I just had an idea for my own television series. It would be the ultimate clutter clearing/take back your life adventure. Each episode would begin with my search for a person or family who will say yes to each of the following questions:
Are you stuck?
Are you sick of it?
Do you believe that releasing that which no longer serves you from your physical environment will free you to make the changes you desire, or are you at least willing to suspend any disbelief to try a different approach to change?
I would take the person or family out to a nice, long dinner where I (and the viewers) would begin to learn about what has them stuck. We would talk about their home and their stuff and what it would take for them to truly enjoy life again. Then we’d have a nice night of sleep, followed by a day of more intense coaching.
I would ask them to envision their home restored to an ideal state. We would mentally walk through the spaces together, crafting a vision, conceiving of new ways to find and keep balance in the stuff-to-space ratio. We would talk about company and hobbies and work and play, and how that home could host more health (physical, mental, emotional, relational, financial, spiritual, etc.). We would talk about storage and cleaning and the different types of areas necessary to accommodate the life that they desire, the life that currently feels out of reach.
