We are in the mist of the holiday season. The endless store commercials, Christmas songs, parades, and all the fuss.
After all the hustle and bustle, right before the New Year begins, we begin to think about clearing clutter and cleaning our homes. The superstition goes, if you go into the New Year with an unclean house and clutter that is how the rest of the year will be.
Did you ever think that our minds might be the same way? If you go into the New Year with an unclean mind and clutter in our minds, that's how the rest of the year will be. Just as we clean and clear our homes this time of the year, we need to also clear and clean our minds.
What is mind clutter? Mind clutter is useless, worn out thought patterns, habits, unproductive ideas, people, and relationships. How many of us start year after year letting the same old people and stuff take up space in our heads?
We seem to hold on to bad relationships, unresolved issues from our childhood, drug addiction that imprisons, and painful events. Sadly, some of us will go to our graves with this garbage; still angry, blaming someone for something that happened last month, last decade, or even last century.
