It Takes a Village

Updated: Feb 17

It is rare I get called to help a family and learn nothing about their personal lives. The things of our world are all tied to some meaning tied to the current day, past or future.

Mix up a few different people and their respective things and it can be like living in a shark tank to some.

We all relate to our things and spaces differently. One of us is tidy and the other is a clutter bug. One person needs their things viewable at a glance while others prefer to lock it behind closed doors. Something special to one person means nothing to another and boundaries are crossed.

It's no wonder to me that people who don't happen to have great organizing skills get easily lost in their things. We are pulled in so many directions that if it's a weak spot in someone's life it will compound itself without attention. Unfortunately that often leads to shame. Many people don't know that home organizing is a "thing". They don't know that on the other side of town someone's cluttered home is being made calm and productive again with the help of a professional organizer. Not knowing that others are tapping into this opportunity they spiral downwards in the murky waters of a mess where they are suppose to seek solace to recharge for the word again. Sometimes a partner brings in the organizer for the other partner without their asking for one. You can imagine how delicate one must tread when a home altering element is being welcomed by one member of the family and feared by another. I know that there is no reason to have shame of a cluttered home but most take on the feelings anyway.

Juggling all this makes professional organizing a dynamic career encompassing many things never expected at the onset. That's why I liked the below comic by Kelly Kamouski who makes custom comics.

It takes a village to raise everyone of us. For this of you who don't want to reinvent the wheel and don't happen to have the organizing skills to keep your homes and offices under wraps you can get help!
