Life is hard enough, cleaning should be easy

Cleaning is a life chore.  What is a life chore?  Great question.  A life chore is a chore that you will need to do daily if not weekly your entire life.  That can sound pretty ominous if you don't like your chore.

Imagine two lives... One life is filled ease.  Simple tasks creating a nourishing life.  Tasks done effortlessly, enriching your life. Tasks that create happy spaces and healthy places. The other life is full of dread and frustration.  Feeling depleted, worn out and weighed down by life. 

Choice is the key word here.  Thankfully we have a choice.  Chores are closely tied to our habits.  They are repeated over and over again. They run on autopilot.  If you have a life chore... cleaning, shopping, cooking, paying bills, even exercising that is not working for you change your habits, upgrade your skills and shift your attitude.

I've enjoyed 27 plus years of writing, experiencing, coaching, teaching, learning and pondering, this rich field has become a deep source of wisdom and inspiration.  Dive into anything deep and long enough and you will find your answers.

I've seen chores and home care cause illness, damage, stress, pain, and anxiety and depression.  I've also seen these same life chores create healthy, happy and nourishing spaces for families to thrive.  I choose the later and I bring my arsenal of experience and enthusiasm to help you do the same.

My passion and goals are always the same to bring ease and lightness to your life.  To help your life run easier so you can do what you were created to authentically as only you can do.

If you are ready to shift your life chores let's get going.  We all have one life to live, getting bogged down in a chore is depleting of your spirit.

  Question:  Think of all your daily and weekly chores and tasks.  Which ones give you energy and which ones take it away?

How to find your own answers...

Two simple questions from one powerful perspective...

When you are searching for an answer or trying to decide your best next step ask first...

First ask yourself...
Does it give me energy?  Do you fill lighter, expansive energized with a yes or no answer?
Does it deplete me?  Do you feel heavy, overwhelmed, confined with a yes or no answer?

Perfect! Next...
Think of yourself as a wise and happy elder.  Content and all-knowing at the end of your life.  Ask this future you these same questions...  
     To arrive in this beautiful, wise and contented place looking back on my whole life...
            Will this _?__ support me or deplete me to where I want to be in the long run.

Clutter clearing, and downsizing is a spiritual journey.  Doing it from a place of great wisdom is a game changer. 

 We are blessed with options and abundance in our world.  Sometimes too much muddles our own path. Taking time to ask a couple simple questions is priceless.

Wishing you clarity on your path.  No one knows what this path better than you!

When in doubt...sit

Today, I was faced with a decision.  I couldn't come up with a clear answer and it was making my stomach turn.  I laid down for a 20 minute nap and when I woke up I had my answer: be still.

We have many opportunities and options in our great country.  We are blessed with abundance and with abundance comes choices. More is not always better. There is an ease to having fewer options.  Your mind can relax.  It becomes more creative with less.

This is our Penny kitty.  She understands stillness. 
I help people let go of the "too much" world.  I am not immune to this world.  Maybe I don't collect things but it is easy to collect ideas, tasks, opportunities, possibilities.
Tonight before I toddle off to bed I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

If you can't decide- don't.  Become very still and listen
Before going forward clean
      clean out your projects, your procrastinations, your unfinished beginnings
By going back and cleaning up, you gain insights into where you want to go.
By becoming still, you ground yourself, your breath deepens as does your internal wisdom

These are my thoughts before I sleep.  July is a good month to clean out and breathe.
