Permission Granted!!

This is it. I'm going to start a new way of life-today. Oh, no, not today because I have to do something else. But definitely tomorrow; yes, tomorrow is the day I'll start. Oops, can't start tomorrow because I have that other thing to do, but definitely the next day-no doubt-the next day. No, on second thought it's the end of the week, and the weekend is here. You know, that's not the best time to start this new life plan, but I'll definitely start on Monday. Yes, Monday is the perfect time to start. But…

Does this sound familiar? Perhaps like one of the "internal conversations" you experienced? You know the type-no one else is present, just you and yet you still manage to talk yourself out of doing things that will benefit your life? Sometimes, just starting is the hardest part. It doesn't have to be. Now is the time to reorganize your internal language. Now is the time to say that procrastination cannot reside in your life for more than a day (One Day Rule™). Now is the time to say that it's okay to start, perhaps stall and maybe even experience a successful failure, but not starting is not an option. The fear of beginning a new thing will no longer be a part of your life. Give yourself permission to start.

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
