It's Spring REALLY Here !?

Springtime is officially here!!!! At least I hope it is :-)  ! As tradition would have it, many homes undergo “Spring Cleaning” or “Deep Cleaning” with the change of the season. We tend to clean out closets by getting rid of possessions and clothing that’s either old or (in my case) too small!!! Time is also taken to open windows and allow fresh air to circulate through our homes.
 As we perform Spring Cleaning in our homes, I wonder if we are also taking the time to perform a mental Spring Cleaning????
As we move into the 2nd half of 2019, what (if any) items have you considered removing from your mental space? Do you have mental clutter?

Here are a few questions to ponder as you attempt to go into this portion of 2019 more emotionally healthy.
  1. Who are you connected to via social media that constantly kills your vibe?  Let’s be honest here….. there are some people we have connected ourselves to via social media that are totally not healthy for our future self. If you have friends on social media and you’re afraid to click on their videos that’s a good indication that you should consider hitting the “Unfriend” button. If you’re embarrassed by their posts as you scroll across them… “Unfriend” immediately. If posts from your so-called friends don’t seem to align with who you are and where you are in life….  please do yourself a solid and hit the “Unfriend” button.
  1. Who are you connected to (beyond social media) that seem to only bring drama when they call, text or visit? These are the friends that can never BE a friend because they are constantly bombarding you with their issues. They can never seem to return the favor. These are the friends that can never show up, call or text unless they are in need. They only answer the phone when it benefits them. If you have friends in your life that fits this description, please understand….THIS IS NOT SOMEONE TO CONSIDER YOUR FRIEND. Maybe removing the person from your life completely is a stretch, but let’s at least consider re-evaluating the nature of the relationship. Maybe the person would fit better in the “associate” category versus “friend.” By placing the person in the right category, you will be able to reshape the expectations of the relationship.
