I am shocked to see how long it has been since I wrote my last blog post. I have happily devoted the past six months to creating my 10th book: Rightsize! Right Now! It's being printed as I type this so the work of getting the word out begins now.
Long before I became a professional organizer I made two moves that were difficult, exhausting and fraught with mistakes. But what a great training ground for my future! Over the past 26 years as a professional organizer unpacking clients in their new homes has been my favorite assignment of all. It's an opportunity to create a 'perfect' space for a client to begin the next phase of his or her life. It's a monumental task and it's a privilege.
The goal of any Zen Organizing tm project is to create a space that literally nurtures and supports your Soul. You came here with gifts to share and lessons to learn. The vast majority of people live in spaces that sabotage them at every turn. Chaos adds a layer of difficulty to everything you wish to accomplish.
If you or someone you care about, work with, are related to or love has a move on the horizon I hope you will pre-order a copy from your favorite retailer now. The book will ship in March and be available this April. My birthday is Monday the 6th of April so it feels like this is my birthday present. I hope you'll help me celebrate. I promise that the 8 week plan I present will enable you to make a smooth transition from one residence to another. In addition to practical tips I present ways for you to take care of yourself. It's a tough slog and from the simple (a candle and a bubble bath) to the more profound (meditation and yoga) I've got you covered. You'll move into your new home healthy and happy rather than exhausted and sick.
