Show Notes

Join us for Part 2 with Rachel Kodanaz, author of Living with Loss One Day at a Time as we move along the spectrum to Finding Peace, One Piece at a Time. In this episode, Rachel talks to us about being a family member charged with the responsibility of dealing with the possessions of a loved one who has passed, or helping folks right-size or down-size. With her can-do compassionate attitude, Rachel shares real world practical' advice, instruction and insight. She helps us reframe cleaning to clearing, and actually leaves us with a MindFULL approach to a task we all face, with curiosity and peace.

Takeaways:

  1. If you are helping someone down size or right size, and are facing a lot of “stuff” you can start the process by asking 2 questions: 
    1. Does it tell a story?
    2. Does it provide a connection?
  2. Don’t wait for someone to be sick or pass before having a conversation about the things they have that matter to them. Get curious and ask for the story behind the item.
  3. Rachel has 3 words for you: Sorting. Thinning. Repurposing
