I’m really excited to begin my first phase of Spring Cleaning! Spring is just around the corner, and I always associate the beginning of this season with cleaning. I hope to start first with my closet! I bought a few organizing totes, and I’m going to try to be more efficient and organized with my things. I also hope to go through my clothes and remove items I have not worn for more than a year. Paul and I both try not to hold on to too much “stuff.” It is so freeing to not be tied down by your personal belongings. We feel that we can fly off at anytime without worrying about leaving our things behind. Paul lets go of his things too quickly sometimes, and I am the one who makes excuses to keep things. It can be pretty funny when Paul is looking for a book or something else that he has given away and then we end up buying it again!
I am also feeling a major pull in my heart to adopt a more modest wardrobe. Modest dress has been a topic of discussion for Paul and me since the beginning of our marriage. It is definitely one I have spent time praying about also. I am really beginning to understand how important it is to be set apart from the world. I also know that I am currently not where I hope to be in the future, regarding modesty. I am growing and changing everyday. This is a journey and I am praying for strength and guidance to become the woman that Yahweh wants me to be. So the changes I am making now may be small, but they are changes in the right direction. I admit that I can still get caught up in the current styles and trends, but I know that in my heart, these material things are not important to who I truly am.
Another great way to start a spring cleaning regime is by beginning a fast or cleansing program. Try juicing or eating a 100% raw diet for a days, and the EJUVA Herbal Cleanse is another awesome way to rid your body of excess toxins. We try to do this program yearly, but I am holding off now until I am finished with breastfeeding.
I encourage all of you to start a little spring cleaning! Whether it is your closet, your diet, or your spiritual life, try cleaning different areas in your life to create room for more positive things to come to you this year.
