Inspiration?

What inspires you? Sometimes we find inspiration from books, in nature, from something someone has said to us. Recently, I encouraged a client to purchase a small bookcase. She had many books stored in plastic boxes and was eager to get more settled in her home. We looked online and found a great bookcase at The Container Store. I picked up the bookcase for my client and delivered it to her home. Then together we unpacked the boxes. As we unpacked, my client carefully looked at each book. Some she decided she didn’t want any more and was ready to donate them to Goodwill, some we put on the newly installed bookcase, and some she decided could be kept on a shelf in a closet.

When our session was over my client announced that she was going to keep on working. She said that having this bookcase was inspiring her to keep on working to declutter her living space. She found her inspiration in this piece of furniture which added organization to her home. I was very proud of her and told her that she was making tremendous progress towards the organization she craves to achieve in her home.

Sometimes taking a small step, making a small change, will lead you to make bigger changes. It’s easier, for instance, to decide to organize a small space first like a drawer or a shelf. Doing one shelf or drawer – making that the way you really want it to be – can lead you to do another and then another. When you see the change in that one small space that can inspire you to make even more changes in your living environment.

Write me back and let me know what inspires you to make a change in your surroundings!

One Response to “Inspiration?”

  1. MKI Says:

    Exactly as you say – I did one drawer in the kitchen. It has a spill over effect. One section of my kids’ room. Got contagious, sort of. I think the key is, even though there’s always the urge to do more, it’s OK to stop after the first little step, and I should congratulate myself for the small accomplishment – rather than beating up myself saying “oh gosh, there’s still that and that and ….sigh…”

    I enjoy your posts – thanks for sharing your ideas!
