Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Say Hello & Goodbye


The Recovering Pessimist: Say Hello & Goodbye

There are a lot of things to look forward to this month. One, Daylight Savings Time (DST) began on the 8th. My spirit rejoices at the thought of longer days. Makes me feel like I have more time to be productive. Two, Spring began on the 20th. That’s right, warmer days are thisclose to happening.

*screams with excitement*

The impending weather change and longer days often inspire me to do a deep clean of my apartment. Material things I no longer need are donated and/or recycled. I promised myself back during the fall that for every new item that I brought into my apartment, I would have to get rid of an item.

Not only does that apply to the material things I my apartment but also to my mental state. Months of defeat left me ridden with anxiety and stress before I was reminded to get out of my head. Even though the situations were resolved, I was still holding on to the negativity.

Holding onto chaos, whether it’s material or mental creates clutter. The last thing any of us needs is clutter. You cannot say “Hello” to positivity and until you say “Goodbye” to the clutter. Feel free to let that marinate for a while.

Joy in Cleaning?

Do you enjoy cleaning? Why or why not?

Not really. I do it because I have to do it. Once I start it, I’m fine. Motivating myself to start cleaning is the problem.
