Clean Your Room, Change Your World!
Jordan B. Peterson, Ph.D. said, “My sense is that if you want to change the world, you start from yourself and work outward because you build your competence that way.” We do so much for the outside world and other people that it becomes easy to forget about our personal space, our sanctuary we always come back to. It became evident to me on how neglectful I began treating my living space when I experienced depression a few years ago. The saddest I got – the more neglectful my own “little corner of the world” became. My living space became a manifestation of my internal state, creating a vicious cycle of incompetence, frustration, and inability to make a change. As I was gaining more awareness with the help of my therapist, I was able to make incremental changes to my room that, in turn, instilled feelings of accomplishment, willpower, and lightness inside and out. Based on my personal experience I know that it could be very challenging to do it alone. And I would like to be there for you to support you in your accomplishments and growth. While our understanding of “order” could be different (say, artists’ spaces that may seem messy), I offer this work as a deeper understanding of how your space represents your inner world and if it causes any discomfort. Only then, we will make the appropriate changes together! It has been one of my longstanding dreams to connect two things that I am equally passionate about organizational and interior design skills for therapeutic purposes.
