Your house reflects your mind. . . right?

Truly, passionately and deeply do I hate my house.
It's not the size, the shape, the number of rooms. I loathe the clutter.
I am by nature a packrat. I have a hard time letting things go, emotionally, physically etc.
Seriously I have lost HALF of my kitchen counters to clutter. I have a good size kitchen but I only have about a 3ft space to work in now. I HATE IT! I don't want to cook in there, I go in get what I need and LEAVE because it's just so awful!!
I hate my bedroom. It's the one room upstairs that the kids really aren't allowed to be in so it becomes a catch all for EVERYTHING! I have three baskets of laundry to fold and put away and where are they sitting?! IN MY BEDROOM!
I just hate it. I feel uncomfortable in my own house. I am a very open, hospitable person (well I like to think so anyway) but lately I don't WANT to have people in because it's really embarrassing for me to have such a messy place to entertain.
It's time to do something about it but I've gotten to the point of not knowing where to start. I seriously need someone to come and force me to take care of this. To question every decision to keep something. I need help and I don't know how to start.
I've often heard that the state of a persons house reflects their mental state. I admit that I believe some of it is true. It's time to clean up the clutter. I've done such a huge amount of work on my mind lately and clearing out the lies and CRAP I have believed for years. I've started changing my physical state with walking and being subjected to my husband forcing me to do core exercises (it's a love/hate thing right now lol!) and starting to take care of me.
Now it's time for my surroundings. Time to clean the kitchen, and my personal sanctuary - my bedroom. Maybe I can make the external of my home, match the internal of my mind :)
