Do you feel spring in the air?
Maybe that’s because we live in California, and everything is already in full bloom.
When spring arrives, my need to organize and declutter goes into overdrive.
I want to make space for new experiences, opportunities, and energy.
An important aspect of helping ourselves bloom is to let some stuff go.
It’s mental and physical decluttering process so we can allow more space and openness for our boldness.
Which one of these 3 items will you let go of – so you can bloom – this spring?
1. Worrying about fitting in
There is nothing more exhausting than trying to be someone you aren’t. That doesn’t make things easier for you in the long run. Why? Because you aren’t using your energy to sustain yourself. Trying to fit in puts you at constant odds with yourself. You don’t have time for that.
2. Allowing regret to control you and keep you small
We all make mistakes; no one is exempt from this. Learn the life lesson and forgive yourself. When the self-defeating thoughts come up, write about it. Get some clarity about what triggers the regret – and then get help and relief.
3. Waiting for the perfect conditions.
I can’t emphasize this enough – your time is now! You may not have all the answers right in front of you, and that’s OK. Commit to taking 1-to-5 steps (big or small) to get going on your “what’s next?”. You don’t have to do it perfectly. You just need to trust yourself and get started.
How can you model this type of decluttering to help the tweens/teens you support – bloom this spring?
