Just as we frequently clean up our homes, we also need to clean up our lives. There are times we really need to get rid of stuff that no longer serves us – and be unafraid to let go. You may find all sorts of reasons or excuses not to do this, and continue in allowing your internal dialogue to keep that very tight hold over you.
Cleaning up our homes is physical, whilst cleaning up our lives is spiritual. Cleaning up our lives spiritually is far deeper, as it is cleaning up our hearts – the lies, the hate, the envy, the rivalry, the pain – those bad thoughts about others. Cleaning out those very things that clogs up our hearts, preventing us from progressing. You have to make it important enough for your mental, emotional and physical well-being. It makes no essence in fussing about your home, when yet your heart is filled with clutter.
When things begin to hinder our lives, we need to consider decluttering our homes as well as our lives – in cleaning up your act.
