I define intentional living as living in line with your authentic self and values. Living simply, sustainably and surrounded by only those things that bring you joy and lift you up to the highest version of yourself.
Hi I’m Mary Lochert, Director of The Intentional Organiser, Professional Organiser and Executive Functioning Coach, tea drinker, cat lover and old soul!
I live with my partner Jack, step-daughter Darcy, daughter Pearl and new bubba Marley not too far from the beach. Oh, and I can't forget to mention Blossom (the dog) and Mr. Boy and Ruby (the cats).
I love walk on the beach and the odd cold dip in the sea, my veggie patch and indoor plant collection and I love love my organised jar pantry. For many years I dreamed of a slow simple lifestyle without clutter, stress and chronic illness and now I am living it! And it all started with decluttering and organisation...
People often ask me how I became a professional organiser (PO) and coach. Truth is it has always been in my blood. As a child I used to relish taking care of the family's treasures; carefully wiping and arranging my mum’s antique teacups, alphabetising our novels and lovingly organising our family photo albums.
Decluttering and organisation has the potential to change your life. My own personal transformation began in 2015 when my life took a surprising and stressful detour; I unexpectedly became a solo parent to my eight month old baby. This wasn't where I saw my life going - I was in an emotional, physical and financial mess; wrecked with anxiety and overwhelm (later on I learned that my undiagnosed ASD/ADHD were also huge contributing factors to my overwhelm but that is another story you can read about here).
I began to search for a way to pull my life back together, conquer the overwhelm and gain a sense of control and peace in my life. I found inspiration in quite unexpected way, in a small book called ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up’ by Japanese organising guru Marie Kondo.
I looked around me at the messy, cluttered and uninspiring space I inhabited and longed for freedom. I had always been an organised person, but I had never asked myself what I really truly gave me joy in my space or had given myself permission to let go of what no longer served me.
Decluttering my home and getting rid of over 60% of my belongings was a cathartic process that truly was life changing. Underneath all the clutter, I found the real me and a journey of healing and progressing towards a life that fully aligned with my needs, values and dreams began.
I want this for you. The life-changing freedom of intentional living.
