Winter is slowing fading away and we’re starting to see the first signs of spring. As spring makes it’s way we suddenly feel the proverbial need to ‘spring clean’. And why not? It’s a wonderfully refreshing and renewing thing to do. Take a day to go through your belongings and get rid of those extra things you don’t need. Donate, give to a friend or recycle. Simplify, minimize, and allow space for new growth!
Don’t forget to also apply this to your internal life; de-clutter your mind. Think about what your goals are for this new time of growth. What has served you and needs to continue to be nourished and further cultivated? What hasn’t served you and is cluttering space in your life and mind that could be used for something that would make you happier?
Meditate on those thoughts and simplify them to a two sentence mantra. “I will cultivate _____________. I will let go of _____________.” Repeat, repeat, repeat.
