Today I cleaned my kitchen.
I have recently taken to doing yoga in the kitchen, as it’s the only wooden floor area big enough, and yoga is oh soooo much better on a wooden floor 🤸🏻♀️🧘🏼♀️
One thing about yoga is that you see different perspectives and angles in a room than usual. You see the floor close up, the ceiling, and the underside and close up of furniture 😜
And so in the last weeks I have increasingly noticed the fly poo here there and everywhere!.. the marks and stains that build up over time on white cupboards, the filth under the stove and on the stove front etc etc etc.
The analogy came through loud and clear, as after I had started cleaning I kept seeing more and more muck:
The process of cleaning up involves realising how much of a mess things are.
This is also true for the process of gaining self awareness and cleaning up our ‘stuff’. For a while it seems there is just more and more of it as you start to look, and it can feel sometimes overwhelming and hard to grapple with.
However one step at a time things improve.
And at the end of the day, you’re happy with your kitchen 😂🤩🥳🤸🏻♀️
