I think it must be the arrival of spring that has me suddenly inspired to get my house in order. I’m not talking about re-organizing my kitchen cupboards (though that needs to be done, too), but rather, MY house – my mental, emotional, and spiritual house.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about how I want my life to be. I feel like I’ve allowed myself to go a bit off the rails the last few years. I’ve allowed myself to become complacent, just going through the motions in a lot of ways. This is never what I pictured for myself. I’m not aiming for a life that’s filled with excitement and wonder every day, but I do want a life where I’m growing and evolving and not settling, dammit.
I’ve been doing a lot of settling lately. Sitting back and waiting for happiness and inspiration and fulfillment to just magically find me where I am (which, a lot of days, is glued to my couch). For some reason, I just haven’t been able to win the spiritual lottery…all the rewards with none of the hard work.
Well my friends, spring is in the air…and I’m feeling ready to get out there and get what I want out of this life of mine. I don’t want to be a little old lady someday, regretting all the years I spent stuck to my couch, re-watching TV on Netflix (though let’s be honest, I’m still going to make time for a little bit of that, too). If I want things to change, if I want things to improve, then I’m the person who has to get out there and make it happen. Most of the time, inspiration and happiness and fulfillment don’t just magically hit us like lightning out of nowhere; we have have to go out and chase it down.
Let the chase begin.
