home is where the heart is [positive space living - home organizing for body, mind + spirit]

home is where the heart is – reconnect heart + home

There has been a lot happening behind the scenes at positive space living.  I’ve been intentionally quiet for the past few months, practicing self-care and releasing what no longer serves me to reconnect heart + home.

The services I offer as a professional organizer are deeply connected with my values and how I consciously curate my own home.

“You teach best what you most need to learn.”

I love this quote by author Richard Bach; the words express why my joy for helping others with home organization continues to thrive.  I am on this journey with you.

 

Today, I’m so happy to share the new web home of positive space living – home organizing for body, mind + spirit.

The website redesign is a reflection of the professional development and personal journey I’ve been on – to reconnect heart + home.

reconnecting to creativity

I’ve explored the language of HTML and CSS through courses with Ladies Learning Code, a not-for-profit initiative that promotes digital literacy for women and youth.  It’s been so much fun to play with code and practice my new skills for the refreshed positive space living website.

reconnecting to vulnerability

Recently I completed an advanced education program with the Institute for Challenging Disorganization.  The training focused on communication skills – in writing, speaking, coaching, and leadership – that helped me to embrace vulnerability and share my voice.  I’m looking forward to stretching my comfort zone further in the coming weeks.

reconnecting heart + home

Here at home we’ve been helping our two little birds learn to fly from the nest; our son has started school in junior kindergarten and our daughter is now enjoying senior kindergarten.  Becoming parents has impacted all aspects of our home and life.  Each season we witness developmental growth, and our kids’ stuff continually changes to support their evolving needs.  Editing and re-organizing is an ongoing process when you live with children!

When clients say to me, “Your house must be SO organized,” I hear curiosity mixed with illusions of perfection.  I smile and share, “I’m on this journey with you.”

Our home doesn’t look like a magazine layout, nor would I want it to be.  We are mindful to honour our values, to be conscious consumers and model positive habits for our children.  Our home feels lived in, it’s authentic – a beautiful reflection of our family.

Home is where the heart is.

Our home is more than a physical structure; Home is our support structure for daily living.  Imagine your home as a sacred space, a sanctuary from the outside world where you nurture body, mind + spirit.  Home will uniquely look, feel, and sound different for each of us.

What qualities create home for you?

For me, home is deeply connected with the people I love: the warm comfort of a blanket hand-crocheted by my grandmother, sharing good food with family and friends, the joyful sounds of laughter and impromptu dancing with our kids.

What makes your space feel like home?

I would love to hear from you in the comments below.

Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your experience of home!
