Cleaning my closet...

009_9For some reason on Saturday, I was up at the crack of dawn and chocked full of energy. The sun was streaming in my bedroom window and I wanted to get outside and ride. So that’s what I did for about 3 hours, at times going for speed then slowing my pace to simply take in the spectacular fall foliage. I enjoyed every minute of it.

On Sunday morning, I woke up, saw the sun streaming in and realized my bedroom was a disaster. It was time for a big clean. So, after taking a step class at the gym and meeting up with friends for coffee at our local Starbucks, I stopped procrastinating and got to scrubbing –- starting with my closet. I pulled everything out, looked at it, and then placed it in either a keep, donate or dump pile.

I thought about thoughts and that maybe I needed to do some mental cleaning too. I’ll catch myself thinking negative stuff (like you’re fat, no one will ever love you, you’re not smart enough, you’re boring. Blah, blah, blah). Why oh why do I still mentally beat myself up when I know it’s not true. I feel the best that I’ve ever felt in my life. So from now on, these bad thoughts will immediately go in the dump pile and I’ll only keep the good ones. My closet looks pretty fabulous now and my mind is a thing of beauty.

P.S. Please be kind to yourself, recognize and believe all the good things about you.

P.P.S. I really did paint my bedroom coral -- that's my clean closet thru the french doors on the left.
