I L-O-V-E spring for many reasons but mostly because it's a fresh start!
Blooms are starting to peak out
Things are starting to turn green
The weather is becoming warmer (Depending on where you live. Or, it could already be perfect!)
April showers bring May flowers
Putting away warmer clothes for cooler clothes
Deep cleaning the house and decluttering
It's Easter time
It's my birthday😎🎉
I know it might seem like a random list... however, I love this list! Spring is literally a fresh start for me. What is on your list? Do you like spring or do you favor a different season?
When I think about spring cleaning, my experience has been a "deep cleaning". Taking curtains down and washing them, taking blinds down and washing them, dusting fan blades, cleaning out drawers and closets. I love that kind of stuff!
That may be why I love life coaching so much! It gives me the opportunity to look in my mind (a closet) and see what I want to keep and what I'm ready to get rid of.
There may be things that I'll pack away and store and there may be things that I'm ready to give away or even throw away. Each session I have with my coach is like cleaning out the things that are not serving me anymore.
I remember doing the Konmarie method with my closet a year ago. I thought I knew what was in my closet....until I emptied the entire thing out! HOLY COW!!! There was stuff hiding behind things and all sorts of things I had totally forgotten about.
A Life Coach is like going Marie Kondo on you brain!
We empty it all out and really ask ourselves what brings us joy and what we are ready to part with. With the Konmarie method, you thank an item you are going to get rid of because it has served it's purpose.
There is no need to judge or shame ourselves for what is in our mind. Everything in there has gotten us to where we are right now! We needed those experiences and thoughts to get us here! It's been perfect!
Are you ready to do some spring cleaning of your mind? The beautiful thing is, you don't have to get rid of ANYTHING if you don't want. Sometimes it's nice just to do an inventory of what is in there!
Here's your assignment for the week!
Consider doing a "thought download". That is were you take out a piece of paper and just write anything that is in my mind.... every random thought, everything that is keeping you awake at night and even the thoughts we don't or haven't acknowledged being there. Just get them all out on paper. No judgement. No time constraints, No shame. Just get it out on paper.
When you are done, look at the list and see if there is a particular thought that you would like to explore a bit more. I do a free 45 minute session with all of my clients. Let's take a look at one of your thoughts and see what is going on for you!
It's time! It will be fun, I promise!
Let's do this! Your Life Coach Robin P.S. Yes, It is my birthday April 2nd! I have always loved my birthday and never think about how old I'm getting. I look at birthdays like another amazing journey and take time to look back at all the incredible things that happened in my life the year before and then I dream like crazy about the amazing journey I'm going to have this coming year! Do you love birthdays? Have a great week! See you next Monday!
