Have you ever thought to spring clean your mind for focus?
Spring cleaning – I just love the thought of those two little words! My mind’s eye pictures sun-dappled, gleaming floors; light streaming through sparkling glass windows. White vases, laden with tulips, flank clean kitchen counters. A gentle breeze from the freshly swept deck wafts a subtle fragrance of potted purple and yellow pansies through screen doors.
Smiling with satisfaction over my hard work, I settle into an easy chair with my favorite Magnolia magazine and a cool glass of iced tea.
And then, there’s reality.
Which would be in the form of paint chipped walls, cluttered corners, and a suffocating, overwhelming feeling of – too much.
I don’t know where to begin because there’s too much to do!
The same can be said for our minds. I don’t know about you, but my mind gets cluttered quickly with the details of the day and before I know it, I’m overwhelmed.
I yearn for peace, direction, and an uncluttered mind.
Oh hi – is that you over there sitting in the same boat? If so, allow me to share a few startling revelations from my quest for focus. Slip me some oar if you see yourself in any of these situations:

After all – people need me! (What’s that? My family? Oh, pssshhhttt. I’ll always have them – society needs me more. After all, I want to do my part!)
5.) And then there’s social media
Hey – I enjoy it! Plus I’m in charge of a Facebook group, so I have to be on constantly. Instagram? Yes. My business account that needs tending. Snapchat? Of course – how are my followers going to know I’m a real person?
6.) About that pesky pet sin
I know I have a problem, but honestly, I don’t have time to deal with it. It’s only a little thing, anyway. It’ll probably go away eventually. (Jealousy, lust, gluttony, greed, anger.)
7.) I’m not good enough
I’m too fat/too thin/too short/too shy/too loud/too pimply/too gangley that no one could ever truly love me for me. The negative self-talk is just how I roll. It’s how I keep myself humble, ya know?
