As we say goodbye to yet another summer season, we anticipate the start of a new one, and typically around this time of year, I like to indulge in a bit of what I like to call, “Fall Cleaning.”
No, this isn’t the same as your Spring cleaning regime, in fact, it has very little to do with throwing out old clothes in preparation for some new trends.
“Fall Cleaning” has much more to do with everyday life and saying goodbye to anything that isn’t pushing you forward.
Remember all of those New Year’s resolutions you made back in January? How many of us can say we stuck to them in hopes of achieving positive results?
Don’t feel so bad if your answer points to no. Like many of us, I too set goals in the beginning of the year. Before you know it, it’s four months until the end of the year and you wonder where all the time went. Whatever your reasoning, I’m here to tell you, it’s not too late!
It’s usually around this time of the year where I take a step back and re-evaluate things in my life. I do this in order to see how I’ve progressed with certain initiatives, as well as, what I could do to progress even further and achieve the goals I set in the beginning of the year.
I think it’s important to note that perhaps there are situations, relationships, and other factors that are holding you back from being your best self, from achieving your goals and putting your best foot forward.
Thus, the title of this blog post, “Cleaning out the Closet.”
Though difficult to do at times, I can’t stress enough how necessary it is to say goodbye to anything, or anyone that doesn’t inspire you, support you, or play an active role in your life.
It’s also necessary to address and understand the things controlling your unhappiness and ultimately creating a barrier between you and your goals. By doing so, you can get to work on making the necessary changes needed to make your life as successful as possible.
