Tis the season for spring cleaning, right? The hype of the new year is settling and our intensions and goals for the future are suddenly becoming a rude awakening. We begin to realize that in order to achieve them we need to clean house! Hence the spring cleaning season our society naturally defaults to year after year, begins! I know, your probably thinking…didn’t you just post last week that messes are beautiful and we should embrace them? Yep, I sure did! And let me tell you, over the last week living in my “new perspective” has been extremely challenging to say the least. I am going bonkers!! No joke!
Mind you, I had completely different plans for this weeks post, however every time I would sit down to pursue as planned nothing would form right or make sense! It seems there is a continuation on last weeks subject because I can’t seem to think about anything else.
There is no doubt God very much meant what He revealed to me here. However we all know God’s revelations ALWAYS have a bigger plan in mind and changing my perspective was only the beginning. Now that He has shifted my perspective to what really matters I need to remove the distractions that don’t.
Shortly after my perspective “shift” if you will, I watched a documentary on Netflix called “Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things“. It was getting a lot of hype so I thought I would check it out. And wow! What an eye opener! I immediately realized that our household not only has a ridiculous amount of stuff that brings no value whatsoever! But we have also accumulated habits and patterns that bring no value to the true purpose we have been called to. These are the true “messes”. And these “messes” are distracting us from seeing what really matters.
Although I don’t plan to pursue a true hard core minimalist lifestyle anytime soon. However during this spring cleaning season I pray that God will reveal those unnecessary distractions that are keeping me from focusing on what really matters in this life. So it looks like a “to be continued” is in order. I hope His revelations won’t be too painful! 😐
What about you guys? Have you seen the documentary mentioned? If so, did it stir up any spring cleaning urges? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
On another note, these sunshine yellows, clear sky blues, and refreshing waterfalls just seemed appropriate for setting the scene for my spring cleaning season. 🙂 Thank you for reading.
