My House is a Home Now

Finally Love YourselfDear FlyLady,

Thank you so much for all that you do. I just wanted to share my story of how you helped in changing my life.

As a child, I grew up in a very clean and orderly house, but at the age of 10 I became a victim of abuse and that was the beginning of the messy clutter of my life. At first, having a messy room was used as a way to feel like I was protecting myself. Later it became a wall to prevent myself from getting hurt even though the abuser in my life was gone.

After getting married to my high school sweetheart, I thought that the wall would come down, and in some ways it had, but after having this wall for 13 years I was afraid of taking it down completely.

20 years since the abuse, I now have a beautiful house, two even more beautiful children, and yes, the same sweet husband who has helped me to see the light and break down that wall. Now that I was ready to clean up my act and let go of my past by letting go of my junk, I turned to the internet to find the tools to help me. That’s when I found you!

Start by gettingĀ my sink shiny? I can do that. Get dressed every day down to the shoes? No problem. Smile? Hey, that really is contagious!

I’ve been following your methods for almost 2 years now, and my house is nearly finished being decluttered and organized. I’ve only the master bedroom to finish, and in my mind I have come full circle. My house is a home now, it is a safe place in my heart and mind, it is a place everyone wants to be in and it’s all because of the tools and encouragement you have given me.

Finally Loving Myself in Texas
