As they say, there are only two things guaranteed in life: we're born and we die. And in between is the gift of time. Time is the most important gift in our lives. Time to grow and change through the ages. Time with friends through the years. Precious time with our families. Time is no fleeting thing if we honor it as the gift it is.
If you're downsizing or organizing, saving time is one of the many benefits I offer you. Imagine having dinner with friends rather than managing movers. Imagine spending time with your family rather than researching available estate sellers or moving companies. Imagine having the guidance of a professional rather than wasting time and sleepless nights wondering if you're "doing it right." Imagine knowing that one of the biggest life transitions you'll ever experience is being handled in an efficient, proficient way.
I have a special relationship with time. My two boys were ages 6 1/2 years and 7 months old when my husband died. At a time wen my children needed me most, I was consumed with renovating our new townhouse and searching madly for an estate seller. There just wasn't enough time. I still remember the overwhelming stress. It was palpable My career was suffering. And I was so consumed with "getting it done" that I couldn't see the small time savers right in front of my face.
Let my lessons be your support. Though all of you won't have my circumstance, I can assure you that we'll have shared the same questions and concerns. Will I have enough time? How should I spend my time? How can I let go of all the years past? How can I honor the precious gift of time?
Let me help you. I'm here to help you save time and gain more freedom and less stress.
The first step of moving into the future is letting go of the past. It's the key to home downsizing too. Downsizers usually fall into one of the following three categories: (1) empy nesters moving to more freedom and less stress, (2) adult children moving a parent for a myriad of reasons--usually difficult--or (3) a person going through a divorce. Then there's the the ecstatic, though apprehensive, downsizer we all hope to be. This downsizer relishes the thought of letting go of the physical weight and responsibility of the long time family home and moving on to more freedom and less stress.
I've downsized three times myself for reasons having to do with husbands...two divorces and a death. Though I say it lightly, my downsize experiences were anything but light. The grueling emotional circumstances kept me in a fog leaving preparation unobtainable. The important step that I missed was eliminating all the furniture, books, etc that wouldn't fit into the new house. Without thorough preparation, a smooth move is impossible. Boxes were strewn willy nilly throughout the new house taking weeks to unpack and much longer to organize. How could you benefit from my debacle? I offer compassion and experience that you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
I can make your downsizing or organizing experience smooth and easy. I wish I had known about professional downsizers and organizers with all three of my moves. It would have changed years of my life by making the most trying times infinitely easier.
