Spring Clean Your Love Life
There is something about Spring that makes us want to clear things out and start fresh. Perhaps it is the colorful landscape of new flowers blooming in the shining sun. Before you begin spring cleaning your home, start with spring cleaning your heart. Here are 4 things you can do to sweep away the old and start new.
When you have been hurt, it can be hard to move on. Holding on to anger is not doing you or anyone any good. Forgiving can be liberating. When you forgive, you release anger and pain. You will feel lighter and as if weight has been lifted off of your shoulders. You are then able to move on allowing you to let love in again.
Stop Holding on to the Past
As a relationship progresses, we begin to hold on to things that remind us of specific moments. When you keep that old picture frame she gave you or that sweater he let you wear all of the time it is a constant reminder of the past. You want to start looking forward to the future. It is time to donate those items, so they have a new life as well. You will be able to move forward without this extra weight holding you down.
Make Room for Those Who Matter
When your life is full of negativity or people not treating you the way you deserve, you do not have the room for people that matter. It is time to put an end to relationships or friendships that no longer serve you well. Make room only for those who are uplifting, supportive, loving, and helpful. Those are the people who should take up the space in your life.
This is a good time to look within yourself and make improvements. Focus on getting healthier. The better weather is a perfect time to get outdoors. Practice self-love and empowerment. Think of the great things about yourself and believe them. In addition, you can also make some outward improvements. Buy some new clothes, get a fresh haircut or go get that shave. It is fun trying something new to welcome the season and open yourself up to new possibilities.
April showers bring May flowers so get ready to have your heart fully blossom this season!
