Clear your plate.
Let go of things that don’t serve you. That don’t inspire you. Give up things that aren’t working.
Let out a deep sigh. Pause.
Take a shower. Dunk in a waterfall. Wash it clean, letting water drip down around you, pour over your head. Feel the world rinse you off, like a fresh Spring rainfall sweeping the winter grime off of the sidewalks and into the gutters. Visualize the matter that you’re hanging on to washing down around your body, swirling in the drain, running down the gutter. Pour it out.
Wipe the slate clear. Clean your desk. Organize your pen box. Throw out all the dry ones. While you’re at it, get rid of all the ones you don’t like, because you don’t like them. Revel in the satisfaction of a pen that works just the way you want it to.
Sweep off all the old magazines that you “should” read and take that pile of reading that’s weighing you down and put them back on the shelves. No need to burden yourself with more left unfinished.
Finish something, quickly. Or better yet, get rid of it altogether. Say no to projects that don’t serve you, and strike up the courage to say no to things you said yes to—but deep down, you don’t want to do. Say no right away, rather than waiting until later to cancel.[tweetable hashtag=”#no #decisions #power @sarahkpeck”] Because you don’t want to is enough of a reason.[/tweetable]
Say no to things that come up unexpectedly, unless they release, inspire, and lift your soul. [tweetable hashtag=”#yes #letgo #delight @sarahkpeck”]Say yes to things that delight.[/tweetable] Remember what fun feels like. Giggle inside your house on the couch with markers and notebooks if that’s what does it for you.
Make space for you. For you to breathe, to dance, to play, to relax.
Make an orgasm happen, and relish in the aftermath by sinking into the pillows. Satisfy yourself.
Sweat it out. Burn it off.
Let go. Clear up. Spring Clean.
It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to release.—
