Yesterday, I cleaned house. Yep, I vacuumed all three levels of our townhouse, cleaned four bathrooms, and mopped the kitchen and dinning room floors all the while making sure that the kids were safe and happy. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for my Christian Science nursing experience!!! 😀 Ten years ago, I dragged my feet to clean the house. I pined over where I should start, how long it would take, and all the things I needed to do that were more important. To say the least, I didn’t clean house very often.
Anyway, today I got stared right away, knew exactly where to start and enjoyed every second of the process. Of course, the most happy moment was looking back at all that was accomplished. This might seem like a small thing to you, but it was monumental to me. I’ve made a huge amount of progress.
Also, as I was cleaning, I was thinking about why it feels so great to clean. Cleaning house frees you and allows you to be more efficient and fruitful in the home. It frees your mind mostly! Just think about how free your thoughts are when your home is all in order. You can focus on the really important things. How true it is that this is also what happens when we clean out the muck in our thinking. We feel freer, effective, and fruitful. Want to be a success, clean your mental house!
