I hope you’ve had a productive week. It feels so good to accomplish something, doesn’t it?
I’ve been busy cleaning out my house, a project that won’t be finished anytime too soon I’m afraid! Over the years, as the kids have grown and our needs have changed, we’ve acquired quite a bit of clothing that no longer fits, furniture and items we no longer need or have space for, and other assorted “things” that have ended up bogging us down and filling up our living space – preventing us from enjoying our home as much as we should.
So now is the time to start my campaign to declutter our lives and already we’ve seen a huge difference.
I think our minds and attitudes get like that sometimes, too.
We fill up the space with problems and difficulties, worries and dread. Eventually we bury ourselves beneath it all without even realizing the weight we have pressed down on our heart and spirit.
Sometimes, you need to get up early, go outside and watch the sunrise. You need to sit in the sunshine, even if only for a few minutes, and remember what it’s warmth feels like. You need to go to the park and swing like a child, to help recall the freedom of wondering if you can really fly.
Sometimes, we need to step out from the mantle of it all in order to have a better perspective.
Spring is coming, maybe it’s time to declutter 🙂
