I took a day off from work today. Before I went to sleep last night, I set my intention to do only things that inspired my growth today. Cleaning the basement window was not on my agenda, but I promised myself I would do the things that I was inspired to do.
The basement sliding glass door is in the back corner of the room, and it is the only light source there is down there. The “nudging” came to fully open the vertical blinds and clean the back part of the door. Because of a table that is in front of that part of the blinds, it is hard to see what is back there. I could not believe how much dirt was in the corner. I didn’t see the dirt until the blind was opened, and the light was allowed to shine on it.
The purpose of this inspired action (other than the need to clean that corner), was for me to look at the areas of my life that I am not allowing the light to shine on. These are the areas that I am working around, instead of choosing to work on—the things I have been putting off, tolerating, procrastinating about or afraid to act on. The inspired action that I took in the basement encouraged me to make a list of all the things that I truly want for my life, to focus my vision and re-commit to moving forward toward my goals.
Perhaps it’s time to ask yourself what areas of your life need a little light? You may be amazed at what you see.
