Spring Cleaning!

Do you ever feel like this guy? Waiting around, just hoping something will fall in?

I have this feeling these days that I'm waiting for something to happen.  It is typically an uncomfortable feeling for me, but lately, I'm more at peace with it. Even excited about it. (Can it be??) I'm not sure if it is because some of the major stress in my life has just relaxed, or if trying hard to live mindfully is finally paying off.  My guess is it's a bit of both.

So back to my feeling: I have been taking a look around and doing a little spring cleaning.  I don't mean of my closets and drawers, though goodness knows, they need it desperately.  No, this is more a spring cleaning of old thoughts and habits that don't work for me any longer.  That thought about being too overweight and unhappy?  I've outgrown it.  The habit of staying up late and feeling cruddy in the morning at work?  It has holes and needs to be tossed.  The thoughts that if I don't take care of our money, it will all still be ok?  Well, they have become too dirty and torn for repair, and need to be thrown.  Yep.  Spring cleaning, that's what I'm up to.  You see, it's my new thinking that until I get rid of the old mental gunk, the new ideas and opportunities won't gel.  So, I'm rooting around up there to get those old thoughts and habits cleaned out.  Because something is going to fall my way soon - just like with Mr. Crocodile up there.

What kind of spring cleaning are you up to?
