Wordy Wednesday: Clean Your Room

I look forward to spring cleaning and putting things in their place. It’s therapeutic for me. –Kimora Lee Simmons

Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing. — Phyllis Diller


An old Hebrew Proverb translates simply, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”

I have a love/hate relationship with cleaning. I hate cleaning, but I like the feeling I get when I know everything has a place. I’m horrible at being organized, but I like to organize. If everything else feels out of control, cleaning makes the difference. It gives something else for the mind to concentrate on, and it’s the one thing I know I have complete control over. My most depressed moments are when I’m living in a state o f clutter and madness.  It’s simplistic, but the best solutions often are.

After that, there are options for decorating and the bliss of having a cup of coffee in a clean room with a fluffy cat, knowing there is nothing amiss.
That will last for about five minutes, but it’s five minutes that could change your world.
