Feeling like you don’t have enough? Clean out your refrigerator to feel abundance

clean the refrigerator to feel abundance

We all go through tough times. Some last longer than others.

After a bout of challenging events, I “literally” felt that I was close or near the end of my rope.

It took family and friends to give me the motivation  to get out of my rut . Part of the way I did was by cleaning.

Even though I’m a fan of the Marie Kondo book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing , I had to put the brakes on my paper phase to deal with my physical space.

If you don’t know where to begin, begin with the refrigerator.

I didn’t realize how much i had in the refrigerator until i realized how much food was spoiled. At that point, I realized that I am abundant.

After I was done, I realized that I not only had a clean and organized refrigerator and could see everything in it. I also realized that if necessary,  I could replace what went bad.

Has cleaning and organizing gave you a new outlook on things? Let me know in the comments.
