Why Space For You?

I know you are all wondering how I came up with a name like “Space For You” for my business.  Well, I was working with a client whose place was so crowded with things that she just had this little space for herself.  She had a chair to sit on and a very busy end  table which held her coffee and cigarettes.  She had a little space on the couch where she  slept as her bed and mattress was always in some sort of disarray.  She had to move a pile of items to allow me to sit down usually on a rocking chair.
Whenever this client had to get up to do or get something (or look for something which was often the case) she was at risk of falling or having things fall on her. In fact, she did have some injuries at one time from tripping and falling over her things.  She was very creative and had very big ideas and dreams of how she wanted her place to look.
So, I would work with her and ask questions like “what is realistic right now”, “what do  you want for yourself”, “how do you want your life to look” , “how do you make space for you” and “what would you like to make space for”.  After awhile she was able to make some small changes.
She was holding on to some bikes for her grandchildren who she did not see and one day there were some children playing in the courtyard in front of her apartment and she decided to give the bicycles to these children. That was a such a huge step for her and I
felt very proud of her for being able to do that. What a feeling of freedom for this client to be able to let go of those bikes.  I really feel that we need to be able to put ourselves first and figure out what it is that makes us happy and comfortable. What kind of space do we want to create for ourselves and how can we make that space work for us? How can we let go of the past with grace and sometimes the dreams for the future that hold us back? This client inspired me to continue in this work to help others who were in similar situations.  I would love to help you to find that same space for yourself.

    Thanks for commenting Janet – That was just really one of the reasons for getting into this work but definitely helped me come up with my business name. That sure feels like a long time ago. Hey, maybe that’s a good question for the Blogging Group?

  3. That’s a great business name, and a nice story behind the name. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you so much Nancy – It was interesting because I didn’t even really think about the name and this name came to me and I thought that is the one – I really appreciate your comment.
