Spiritual Spring Cleaning
It’s a good time to take a life inventory in all areas of your life. Health, relationships, everything! Honestly evaluate where you are, where you want to go.
What needs to change? What needs to be released? Where can you improve? What goals can you set for yourself? Are you generally happy? How is your health? How are your relationships? Is your life balanced? How do you handle setbacks? Are you living your life’s purpose?
It may be painful but in the end great tool. You cannot change your life if you don’t acknowledge what is wrong. While your doing physical cleaning, think on some of these questions.
