When Spring has not Sprung

When spring has not sprung in your spring cleaning.

When spring has not sprung in your spring cleaning.

The flowers are budding, trees are showing new growth, wind is softly blowing in the freshness that comes with spring. My house looks like it’s buried in a blizzard of paperwork, or a tornado has blown through the rooms. Spring has not sprung indoors.

I try to keep up with everything, but I spend more time feeling overwhelmed than I do actually cleaning. I started realizing this a few weeks months ago. I wrote about it here, and here, remember? It’s time to admit one small – OK, it really feels quite LARGE – fact. I need help. Truth is, I probably needed help years ago, but pride and blind eyes kept me from realizing it.

You might need help if…

  • Your pile of “I’ll get to it” never gets gotten too.
  • As long as there is a path between rooms, you’re fine.
  • Things constantly end up lost.
  • Important papers disappear in a blizzard of non-important ones.
  • The sun is shining but your house remains dark due to grimy windows or too many piles.
  • You no longer remember what color your baseboards are.
  • Dust bunnies are your little friends.
  • You’ve just given up trying.
  • Wandering aimlessly it’s hard to know where to even start.
  • Panic attacks accompany house cleaning.

I’ve admitted I need help, What now?
Good question! I’ll answer that next week!

I Asked and Help Knocked On My Door

help knockedI asked for help. I realized I’m struggling to do it on my own. So I asked. And help came knocking on my door.

When I opened the door I felt vulnerable. Raw. Exposed.

But I opened the door-

And help walked in.

The process revealed much. Many things I didn’t want revealed. There is sometimes pain in revealing. (and a good bit of anxiety too!)

But we walked through it.


In the end, accomplishment, hope, and a new beginning stood before me.

All because I asked.

What did I ask? What did I need help with?

That will be revealed in time to you, my dear readers… all in due time! So stay tuned!  (OK… you can find a hint here.)
