AYD - April 4, 2013 - Spring Cleaning - Mind Body and Wow...Look at all this Crap!

"Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."
- Author unknown to me

Spring Cleaning is upon us.  Many will clean the house, look in dark corners, sweep under the bed, and most likely do a review of some stuff that is tucked away in boxes.  There will be good feelings and comparisons made in discussions of who got rid of what, how much, the new found clean feeling and that, "I feel better" that removes this nagging loose end from our to do list.

Decluttered is a feeling.  I think I will petition to have it in the dictionary as such.

"How are you?", asked Eliza.
"Decluttered", replied Mable.
"Oh, that must be wonderful !  How ever did you do it?  Please tell me", Eliza implored.

You get the idea.  And if Mable was smart she would write a How To book and charge $10.

And so...today we want to include that great feeling, and have you Spring Clean your thoughts, your feelings of guilt, feelings of failure, and basically any emotional tie you have that is holding you back.

Success books and self leadership books will always talk about surrounding yourself with like minded people.  I go on to say that you want to be one of those good like minded folks within yourself, and to others.  So it is time to walk away from unproductive feelings about your growth, success rate, where you are in life etc. 

Negative thoughts do not serve you, grow you, or make you happy.  Vicim or Victor people ! 

So.. checklist starts with the obvious.  People that drain your energy.  Where is my spray bottle of Mr. Clean?

Old pants in the back of the closet that might fit my ass again when I walk away from these pounds that no longer serve me... Gone.  Besides...they are out of style and people will laugh at you.  ( personal experience...shh...it still hurts.)

Boxes in the basement that hold onto stuff you have not even seen in 10 years.... Hey... look how that stuff shreds...Shredders make wonderful music.

And now... the most important check mark.... look at all those cluttered thoughts that stall your forward steps... Grab a fresh mind cloth...get it wet with clean warm water...and imaginary soap... and wipe, scrub, and do what you have to to get that clean canvas ready.

And... after all this cluttered babble... just read it again and close your eyes and think of one thing today you can get rid of.
"Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy."

Great morning, Great day.  Great you, a better day for others.
