I told myself I was going to sleep early tonight, yet here I am. I have to wake up for work in less than six hours. I have too much on my mind tonight. It happens to the best of us. The other day I found myself going through all of the shit under my sink and other storage compartments. It looked like I had been hoarding stuff for a while. As I scanned certain items, I realized there were items I had not touched in months. Why did I hold onto these things? I felt so consumed by all of the stuff…it’s just stuff. I immediately got a small trash bag and starting tossing old cleansers, makeup, empty containers, and more into it. The bag was full, needless to say, and my body felt lighter. I think this sort of “spring cleaning” mindset is beneficial. It doesn’t just have to apply to throwing out old clothes or organizing things, but I feel as though it can be applied to your mind and thoughts. I think some of us, myself included, could use a spring cleaning for thoughts of hate, self-doubt, or sadness. These are also things we don’t need in our lives. Next time you find yourself in the mood for some cleaning and organizing, don’t disregard your mind and overall well-being. Above all, make time for self love.
