It’s that time of year again, a time for spring cleaning: out with the old, in with the new! This year, in addition to cleaning my home and getting rid of all the old things I don’t need anymore (old clothes, old notebooks filled with random scribbles, old stuff I don’t use …) I thought it would be fun to clean out some old ideas and beliefs that don’t serve me anymore, that hold me back, that make me feel burdened rather than motivated etc. It certainly is a different kind of spring cleaning- cleaning your mind and preparing yourself for a start of a new season. I think that beginning of spring is awesome time for new, fresh beginnings, for making resolutions, for starting all over again… It makes more sense to start a new project, or a new routine on first day of spring than on January 1st. Our bodies and minds are in tune with nature cycles and it’s much easier to make resolutions now and stick to them, or start something new since everything in nature is starting a cycle of rebirth as well :)
So, are you going to be doing some spring cleaning soon? Do you have some old beliefs and ideas you’d love to let go of and start anew? Feel free to share them :)
Also, if you’re interested in drawing you see above, it’s one of my latest pieces, called Rose patch, it’s actually a mixed media piece ( black rollers and acrylics) and it’s done on 12 x18 inch thick and lightly textured watercolor paper. I started working on it in early February and it took me almost a month to finish it.
