A life cleanse should be a yearly ritual, but so many of us forget to shed the old and make way for something new. Begin at home and ultimately end with a smile. Hit refresh!
What are you waiting for? Seriously, cleaning out your life will be the best thing you do for yourself this month and this year. We all think we’ve let go of the past, but if your home is chock full of old memorabilia from trips and weekend adventures, then perhaps you haven’t done as good a job as you think. What types of things do you save? Be honest, because we all save weird and random stuff. Most of it we don’t want and don’t even remember exists, yet its clogging up our lives and our homes. Give yourself a well deserved life cleanse, starting at home!
Mandi wrote recently about how we completely cleansed our home of all the minutia that had collected over the last decade of our lives. Letting go and getting rid of stuff is liberating, but more importantly, it makes room for new and better things to take its place! You can’t expect to receive new money and new possessions without room at home for them to exist. Our lives are so mental and if you know that your home is full of junk, you won’t even consider the possibility of receiving more. But we all want to! So clean it out, trim the fat, let go of the past, and put a smile on your face in the process.
We were lucky, because the two of us were able to life cleanse together. But if you need help, there are great services out there to get the ball rolling. Cleaning your home is not just about literal cleaning, but Amazon Home will come do that for you. It also means fixing things that have been long broken, like that leaky faucet in the upstairs bathroom. Or finally assembling that new piece of furniture you bought, but never felt confident enough to build yourself. All of those services and more are so easily available, it’s about time you took advantage and cleaned things up at home!
Doesn’t that feel better? Simply the act of booking an appointment for cleaning is an accomplishment worth celebrating. You acknowledged that change is a part of life and something to embrace and enjoy. You even took the step to make it happen, plus you committed to seeing it through. Your life cleanse wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t do SOMETHING to celebrate the new space and new home you’re creating. Do what you love most! If that happens to be shopping, well get to it. Or go for a hike or to the movies. Whatever makes you smile, do that.
Life is meant to be enjoyed, not a burden of our past experiences. We live, we learn, and we let go. But all too often we forget to actually let things go, instead tossing things into a dark corner of a closet and hoping they disappear. Those things don’t go anywhere unless you physically and mentally remove them from your life. That’s what it means to life cleanse. That’s why it’s so important!
Don’t be shy, share your story with us either in the comments below or on social media. We could even publish one of them, if you’ve truly embraced the change enough to inspire others on their own journey. Go out there and make it happen! You’ll be happy you did.
Share with us your questions, comments, and success stories. We are all in this game together and need one another’s support to succeed!
