My name is Marie Helena, and a few months ago, I was absolutely drained, demotivated, stressed at work, stressed in my relationships or lack thereof, and super stressed about money.
Have you ever gone to bed exhausted only to wake up just as exhausted? Have you ever been stretched so thin and overwhelmed that you don't even want to move?
If you've answered yes to at least one or all (like me), then congratulations, you're adulting.
Amid the cloud of self-doubt and chronic exhaustion, during the busiest season of my career, I bought shoes. Yes, you read that right, I purchased an expensive pair of shoes.
Then the problem came, .where do I even put them?
Under the bed…..FULL
You're telling me, on top of unnecessary spending to relieve the stress of adulting; I now have to declutter and organize my room?
The cherry on the top!
I'm already drowning in life, work, and responsibilities. What the heck?! just add on decluttering. What could go wrong?
And thus started my organizing journey.
The burning question on everybody's lips and the elephant in the room...What does Maison Meu Espaço mean?
It's the marriage of two romance languages: French and Portuguese. In English, it translates to: "My House, My Space."
Those words hold a special meaning for me, especially after my journey or as I like to call it my self-discovery quest.
With no background or previous knowledge in interior design or professional organizing. (but my Pinterest badge) I set off on this quest.
I didn't know where to begin, I've failed several times, only to succeed once.
Sometimes I was determined and driven while other times, and I was miserable and defeated.
I didn't know if I was going to see this project through to the end. I had deadlines, School, managing my family, being present for my friends, and being a supportive partner to my significant other.
So when I did it, I founded my store with two core beliefs that grounded me during the journey.
- Start from where you are because no one is ever completely ready.
- On the other side of fear lies endless possibilities to create the life we want.
Maison Meu Espaço is here because you shouldn't have to feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and discouraged as you get organized.
I went through it for you, so now you can feel supported, encouraged, and liberated.
See you soon!
