Books by Regina Lark
This book is about how a cluttered closet is often a manifestation of a cluttered mind. It’s about understanding the relationship between the stuff in our head, and what’s under our bed. And finally, it’s about how changing your thinking about how you feel about yourself can open the space in your head so that you can, once and for all, deal with the stuff that’s been under your bed for a long, long time.
