Signs of spring are in the air. The weather has been consistently warmer, the sun is finally shining and things are beginning to bloom. Yesterday, on the way to yoga, I sighted a small bunch of bluebonnets growing along the highway. It’s a sure sign that we’ve turned a corner. I’m ready for the change.
Rambo is benefitting from the medications the vet has given him (anti-inflammatory and anti-spasm). He’s more playful and energetic than he’s been in weeks. It’s hard to imagine that he’s sick. He’s acting so normal. And that, like the sunshine this week, has been good for my soul.
I have spring-cleaning fever and big plans for April. I’m feeling a desperate need to clean out and make space – physically, mentally, spiritually.
My growing list includes …
- Juice cleanse.
- Eat tons of fresh fruits and veggies.
- Reduce sugar, dairy and carbs.
- Plenty of yoga.
- Daily meditation.
- Sort all my clothes.
- Keep what feels good.
- Give away anything that doesn’t.
- Organize the closets.
- Pull everything out of the kitchen.
- Paint the cabinets.
- Put things back with intention.
- Organize the laundry area.
- Bring order to the utility closet.
- Sort my art supplies.
- Keep what is useful.
- Let go of anything that isn’t.
- Leave nothing unsaid.
- Do one thing at a time.
- Practice gratitude.
It feels really good to be here – on the verge of what’s next, ripe and weighted with possibility.
I’m going to make space in my life so beautiful new things can show up. It’s my way of telling the universe, ok, I’m ready.
