Spring cleaning is the time where families or group of people take the initiative together to clean up their house and environment, to wipe every corners of the floor, vacuum the whole house,to throw out any items that are old and no longer useful etc… well, you get the idea… Once all that is done, the reward is that we can live in a clean environment and no dirty bugs would dare to enter. Everyone loves to live in a clean environment as it provide comfort and warm around the atmosphere. However, not many would want to do spring cleaning.
Many times in our life as well, we all have our own mental house which is our mind. Sometimes we have these thoughts of defeats, failures and disappointments in our mind for so long. The thing is sometime we keep them in our mind rather than throwing them out. Just as we have our psychical house to clean, we too have our mental house to clean. Remember, those negative thoughts will eventually attract the feeling of sadness and discomfort in our life. Do not let these things take up the space in our mind till there is no more room for new thoughts of victory and favour.
The greatest need of our time is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters our mind.Thomas Merton
Therefore, it is about time to we do some spring cleaning in our mental house as well, to de-cluttered the mess, to vacuum out past regrets, to wipe out thoughts of failures and to throw out every negative thinking in our life. Once we have done that, not only we have a clean mind, but now we have make room for new things, new desires, new dreams, new thoughts of victory and favour being filled in our mind. The reward is we get to live life with happiness once we have gotten out old thoughts of defeat and bringing in new thought of victory.
