Spring Cleaning!

Spring will be sprung upon us by the end of this week! Often when this time approaches, I like to take some time to go through my "stuff"-especially my house (closets!). Now, I am thinking that there is more in life to spring clean some other things in my life.Like a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual cleaning!
I am thinking that one way to get this done is to confront your sh*&! So many of us are afraid to do this- looking at the man/woman in the mirror and being honest. It can be a challenge and a refreshing experience.

Today, I will take steps for prepping for my spring cleaning. My pastor challenged us today to give up a negative habit and replace it with a positive one for a week. Although I haven't decided what my habit will be, I am up to the challenge and hope that you will try it as well! I look forward to seeing what the cleaning/cleansing holds for me and you! And I come out brand spanking new...or at least close to! Happy Spring Cleaning!

Pamper Yourself

Good People!
Soon Spring will be sprung and it is a time of R-E-N-E-W-A-L! I have to ask... what will you do to "renew" yourself?!
We are also in the time of Lent... which I think is a nice transition to Spring and our renewal process. You sacrifice or take on something that will benefit you in the long run all the while, becoming more spiritually renewed. In addition, remember, a habit forms after 21 consecutive days. Hmm, a good one hopefully!
Now, with all of that being said... what will you do? Pamper yourself! I say, when you take care of the outside, something beautiful happens with the In. Massages, mani/pedi, yoga, exercise, or a trip... whatever it may be for you... do it! PAMPER YOURSELF.
I have distinguished the 15th of every month as my "Self-Luxe Day"... my day to pamper (however small it may be!) and not feel guilty. For if I do not take care of myself, how can I take care of others?
With that set and a time of Lent upon us, I am excited about welcoming Spring in...I will be ready!! And I hope that you are too. So go out and get pampered... winter was hard and we all deserve something nice!
