As all of my family and friends will attest, I absolutely love my birthday!! As a child it revolved around presents and being the center of attention (ok that hasn’t exactly changed), but as I’ve gotten wiser I’ve discovered that each new year brings with it an exciting opportunity for new beginnings and adventures. During this season, I enjoy taking stock of my life and clearing out all of “my junk.” It’s like cleaning out your refrigerator and finding a few long forgotten expired items. Things you didn’t even realize were WAY past their expiration date.

What “items” in your life are you keeping around long past their expiration date?  What things have outlived their purpose and are no longer serving you?  Maybe it’s a toxic person or relationship you can’t seem to shake, a job you’re dissatisfied with, a lifestyle plan that’s not getting you the desired results, a negative attitude, a closet full of old relics, an outdated hairstyle, and the list goes on and on.  Do some soul searching over the next few weeks and see if there’s anything you can discard that’s not creating positive energy in your sphere.  I know the idea of letting go and change can be scary, but think about it this way.  Sometimes you need to clear out the clutter to make room for all of the wonderful things the universe has in store for you.  🙂

“When we clear the physical clutter from our lives, we literally make way for inspiration and good, orderly direction to enter.”
