“Help! I’m buried in spring cleaning!”
Are you having trouble finding your way out of the mess you created trying to get your spring cleaning done?
“Guilty as charged!”
When you pass through a transition in your life, sometimes the cleaning is so bitter sweet that it stirs up your world physically, mentally and spiritually.
I want to encourage you to keep on pushing through the mess until you bring your home the harmony that you deserve.
When you pull out all the assorted accumulation from the past, you may find that you can’t just toss it away and move on.
People make a living out of helping others get organized because it is a challenging thing to do for those who aren’t.
If you are highly efficient and organized, then I salute you!

When the first and last thing you see every day is clean and organized, the rest of your life will become more clean and organized.

This year I feel a need to pull all that “stuff” out of the boxes and see if I truly need to keep holding on to it.
The process brought up many old memories that I would rather not remember. It made me realize that I still harbor anger over events that happened a long time ago.
My anger is more irritation than rage, but when the “old stuff” reminded me of events from the past, and old anger surfaced, I was very aware that I had just released energy that had been harming me.
My light mood for the past week has reminded of the huge benefits gained from stirring up old feelings and releasing them all over again. It wasn’t the first time, and it probably won’t be the last.
Every time you cause old emotions to surface Continue reading article
