I am sitting on the pool deck overlooking the beach at our condo in St. Augustine, Fl. We have been to this beach before, rented from the same company, so I knew what to expect. Actually, they do a great job letting us know what is in the condo so we know whatbto expect. As a result, I packed much less than I did for our last vacation two years ago.
In fact, I can say that in comparison to many people I know, our home and much of our life is minimalist in its theme. Then, I come to the beach. And I realize how much crap we have. The four of us are staying in two bedrooms and though it is beautiful and decorated with authentic Tommy Bahama beach fun, it really is sparse and brings me to point of wanting to go home and toss everything we own in the trash. I am SO not kidding.
I want to. But, I wont.
Here is what I will do: Another purge. Do you remember when I left my job a couple of years ago? I knew that we would be home more often than not and needed to have more breathing room. I have purged and purged and purged. Guess what? I am doing it again. Tonight, over dinner, I put the kids on notice. We are making another sweep next week.
I even have some things in mind and everyone agreed to release these items when we get home.
This week in paradise is our reset. It is my clutter clearing for my soul. I am thankful for the chance to clear my mental cobwebs which will allow for more clearing at home which in turn allows me to support my manifesting work and the release that I bring to my clients.
I know that everyone does not get a week in paradise. I am one of the lucky ones. Always have been. My wish for you today is to find your own reset button and push it. A manicure? A pedicure? Your favorite ice cream or dinner at a favorite restaurant. Find ways to reset and clear the clutter of your soul. Good luck and get to manifesting.
