September 2017 was the first September since 1993 I did not enter a classroom to teach. In Klutter Koach terms, I decluttered the teaching profession from my life. I had been wanting to do this for years and after last school year “did me in” I “retired”. I am now happily working a job that doesn’t involve lesson planning, discipline, backtalk, or projectile objects.
Whether something is physical or intangible, once decluttered from your life the feeling after it is gone is extremely freeing. The space that is created is filled with new positive energy. Granted, it may take adjustment to get used to a new routine or empty space, but well worth it.
While I can’t declutter stressful situations from anyone’s life, I can remove unwanted items. Once a client has decided to let go of excess, unused, or unwanted items, out they go. They get re-homed with the concept of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”(of course anything truly trash is disposed of or recycled).
This evening, instead of stressfully writing lesson plans, grading papers, or dreading the next work day, my evening was spent joyfully contacting potential clothing recipients. A friend chose to declutter some clothes one of her children had outgrown. Though not a client, she knew my passion for re-homing items. Many bags of clothes will soon be distributed throughout the community and multiple families will benefit from her decluttering efforts.
If you are in R/BS and want to schedule a 2 or 3 hour decluttering / organizing session, contact me. While you may dread the task and avoid doing it alone, I will enthusistically, energetically, and non-judgementally work with you side by side to tackle your declutering and home organizing projects.
