Spring Cleaning


Be it spring or whatever reason a big mental box of nostalgic life experiences comes out each and every seasonal change. To say that this seasonal Pandora's' box is a complex cocktail of good, bad, and forgettable is an under statement. Timing. Spring really arrives this weekend. Maybe this is why we have this cleaning mentality? Ever try to tidy up your mental closet? As March 21st approaches, many people get in gear for “spring cleaning.” While physically cleaning your house or office is always a good idea, the concept occurred to me to make time this season for cleaning up actions and behaviors. Charm school was a lost cause for me, but it's never to late to start developing new good habits on etiquette today and by summer perhaps a few things will have changed. My own wish list includes how I get things done (or not..) and how to be more amenable to do things that are better left to tomorrow.
The following sniglet really resonates:

"Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they be come habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your DESTINY."

Sometimes it's risky to question the cosmic intervention of certain experiences that just happen to blow into your world like a piece of pollen? I suppose this would be an unwelcome metaphor to use for those of you suffering from allergies at the moment. I happen to be a student of things happen for a reason. Maybe because I don't have a crystal ball or intuitive second nature to serve as my mental tight rope to walk upon. It's all about being at the right place at the right time.

Just when you think you've gotten to the end of your karmic rope a cat like agility kicks in.
Mostly it's timing, but sometimes it's other forces at play. For those of you still with me, thanks for hanging in there today. Swimming in my stream of
consciousness is more fun with company.

never question the cosmos..things do happen for a reason..

every ying has a yang, action, reaction, protagonist, antagonist..

someone somewhere out there is sending you a ray of light..
