Are you still ruminating on an unkind comment, review or feedback that you got a few months ago? Do you wish that you could let a worry go instead of always circling back to it throughout the day? Have you been procrastinating on your project that you are really passionate about?
All this month I am going to focus the blogs on getting closure. Make sure to check out the second part of this blog on gaining mental closure on November 22nd.
Hard to believe it is almost 2022. This is a great time to get closure on things that have been bothering you, niggling you at the back of your head. Remember, you don’t have to get closure and there is no timetable to achieve it. I always suggest checking in with close friends or a professional if you seem unable to get closure after a while. No one can determine what is right for you but sometimes we can become unhealthy and not realize it.
What mental clutter would you like to release through closure? Maybe it is your biggest worry. Maybe it is that book you never wrote that you are beating yourself up about instead of facing that it is something you no longer want to spend the time and mental energy on.
If you are unsure of what mental clutter you have, Monitor your day. Do you worry about something? Have a lot of repetitive thoughts? Focus your energy on someone else? Consider journaling. Or ask a question, “What mental clutter would benefit me the most to release” and see if something comes to you.” Either through writing or sitting quietly to hear what your soul has to say.
Being open to get closure is a first great step. Sometimes half the battle is being willing to open up and see what else is possible. We can get stuck in our habits, thoughts and routines and not be open to ideas or doing something differently. If you are open to closure, let’s begin the process.
Gaining Mental Clarity
Be curious as to why you might not be willing to release something. I have neighbors that drive me nuts. What I realized that when I focused on them I could take the heat off of me and not grieve the loss of something. Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t nice people, but wasting my mental energy on them kept me stuck, unable to grieve and move forward. I was scared and once I admitted this, I was able to start the grieving process and eventually move forward.
Honor whatever comes up from you when you figure out why you have been holding on to something. Don’t judge yourself. Have compassion. You are human. This may take time, be honest with yourself and figure out what you need to honor your thoughts and feelings. You could have a wide range of emotions and feelings that pop up.
What mental clutter do you need to get closure with in your life? How can you connect with your inner wisdom? How can you be curious about your life?
Go out clear the clutter to create the life you choose, deserve and desire!
