Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

url-2My favorite time of year is almost here…Spring! It’s March and it’s time to put away the sweaters and boots. Bring on the bright colors and flip flops! I love opening my windows and letting the fresh air fill the house. It makes me want to go for a run…well maybe a walk. I pick restaurants that have outdoor seating. I move my meetings to the outdoors. Everyone is so over winter and ready for warm weather and flowers. I love this season because it reminds me of a fresh start.
Spring is the perfect name for this season. Everyone seems to have a spring in their step. They start spring training for sports. It’s the perfect time to start training for marathons, bathing suit weather and spring cleaning! Out with the old and in with the new! Spring cleaning my house just does something to me. Purge, purge, purge! Get rid of anything I haven’t worn in six months and replace old things with new. You know where this is going don’t you?
This is what we should be doing spiritually….spring cleaning! Evaluate everything! Worn out friendships that drain you, routines that are taking you nowhere, food that is not helping you with bathing suit season, overcommitted in certain areas and not being able to say no! We all have choices. God says to choose wisely. Take this time to spring clean your life. Set boundaries. Prioritize your life before it prioritizes you. The choice is yours.

See you outside,
