Spring Cleaning your Life


Spring is….
A time of renewal and revival…..a time for planting and pruning.
A time for cleaning out the cupboards and clutter and dusting out the cobwebs.
Every year, we look forward to the springtime, when the weather is warmer, the days are longer and everything is brighter. Colorful blooms replace the dreariness and withered twigs of winter.

Every one is happy…..

Some of you have already started with the spring cleaning, I’ll bet.
It got me thinking…we do this spring cleaning annually but how often do we spring clean our lives or maybe just our minds.
Are there any cobwebs in your mind …leftovers from those days of “Great Expectations” that did not materialize.? Get that duster out and vigourously brush them away. They serve no useful purpose in your life…they just take up space.
What about the clutter of grudges held maybe from childhood, and thoughts of people who you think don’t like you, and all those labels you place on yourself, like “I’m too fat”. Yes, these too can clutter your mind leaving no space for new and positive thoughts, and resulting in some kind of mental paralysis.
Wipe out those unforgiving thoughts, burn the anger and recycle the garbage that accumulates there without permission.

Now is the time to get rid of that clutter …toss it all out….and open yourself to new possibilities, new opportunities and new beginnings. Don’t just plant spring blossoms in your garden but plant them in your mind and in your life.
Plant some seeds and watch them grow: seeds of gratitude, love, joy, and kindness, growing into the most beautiful garden in your mind and spreading into the rest of your life.
To quote the words of Les Brown, Inspirational Speaker…..”It’s possible.”

Happy spring cleaning to you.
