Springtime appears to be just about upon us in New York, a town of broken promises, well-spent dreams, and lit-up boulevards. The snow is gone, the tourists are back - did they ever actually leave - and the musty air once again smells like... uh... New York.
Ah, spring. A time to clean your house, but in my own way of thinking: Let's start to celebrate a new holiday this year in honor of what I'm dubbing Spring Cleaning for Our Souls:
So it's Totally Honest with Yourself Week!
All of us have to have parts of ourselves we aren't happy with, or do things that objectively make no sense. This special holiday is the time to take a step back, a deep breath, and give ourselves a chance to say them out loud - and to fix them.
Here are some examples of times when self-honesty does some good. See if any of the below hit home with you. Be honest.:
This week isn't about solving all problems; it's not that kind of holiday. THWYW is in fact a real life, real time, finite, active, all-out celebration of you: a guy or gal with a free mind, willing to at least take first steps toward getting what you really want.
Is it going to be easy?
Gee, what do you think?
But is anything worth celebrating really easy?
