An Open Letter: To Spring Cleaning Your Space

An open letter to cleaning your space for more reason than it just being a chore. May it also cleanse you spiritually!

An Open Letter: To Spring Cleaning Your Space

To Spring Cleaning Your Space:

Hey readers! This week's open letter is inspired by the arrival of (finally!) spring. Now, the title may sound a bit cliché but I guarantee you that "cleaning your space" has more to do with your spiritual than it does who comes over for dinner and sees clutter (though that is also important!).

I thought about what things in my own space cause me to feel out of sorts. It comes down to how much I've managed to keep without throwing anything out. It's a direct correlation to our spiritual.

Someone kept telling me for years how a change in decluttering your space can also do the same for your vibes. Weather alone can only do so much. I (finally!) decided to take a chance and go through a lot of things in my room. And like magic, I felt calmer.

I could remember asking myself constantly, "Do I need this? Why not?"

This helped to create a sense of control on what "made" my space and what didn't.

It also, in a strange way, allowed me time to realize that some items symbolized what was important to me now versus what was important to me in the past. Later, I would acknowledge that "spring cleaning" actually worked for my internal energies.

Life is busy and filled with less opportunity to get everything done that we want to, but even setting aside a day to declutter your space can make the difference. In no way, shape, or form, should you clean your space in bulk; begin one room at a time.

The most important thing I want my readers to take away from this letter: clean your home, but also pay attention to how it changes your mood. You should clean your space regularly, but I hope it changes your approach to other challenges in life as well. Ask yourself, "By keeping this, will it help me?"

I used to clean just to get it done because it had to be done, but cleaning is a more meaningful task. It does something positive to me spiritually. I encourage everyone to see if it helps you too.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
