Since about September its felt as though we need to do a thorough house cleaning in our homes as well as our lives. The dusting and sweeping and shaking of rugs. In some cases it is literally dusting those cobwebs out of our house and our lives. Some of those cobwebs masquerade as concerned family and friends. Others might be nosy co-workers.
As we give those rugs a good shake and the dust and dirt fall outside. It makes our living space feel somewhat lighter. Similar to when we get rid of toxic people from our lives. We can start to think and breathe easier. Eliminating those people who don’t respect boundaries in our life, by screening calls or even blocking their phone numbers. Just as we get rid of clothing that no longer fits and letting go of relationships that been out grown.
This feeling has become stronger as we’ve gotten closer to the end of the year. Getting rid of things that we never liked. By being more true to who we are; and being someone we aren’t to please other people. Speaking up more rather than being PC. Finding our voice rather than holding on to anger and allowing it to build. Spending time to get to know yourself and find out who you really are! Instead of trying to be someone you’re not just to please others. That in and of itself is a losing battle into insanity.
