It is the beginning of summer and the ending of most of the pandemic restrictions. How has your life changed in the last fourteen months? How has your food changed? Have you spent the time cleaning out stuff and following your food plan, or have you spent it watching tv and snacking on high calorie nutrient free stuff?
Now is the time. And it is a precious time. A rare time. A real time for a new beginning. You can create a clean slate! Better than New Year’s or your birthday or a new job! And more powerful!
The pandemic may rise again, but we have today. Once in this generation, we have this space to look at who we are, where we are, what we really want. We can take this time to change our jobs, our commuting time, our relationships, our choices.
How do you make a clean slate? Pick a place in your home that has gotten messy during the pandemic: The kitchen? The stack of stuff in the living room? The mess in your closet or in the room that is supposed to be peaceful?
Clean it. Toss the junk. Toss the junk food. Toss all the stuff you don’t need, don’t like, does not fit, you don’t want, is no longer in style.
If there is food you don’t want to see in your kitchen, put it in a cabinet you never use. Wipe down the counters. Wipe off the cabinet doors. Spray a nice smelling cleaning spray or light a non-food smelling candle. And while we are at it, get all the food smelling candles, lotions, and potions out of your house. You no longer need to be triggered by them!
Now you have a clean space. A clean slate to start again. A fresh space. A new beginning.
A complete reset.
What do you REALLY want in your life?
How can you go get it?
Who do you need to help and support you?
What else will make you strong enough?
Get out a clean piece of paper and a pen or pencil that write. Divide it into three columns. One is for what you have and want to keep. Two is for what you have and do not want. Three is for what you don’t have and do want.
Focus on number one and say thank you.
Focus on number two and say thank you for your service. Please go help someone else now.
Focus on number three and say thank you, please come.
Now make a calm and steady plan. Each day you reach for what you want, and enjoy what you have.
Ask certain people to help you. Let the others go enjoy their lives.
Make conscious challenging choices.
Be a co-creator of the life you really want. Choose things that light up your spirit. Choose things that give you joy.
Clean off that counter and begin anew. You deserve the life you will love.
Yes, there will be some messies. There will be some pain or hurt. Change does that. But now is the time to take a good solid look at who you are and who you want to become. Who you want to have in your life; who you need to have in your life; who you want to draw into your life. How do you want to change your life? Your house? Your food? Your fun? Your goals? Your expectations? Make a list.
Be welcome to share your list below. Tell me the changes you want to make and the changes you need help with. We are here to listen with love.
Blessings to you,
