How to Spring Clean Your Whole Life

Spring is finally here (I think?) & that means it’s time for a little bit of spring cleaning. Personally, as soon as the weather gets warmer, I get the urge to clean everything. Mostly it takes form in cleaning out my closet & getting rid of old clothes I don’t wear anymore (to make room for all my new fun spring/summer clothes ;)), but this year I’ve extended spring cleaning into other areas of my life too. After this dreadful obnoxiously long winter, it feels super good to clean everything out & feel light again. So here are a couple (easy) tips to spring clean your whole life.

I find that some of the best conversations occur after midnight.

We got on the topic of meeting people & the concept of “no new friends.” Fortunately, we all left college with a solid group of amazing friends & found ourselves feeling anxious when we had to interact with new people. My one friend said she legitimately tenses up when having to make small talk & I admitted I’ve found myself feeling skittish when meeting new people.

That surprised me.

For one thing, I would not describe myself as “skittish.” I don’t think I’ve ever been skittish or avoidant of any social situation in my entire life. I’ve been an extrovert since I’ve been five & habitually over-confident (sometimes edging on cocky). And yet there I was admitting that I felt skittish when meeting new people.

You know what I realized? I’m scared. And it’s not only me–we’re all pretty scared.  Somehow, slowly, we’ve become a generation of cowards.
