Today: Exquisite. Perfect. Wonderful.

What an inspiration!

I introduce the incredibly talented and youthful Stephen Jepson.

I wanna change the world.
I wanna help people not be so fall-y-down-y.
I wanna help people be better; live longer, healthier, richer lives.

Be bold in your life choices,
because it's just gonna make your life richer.

It makes you feel just absolutely juiced & jazzed & revitalized.

There is beauty in almost every day in almost every person's life and all you have to do is look for it. It's there to see and find.

HOORAY!!! One year old TODAY!!!

One year ago today Clear the CRAP was born.

I decided it was time to declutter my home and set myself a
100 Day Challenge to clear out my Crap.
Little did I know that I had embarked on a
life-altering journey of self discovery.

The Challenge was partially captured in 62 Blog Posts and Supported by a
Facebook Page which currently has over 3000 fans.

Clear the CRAP developed a life of it's own and evolved into a process for healing,
provider of education & support and a pathway to happiness.

It has taken me on a most extraordinary adventure,
led me to discover my purpose in life
and enabled me to find joy in every thing that I do.

It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed so quickly,
yet I feel the achievements and personal progress I made
is equivalent to a lifetime of discoveries.

I have reviewed my past
and released it's hold on me.

I have come to terms with my future
and no longer fear or worry about it.

I have discovered how to be in the NOW
and realise it is the only place to be free.


As I moved through the 100 Day Clear the CRAP Challenge, and progressively reviewed the things that I was holding on to, a pattern began to emerge. I began to naturally flow into a process of reorganising the physical Crap that was cluttering my space and simultaneously reviewing my emotional attachment to those items and the personal history involved with it. Releasing the physical Crap coordinated with releasing the emotional and mental Crap.

I developed the "Daily Clear the CRAP Worksheet" which formalised this method that I organically discovered, so that I may invite others to do the same.

40 years of learning and developing into the complicated social, emotional and physical being that I am, has been undone by the Clear the CRAP Process.

It has given me the ability to view my life, the lives of others, and LIFE as a universal concept in a completely new way.

I am a different person. I look at things in a different way now. Clear the CRAP has transformed me into a better person and allowed me to realise my dreams.

Yet it is an ongoing evolution.

I have concluded that Clear the CRAP
is a continual tool for transformation.

The cupboard that I tidied up 6 months ago needs tidying again. There are parts of my surroundings that have not yet been decluttered at all. (That deep, dark shelf above the fridge, where all the bits are thrown to hide them away, keeps calling to me, "Clear the Crap away from me... Please... Clear me out now..... Heeeellllppp ")

And just when I think I have cleared out a painful memory from the past, that led me to behave a certain way now, and I feel that I have grown and moved on from it.... Life experience will present a new challenge before me, that may mean I have to go back and review that memory again.

I may never be totally free from the Crap, but the Clear the CRAP Process provides me with the tools and a sensibility to understand, grow and move on from my Crap.

I eagerly anticipate taking Clear the CRAP to the next level, where I can formally share the gifts I have received from it with others.

I look forward to developing a Clear the CRAP Training Program, where participants will be guided and supported through taking their own 100 Day Clear the CRAP Challenge.

I will be developing an "Off the Wall", Words for Inspiration Product, designed to enthuse.

And then there's always the dream of a Clear the CRAP Book, to fill in the spaces that the periodic blog posts did not capture.

I thank you Clear the CRAP for giving me...

A way to discover who I really am

Profound emotional healing

Connection with community, and

A pathway to discovering the joy of life

HAPPY 1st Birthday


SUMMER SERIES: Clear you own Crap - I'm not doing it for you!

I am here to inspire, motivate and empower people to find their own way to organise themselves. The power you will find within when you Clear YOUR Crap, by yourself, will bring on an incredible transformation.

I am continually astounded by the people who, upon first contact with Clear the CRAP assume that it is a professional organising company. Only yesterday when I was investigating an opportunity to write a guest blog, I was met with a response along the lines of "Sure, you could write an article about organising"!

Um... did you read the blog?

If you did, you would see that I'm not here to help you put your things into neat little piles with lables. I'm not here to help you to implement a paperwork management system for your office, or teach you where to put the stuff on your laundry shelves.

I am here to help you find a way so you can do it yourself.

Professional organising was something that crossed my mind back on Day 22 of the 100 day Clear the CRAP Challenge, but I soon dismissed it!!!

You don't need anyone else to sort out your stuff for you. That's not going to help you to get to the root of why you have so much stuff and are so disorganised in the first place. You need to want to clean it up yourself. You need to have the drive to make a positive change in your life, clear your Crap, create the space to allow in the change that you want in your life, and move forward.

Having someone else provide you with a list of the top 10 things to keep in your stationary drawer, or a whiz bang new cupboard with colour coded sections for organising your Crap, will not unearth the causes of why you sought out an organising person in the first place. You need to go deeper. You need to stop.


Take the time to look at your life.

Look at yourself.

Search within to discover what it was that made you this way.

Why do you fear what you fear.

Face it.

You will not be able to reorganise yourself overnight, but with a commitment to doing the inner work, you can find your own answers within. A professional organiser cannot do this for you.

I am here to provide guidance, inspiration and support as you embark on your own journey to find clarity. I can suggest where to place your foot, in order to travel toward finding yourself and your own inner truth, but it's up to you to take the step.

Professional organisers will help certain people in certain circumstances, but Clear the CRAP is about self-discovery, healing and growth. It provides a pathway to finding your peace and happiness in life.


SUMMER SERIES: 2012 - Where Will You Go?

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!


A year for change

A year for expansion

A year to step out of your comfort zone and embrace opportunity

Embrace your freedom.

Trust in the flow

And be at your greatest

If you're a Dr Seuss fan like me, you will love this video. It inspired me to start the Clear the CRAP Summer Series, a concept that I had been toying with for a while.... ever since I stopped blogging on day 90 of the 100 day Clear the CRAP Challenge - but more on that later...

Mental Note: Find out more about the Burning Man Festival.

I love the individuality, self-expression, colour and aliveness of the people in this video. I love how they have no hang-ups about what others think of them and happily go about doing what they do, in their own way, in joy.

Thanks to the Crap-Clearing of 2011, this is also me in 2012: Individual, Expressive, Alive. Moving with colour and joy, in my own way.

Is it you?
Have you done the work to sort out your hang-ups and find your happy?

As the famous adage goes:

If you always do what you've always done
You'll always get what you've always got.

What is it that makes some people believe that they can go on doing the same thing and thinking the same way, and expecting a different result?

It's all about not living in fear of change, Baby!! And I should know! I have always stressed out in the face of change... but the times are a-changing. (More about change, Dr Seuss and The Places You'll Go Here)

I'm ready to leave behind the CRAP of the past and set my sights on some new places...

Oh, The Places You'll Go ....

You Coming????
