LET GO – MOVE ON Clutterfree Life Transitions

Declutter & Change Life Coach
Jan 2018 – Present, Sydney, Australia

Decluttering can be a very positive and productive experience, an opportunity to learn about yourself and your values.
In a life-transition situation, decluttering enables you to let go of anything – physical and emotional clutter – that relates to the past and no longer serves you. It frees you up – without the ballast from the past you can move on with our life, with lightness.

However, to make this work, you need a systematic approach, – the 5-Step ‘Let go – Move on’ program has been developed to guide your through the change process

Fabric painting is a very relaxing, creative and productive activity … and it is not difficult, – you don’t need any special qualification or talent to create colourful and unique designs on clothing and other fabric items.
