occasionally in life we come across a block that seems impossible to get through. but you know the other side will reap you many benefits. this definitely can happen with a cluttered space.
my very first clients were a successful couple living in sf.they hired to help with some accounting work and to occasionally babysit their pets. two of my favorite things...numbers and dogs. before long they asked if i would be willing to organize something in their home. well actually it wasn't in the home. it was the garage. i had never seen anything like it. when they opened the garage door my first thought was that confused me with oprah winfrey who could hire a team to declutter the space. nope it was just me. from top to bottom, front to back their was stuff! i went home in a panic. to say the space was full is an understatement. i had such a feeling of anxiety that i wasn't sure what i would or could do. my husband asked me..."how do you know where to start"? good question. and that was the first thing i thought went to take this project on. the answer...start with the first thing you see.
i reach my hand into the giant wall of goods and just grabbed the first thing i touched. and then i grabbed the next item and the next item and so on. days later after grabbing and sorting, i had reached the back of the garage!
don't let the fear of seeing all your stuff block you. as the the saying goes...every journey starts with the first step.
