The title says it all.. I spent a lot of time cleaning the house today. IT WAS VERY PLEASANT and I'm not kidding. Life seems more organized and way better. It put me in a GREAT MOOD.. and it put my mom in a great mood, too. Hahah.
IT'S ALL ABOUT MOTIVATION.. which I usually have zero of. But, I was on a roll today. I hope it continues. It's all about maintenance. Once you clean the house, you just need to make a constant effort every day to KEEP IT CLEAN. I can do this.. we can do this!
What else happened today? I went to work and went to Target. Just a typical day. I still can't stop listening to the Justin Bieber album from last month. I LOVE IT.
Anyways, back to cleaning.. I am going to make a spiritual comparison! Just like with our homes and rooms, we have to WORK to keep them clean. And they can get dirty really quick.. because we are living and doing stuff. IT'S THE SAME WITH OUR MINDS. We need to keep our thoughts clean. It can be difficult because there is so much trash in the world that can clutter our mind! Even if we don't like it! HERE IS THE SOLUTION.. stay close to Heavenly Father. Surround yourself with good. Find the good. Seek the good. I promise.. it works. If you have an inappropriate song stuck in your head, start listening to better music immediately. If you always think poorly of others and think rude comments, start noticing the positive in people. Pray for strength to be your best self and to always be clean in thought AND IN ACTION. For what you think really does build who you are as a person. What do you want your soul filled with? I think it's better to UPLIFT AND ENDURE.. than to TEAR DOWN & DRAG. Just ponder that. Stay morally clean. You can do it! It's worth it.
