Recently, I had to face some hard facts. During the past three years, ever since my mother died, I’d become a pack rat — worse than I’ve ever been. And all those mounds of papers, decorative objects and various doodads were dragging me down. Uh-oh, it was time to get organized!
The words, “How Organized are You?” on a thermometer remind you that now is the moment to get things in order, straighten out your mess, and create a process or system to keep things tidy, clean and neat.
Recently, it hit me that I’ve been stuck in an organizational predicament. All that STUFF has been keeping me stuck and holding me back from my cherished goal, which is to help exasperated sugar junkies and carb addicts break free of their addictions and Crush their Crazy Cravings™ (as I put it).
Sure, I’d made lots of progress. For three years, I’ve spent many hours — often with the help of others — wading through, saving or tossing thousands of Mom’s photos, mementos and many other things that I’d stored in four places in three cities.
But for the last two months, as both the anniversary of Mom’s death and the Jewish High Holidays drew near, I ramped up my organizing. I’ve become determined to clear my massive amounts of clutter.
Why get organized? Because clearing clutter is freeing, and it moves you forward.
You reap many benefits from getting organized and clearing clutter.
For many of you, the holiday season is filled with anxiety, stress, financial worries, loneliness, family arguments, gift-giving concerns, many irritations (from flight delays to family squabbles) and many tasty temptations — mostly high-calorie and sugar-filled that you find hard to resist but that pack on the pounds, sap your energy and ruin your moods.
In fact, many people leave the holiday season feeling drained, deprived and 5 or more pounds heavier.
But I'm here to help you lose weight, get organized, become more organized, joyful, calm down, look younger, plan a vision for the future, attract abundance, and much more.
In other words, my goal is to bring you peace of mind, happiness, and super-simple cool tools to start using so you can have a Sweeter Holiday Season.
Therefore, it's my pleasure to give you three special gifts.
All three gifts were the opening programs in last year's much-acclaimed Sweeter Holiday Season, which featured a whopping 38 programs featuring a Who's Who in the fields of health, wealth, fitness, personal empowerment, feng shui, organizing, happiness, Law of Attraction, and so much more.
So here are the gifts you're getting now:
