Clutter Blindness (blinded by the clutter)

     Can you see?      Can you see?     Can you see?  The clutter that is forming around you! We have been blessed with a wonderful gift of sight.  The ability to see what surrounds us daily!
If we refuse the gift of viewing and noticing what is in front of us, how can we notice what God has planned for us?
 Clutter can rob you of your dreams. It CAUSES you to use it as a shield to BLOCK pain, depression, disappointment and so many more. We created this thing, this beast, called Clutter.  We have given it so much power! We feed it, we nurture it, and we supply its every need.  Wow!  
   We keep adding things to our schedules, knowing that we must manage the clutter that surrounds us! Clutter will not disappear on its own, unless you make the time. As, an Organizer, I have express to all my existing clients and new clients, that you can not have organization without time management.  You have to assign the time to keep things organized.  This is no different from being an "A" student.  You have to study to maintain that "A". Another example would be- being health, you must eat right, exercise, surround yourself with positive people and things. Also, in an organized home, you must purge on a regular bases. Why? Because your space doesn't grow as you keep adding things! So, try not to get too attached to the material things and that will make it much easier to let go when it's not being used. This is a hard one for a lot of people. But, none of these things come without working hard at it. The more you do it on a consistence bases, the more you will become familiar and comfortable with doing it daily.
 I truly believe that people have a choice to be blinded or to see what is in front of them. But clutter homes, are from individuals not wanting to see or deal with what needs to be dealt with.
So, if this applies to you, the reader! You're in control and you have the power to change things and this situation.  Please don't let the Clutter blind you and rob you of your dreams or completing what you started! Ask for help! There are over 500 Professional Organizers in this country. Don't wait!  Get help, so you can see the beautiful things again!
