The trick is to enjoy life. Don’t wish away your days,
waiting for better ones ahead. ~ Marjorie Pay Hinckley

A couple of days ago I wrote about the rut I’m in and the possibility that it’s related to a case of spring fever.  But I also suggested a good seasonal cleaning might be beneficial.  I’m not talking about donning the rubber gloves and scrubbing the windows and screens, or purging closets and cupboards (although definitely not out of the question).  What I’m referring to is getting rid of the stuff — baggage with labels such as disappointments, failures, poor choices, regrets, (fill in the blank here) — we’ve accumulated since the beginning of the new year (or well before that) which hinders our daily living.  The past is the past.  Let’s purpose to leave it there right this very moment and focus on Today.  We can still wait for a better Tomorrow, but let’s work at arriving there with a much cleaner slate.  I think that may be the trick Ms. Hinckley is talking about.

Are you in need of a little spring cleaning to remove the baggage weighing you down?
