The Home Reboot: Where it All Goes

I worked with a woman whose home was a haphazard jumble of everything she owned. Nothing appeared to have a permanent place. It was as if she’d just unpacked, and where it landed when she took it out of the box is where it stayed.

I opened kitchen cabinets to see if there was stash-space for the food, appliances and random items across the counters and dining table. They were practically empty.

I’ve met homeowners who like to see everything they own, whether it’s pretty or not. They say they forget where it is and won’t use it unless it’s out where they’ll see it. That wasn’t her story. She admitted that she just had no clue where things went. She also said that her mother was this way, too.

I get it. We all bring something of value to the play-date; this wasn’t her thing. Fortunately, it’s mine!

We began to work together in her kitchen. I use the kitchen to teach my simple principles and intuitive concepts, because I’ve found that the kitchen is a microcosm of the entire house. As the heart of the home, once it’s pumping normally, the rest will follow suit. Once we completed her Kitchen Reboot, I showed her how everything we’d just done could be applied to her entire house. She went from shame to empowered in less than two hours.

Setting up an entire home isn’t rocket science, but it can sure feel foreign and intimidating when you don’t have the knowledge. Many of us learn it from a parent, or have a knack—even a passion—for crafting a home. The rest of us have to seek out teachers. Fortunately, it’s nowhere near as hard to learn as rocket science.

Many people are reluctant to get help because they fear they won’t be able to maintain the results. More good news: my concepts are both intuitive and logical. Whichever side of the brain you lean on, my tools will work if you’re open to learning. I mean, you do have to be willing to let go of the old shame-story that says you can’t do this. By the time we’re done, you won’t remember what your issue was in the first place.

This isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. We’re not cars. We each have our “funny little noise” under the hood that needs to be addressed. Fortunately, I know what to listen for!

I’ve often said that we fear doing things we’ve never done before, because it’s new. Good news: it’s only new ONCE, the first time. After that, you can’t unknow what you now know.

Don’t suffer alone and in silence within the four walls of your giant, very expensive storage unit. Get help now. From a Kitchen Reboot to the Home Reboot, this decision will affect the rest of your life. Isn’t it time? Give me a call and let’s DO this!
