It’s hard to believe after a long, snowy winter in Boston , but Spring is just around the corner! Time to ditch the boots and sweaters for some lighter gear! Time to go through the closets and donate those jeans and bridesmaids dresses that you swear you’ll find a use for again! Time to go through the shoes, the bags, the make-up, the clothes… Spring cleaning ladies! After doing a bit of early Spring cleaning myself this past weekend, something occurred to me. We all spend a lot of time cleaning- PHYSICALLY cleaning; our bodies, our laundry, our homes, our cars, our food. Don’t get me wrong, this is all absolutely necessary for many reasons, but we also go beyond just cleaning these things. Many of us take the time to get a manicure, change our wall color, purchase a newer car, update our shoe collection, etc. My point is, we go beyond the necessary in these areas before many of us even think about one of the most critical areas that we need to de-clutter. We are painting our toe nails while ignoring something that can literally change our lives-our minds!
The mind is such a powerful tool, and so many of us go along on auto pilot under the assumption that things just happen to us by default, luck or coincidence-not so! We create our realities, and that is empowering news! During this time of seasonal change, known for clearing space and new beginnings, lets take the time to find our own personal way to clear our minds of the thoughts and attitudes that no longer serve us. For some this may mean taking a yoga class or spending time meditating and for others, it may mean less hours at work and more time spent with family, keeping a journal, or spending more time with friends that are uplifting. We all operate differently and some things work better than others for us to de-stress, clear our minds, relax and reevaluate. The point I want to reiterate here is to find way this Spring to not only de-clutter your closet, but de-clutter your mind. Clear out the negative, bring in the positive and relax! When we are clear, happy and chill out, we are magnets that attract our goals and desires! Sounds simple right? It IS! Spring is approaching ladies, so grab the magic mind broom and get sweeping!
Spring is a time of warm, sunny days, with occasional passing showers. Somewhat a brief, concise metaphor for life. RENEWAL. Rebirth. Laughter, vacations, new opportunity, RECYCLING, out with the old, in with the new. CHANGE. It’s like another shot at those New Year’s resolutions! I know that you are health conscious, spiritually savvy, fashionably hip, intelligent women who strive to live the best lives possible, all the while having fun and living passionate, loving lives! Are you with me? Take this opportunity and grab the reins, I believe in you! Spring is just around the corner, clean out your life, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. BALANCE is the key here. Once you de-clutter your life in these areas, you will be in a position to not only reach for the stars, but to grab them and throw them in your purse! I know, easier said than done, and I know some of you may be in situations that may leave you in despair and doubt, but the reality is, you’re like a magnet! It’s very simple-what you think, speak and act upon you draw toward you. If you can’t make big changes right now, that’s fine! Small changes have a big impact! Continue to keep a clear mind, body and spirit, and focus on your goals. Before long, you will see the effects of your work! The mind is an amazing tool and thoughts fuel your future. You are the artist and your palate is filled with amazing, bright, colorful choices! So ladies, how will you add color to your world today?
