Last Monday was one of those rare experiences when all of us were feeling joy and gratitude for the lessons and gifts we’d received. When I think about how each of us got to that natural high, it was that we’d each done some significant clutter clearing and self-care.
One woman had cleared away some emotional pain associated with a difficult divorce. Another had made time for exercise and play with a delightful grandson. She’s also found herself clearing out closets–making space for new, good things to come into her life.
I have been going through my file cabinets, an onerous task that makes my gut hurt. I’ve been doing at least 5 files per day–most days. I also found myself walking through my house removing small decorative items, like refrigerator magnets. I just needed more quiet in my space!
All that clearing and on Monday we were rewarded with the pleasure that comes when you’re connected with yourself at a soul level. Joy, laughter, gratitude were such good medicine for a Monday!
Clear some clutter this weekend and you too can have a joyful Monday!
