“I can’t throw that away!”

Sound familiar? For some people the very idea of letting go of an item is very difficult and even emotional. As an Organizer I often hear my clients thank me for helping by “giving permission” to donate or discard things. Sometimes it’s compassionate coaching, and using guiding questions to help the client make the decision. Other times it’s tough love… setting up rules or parameters for what stays and what goes!  The beauty of the process and working together is when the noticeable shift occurs and once the client sees and literally feels less burdened by their stuff, they use that new energy and momentum to continue the process even when I am not there with them! I love it and so do they.
