I am getting ready for my 21-Day Meditation Challenge with Oprah and Dr. Deepak Chopra. It begins tomorrow.
To prepare, there are(were) a few things I need(ed) to do:
I need a place where I can be alone and quiet.
The only place I would feel comfortable would be my closet. That sounds funny but it’s a feel-good place and it’s quite spacious. There’s just enough sunlight shining through from my bathroom window.
I had to do some work though. My closet was a complete mess. It was so cluttered. I wouldn’t be able to meditate there because my mind would keep wandering off, thinking of the mess surrounding me.
Can’t be done.
The clutter had to go.
I can’t tell you how long it took me to clean it up. It was so weird because I had such a hard time of letting go of some my clothes.
What’s that about?
I had to call my bff, Josie L, for support. On more than one occasion, I may add. After the third time, that was it, there was no turning back.
I added before and after pictures. I can’t tell you how good it feels. Clutter just brings you down.
Today, I will also be doing my 1-day detox. Click here for my Simple One Day Detox.
Since I am in renewal-mode, I also decide to go see my other bff, Marie-Té, for a microdermabrasion (click here for info). Last but not least, I am rewarding myself, for a job well done, with a body scrub.
This is the beginning of a new journey. I turned 49 a couple of weeks ago and I want my journey leading up to my 50th to be different than my other birthdays.
