Spring Cleaning: For The Soul

Let’s bloom — beautifully — into spring.

The winter blues are quickly fading as my favorite time of year rolls in.

Spring. The season of new life. Little birds hatching with blurry eyes, fresh buds bursting through the soil, seeking the sun. A perfect time to cleanse our souls, and grow along the wildflowers.

I’m a lover of cleaning. It’s silly. A clean home is a happy home. I’m entering spring with the same mindset. A clean soul is a happy soul. I’m taking things step by step, in the same routine that is taken when I’m scrubbing my home to happiness. This means purging the bad, and replacing it with good.

Lay It All Out. Before tackling the abode, I typically take a step back and look at what needs work. With spring approaching, I’m recreating the same visual within my internal self. What corners in my life need cleaned up? Where do I feel messy, overwhelmed, dirty? I’m sitting quietly in my room, on the floor, and I see it all. I see issues that have been taking a toll on me mentally, and declutter them. I sort through all of the bad that sits within relationships, finances, deadlines, goals and health.

Look Up. Cleaning can be tough work. Especially when I’m sorting through tough areas in my life. Reminding myself to look up helps me from getting down on myself throughout the process. I’m getting rid of all the “stuff” that I don’t need, and letting it go. Everything is always going to be ok.

Open New Doors. The closets in my mind are now cleaned out. I’ve addressed the bad, and now get to welcome all of the good. It’s time need to open new doors, visualize the opportunities that are ahead of me, and be up for whatever comes my way.

Breathe. This is the fun part — I get to enjoy my life. I have a fresh start. I got rid of all the yuck that has been weighing me down, and now have a chance to relax. My chalkboard has been wiped clean. Whatever story I choose to write for myself is in my hands.

I’m heading into spring like a bud. I’m refreshed, and ready to grow. My roots run deep, keeping me grounded. I’m going to bloom into something beautiful. I hope y’all take the time to clean your soul and join me. What soul cleansing tips do you have? How are you getting ready for your fresh start? Let me know in the comments!

I’ve always thought Autumn was my favourite season but I’ve decided that Spring may also be my favourite. This year, going from Winter to Spring was like taking a massive breathe or coming up for air…

Love this article and the photos match really well!
When spring starts, I love to be outside more! One of my favourite ways to get ready for a fresh new start is by going for a (long) walk. I take my camera with me, listen to the sounds of nature, and take pictures of everything that gets my interest. It really helps me to clear my mind and to move on to the next chapter.

Good article – how much I can hide in my soul, when I don’t take the time to look there – working on it and my home – time to let go…

The post is really helpful and the photos are beautiful also. I follow this type of tips but I need a commercial cleaning company after certain time. They provide satisfactory services. You can check out http://thequickmaid.com/ if you are in Ottawa, Canada.

The way to described things is amazing, I always thought that cleaning is the most toughest thing. But in your way, it seems not that bad at all.

‘Lay It All Out.’ was a very helpful step, sometimes I just start doing things little by little and it’s not good time management. So if I just step back and make a plan, I can prioritize. If its okay I find some good cleaning quotes you’d probably love. I’ll leave them here for you: Cleanliness Slogans
