, in who will be and what we are capable of, and to take at least one step closer to our goal, dream and purpose. A dream without action is just a wish.
It’s always the right time for us to seize the opportunity to learn, grow, and be empowered to make our dreams a reality!
Close your Eyes and Visualize a Place of Peace, Harmony, and Grace…
A Place to Relax where you can Unclutter your Mind…
Create an Atmosphere that will produce Clarity and Focus …
“See More Floor”
Over the years, as a professional organizer, whenever I was in the process of decluttering a room, or space, I would always tell my clients that you want to “See More Floor”! To be honest, I never really thought a lot about. But I am currently working with a client on a HUGE organizing project and our mantra is “See More Floor”! So this is my advice to you…
Focus on one area, room or space at a time. Unfortunately, most people will start in one area, get distracted and then move to another area.
Start Small and Stay Focused!
Don’t spend hours and hours at any one time. Take regular breaks.
Now take some time to clear your mind, do something relaxing like watch TV or read a book and then come back to it. It may take longer, but your space will stay uncluttered longer and you won’t become discouraged and wore out during the process.
Remember that a whole New “Life After Clutter”, but it will require a Mindset Shift!
You may not remember, but we started this major organizing project earlier this year. My client has been out of the house for several years and now we need to sort and purge throughout the entire house as we prepare for renovations early next year. We are ready for the first of many Purple Heart pick-ups. We have over 16 huge bags of just clothes and shoes. Here are a few project update pics…
Next month, we start working on the basement. Stay tuned for more pics…
