I’m 16 years old. My parents had divorced a few years earlier, mainly because of my father’s alcoholism. And now, my mother is marrying another alcoholic, and my father, who I felt close to, moves 1,500 miles away. I feel lost and my self-worth drops. I’m thinking: Does anyone care about me? (By the way, I never saw my dad again, and he died when I was 42.) My new step father dies of a heart attack a year after my mother marries him. So, I meet an older guy, who I’m thinking will give me the security I need, and we get married when I’m 19.
Now I’m 28 years old. By then, I had three horrendous pregnancy losses: A stillborn girl at eight months, then an ectopic pregnancy that required surgery, and a premature baby that didn’t survive. My husband cheats on me with a prostitute and is addicted to various sedatives, and threatens me with bodily harm, so I get a restraining order and a divorce. I had moved to a state where I didn’t have friends, I had lost my children, and at the age of 28, I feel like my life is OVER.
Sometimes the very thing that we want scares the crap out of us. Why is that, and what do you do about it?
When we go after our dream, we begin to find ourselves in uncharted territory. And it can get very scary, very quickly, and this will stop us in our tracks.
As we begin to move out of our “comfort zone” to what we thought we actually wanted, we can begin to question why we ever made that decision. Click for more below, and watch the video where I talk about this.

And it’s not just the physical clutter. Our memories shrouded in leftover emotions from past experiences will keep us stuck in a state of not moving forward in our life as well.
Seeing the physical clutter works like an energetic block, and the emotional clutter stops it up even further.
Here are tips to declutter on both a physical and mental/emotional level.
We are born connected to abundance…
I recall when I was considering taking the giant leap from the J.O.B. I became keenly aware of the co-workers around me who were so miserable that it was affecting their health.
You know: The ones who have an excel spreadsheet that automatically calculates how many days are left before retirement. And believe me, some of them had a long way to go, even though they were looking a bit rough around the edges.
Not to be rude, but stress does take its toll.
