Today is officially the first day of spring. When I grew up, and even in the early years of my marriage, that signaled the time for spring cleaning. Just as did my mother, I tore every room, every drawer, every closet apart and cleaned it out. I got rid of things. I organized what was there. I washed and dusted and cleaned. I keep a clean home now, but I don’t get quite that crazy anymore!
However, this makes me think of inner clutter as well as the external clutter of our lives. Is it time for you to let go of some things that are holding you back? Do you have so much old baggage that you can’t move forward with something you really want to do?
This is a good time to take the pulse of your life. Are you where you want to be? Is there something more you want to be or do? Make choices today that will get you where you want to be. Let go of attitudes, fears, old griefs and losses, things that shrink your world and your choices.
Clean inside and out
I have a good friend whose business is decluttering homes (or offices) and organizing them. She tells me that when she helps people clean out, toss and organize, her clients report that they feel lighter inside, too.
If a good spring cleaning helps you begin the process of inner decluttering, dive in. It just may be the start you need. And if you need help letting go and moving toward the good things you so yearn for, I invite you to contact me for a complimentary strategy session.
