Space…Your Final Frontier. Are you bogged down by clutter? Is your desk a disaster? Does your home make you feel like a hoarder? Are you plagued by ‘fuzzy’ thinking? Do you feel constantly overwhelmed or even depressed by the clutter in your life? If this rings true for you, it time to declutter your life and gain some emotional freedom. Take the first step: MAKE THE DECISION TO GET RID OF YOUR CLUTTER. Now, make a quiet time for yourself to: Think, Reflect, Fix Think: What do you want to make room for in your life?
