The Time I (reluctantly) Let Myself Start Fresh

Spring Cleaning of the mind, body and spirit.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own.

I guess being single for the first time in 11 years at the start of Spring does seem like somewhat of a Spring Cleaning of sorts. Not a Spring Cleaning I ever imagined for myself or my children, but a Spring Cleaning I found necessary. And now, Spring Cleaning seems to be exactly the right term for it. A Spring Cleaning of the mind, body and spirit. I am focused on clearing out the mental clutter, letting myself take some time for self-care which had never been a priority, clearing out the baggage…in order to start a new and blossom. How symbolic that this is all taking place during Spring….and how symbolic that you can turn such a devastating experience into something beautiful when you tie it into the image of Spring.
