Take out the trash! It’s the end of 2020 and my best response is, “It’s been a lot!” Our cups runneth’ over. And the unfortunate part is that we have an overflow of darkness this year.
Time to sort it out just like we separate the lights from the darks before washing our clothes. We put the darks in one pile and the lights in another. We could, in this case, call the dark items things to release or even call them garbage for they need to go out with the outgoing year.
Darkness include dark thoughts, painful experiences or even a series of unfortunate events. Sometimes, they are opaque and hard to detect like in bowling. Just when we think that we have hit a strike there stands that hidden pin to burst our bubbles. We know that we still have more work to do.
We must turn on all of the lights as we clean and locate that hidden dirt deep down in the corners and crevices of our minds. We have to turn on that spotlight to make sure that we have swooped up all of the darkness to add to our trash piles.
Then, we should do a second check. Are there any unseen barnacles trying to attach themselves to the bottom of our boats as we embark upon the new year? Well, we will have none of that!
No more free rides and extra weight to bow us down! Now take out the trash! Make it a ceremonious event if need be, but get it done! Then, breathe. Let out a big sigh of relief and get ready to walk into 2021, as we put ourselves Number One on our lists!
