“Clean your spirit.”
When our mothers told us to clean our rooms, they were unwittingly giving us a gift that would have lasting repercussions. Although we grumbled when asked for the umpteenth time to clear the mess, we were actually doing more than physically cleaning our rooms. We were cleaning our spirits as well.
There is a spiritual side to everything – even household chores. Cluttered rooms are often indicative of a cluttered mind. Messy houses may point to messy lives. If you are feeling overwhelmed by life, go clean a closet. It’s the quickest and cheapest therapy for regaining a sense of control and a feeling of accomplishment.
From that platform of confidence, you can then go on to solve the more difficult aspects of your life, knowing that you have solidarity and order backing you up.
Cleaning a closet, a room, or an entire house can give you a real sense of power. It’s like saying to the universe: “My house is in order!”
