This is part of our ongoing series where clients tell their personal stories. Here is one from Beth Stewart, Lisa's twin sister.
I finally got to experience what my twin sister has been preaching for the past 20 years. An organized space is an organized mind is an organized life!
I live in Los Angeles and during the past 30 years I have moved innumerable times. Each and every time, Lisa has assisted me in the move out and move in. I really did not understand the need for the edit before a move and the curation once you get into your new home. I was just used to having the movers pack up the contents and deliver the stuff to my next home.
This past several weeks was an eye opener. Lisa came to Los Angeles to help me during a difficult time. Difficult, not only due to the Pandemic, but to add stress to the situation, I had a malignant tumor removed from my kidney. When I returned home from the hospital, Lisa insisted on organizing my apartment that I had moved into this past August. I was not really paying attention to the set- up of all the spaces, closets, kitchen, bath, office. Instead my focus was on my medical issues.
As she walked through the apartment she said everything was in the wrong place. Within 3 days, Lisa removed all the contents from every closet and cabinet, rearranged everything, buying some accessories which were necessary to maximize space.
The kitchen, bathroom, linen and utility closet are now in perfect order. Not only does everything look amazing, it works for me in my new home.
Honestly now that I see what was done I truly feel the change it has made for my overall well-being. I have clarity, order, systems, and most of all peace of mind. The clutter that was behind the closed doors and cabinets, the lack of order was in fact a reflection of what was going on inside of me.
I now understand what Lisa means when she discusses the importance of organization throughout your physical space. It has a tremendous impact on your mental wellness. The dark clouds have gone and I feel the sun shining once again!
