“You’re off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so…get on your way!”
One of my all time favorite classic books is Dr. Seuss’s, Oh The Places You’ll Go. I have read this book countless times to my young children many moons ago, and had even given it to my son before he left for college (FYI, he was mortified). But honestly, its inspiration is timeless and so here I am sharing its resounding message once again.
Spring vacation is over. It was perhaps the perfect break that we all needed. It was a long cold winter and we needed to reboot. But now it’s time to crack the windows open, let the fresh air in, and breathe in all the new opportunities.
I woke up this morning to a bright sunny morning and I heard the birds melodically chirping. It felt different, as if mother nature was alerting me that indeed the new season is here. Do you feel the change too? Are you paying attention? It happens so quickly…one day it feels like winter left-overs and the next minute it’s Spring!
But as awesome as this change is, we must remember the window of opportunity is limited. Time to roll up those sleeves and jump into spring cleaning mode. Of course, there’s is the general house clean-up but the two areas that are time sensitive are the attic and the garage. Perfect opportunity for a garage sales and a house cleanse. Everyone is eager to shop for great bargains when the weather is beautiful. It’s ideal to do all you can do outside. Crank up the music and clean out the shed. Most importantly, the attic needs to be addressed before it gets too hot. The time is now.
So remember, Spring has sprung…
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go.”
Where will YOU begin to start your spring cleaning?
