Morning has broken like the first morning…
On this, the first official day of spring, I was glad and thankful to wake up nice and comfortable in my bed. No alarm clock, but an incessant meowing was letting me know someone was ready for breakfast. A few minutes later, I was able to greet the day’s sunshine and cool air and what do you know, my heart did feel light and happy.
I know I can personally attribute some of that to all the purging and cleaning I’ve been doing. It took just about three solid days of handling each piece I own and asking it if this item continued to bring me joy or not to go through my belongings. This included releasing a lot of old sheet music I honestly knew I wouldn’t play or sing anymore. There were documents from professional school all the way back to grade school that I was able to let go of. There were old journals, mementos, clothes, household goods that wanted to leave, some expensive, some worth little more than the sentimental value it held. Honestly though, even if I didn’t have a lot of things to sort through to begin with (yay for the natural urge to periodically purge), bringing this extra step of mindfulness into my physical releasing resulted in a room that itself feels brighter and lighter. A third went straight to the trash and the rest wanted a chance at a new life with someone else.
So physically, it’s nice to get the spring cleaning done ahead of spring. Now I get to look forward to what’s next – sunshine (at least until the rains come back), spending time with the furry members of the family, and creating something special to share (hint, hint – are you ready to learn more about how crystals can help you in your healing journey?). My heart is light – how may I share that with you today?
