Live Big. Start Now.

Before I dive into the feng shui-eque aspects of the subject of living bigger, its worth saying that  there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a simple life, nor is there anything wrong with being totally content with where you are in your life.  That said, many of us really want to live a bigger life, to  make more of an impact and to express ourselves more.  So, why don’t we?

When it comes to fundamental changes in the way we are living, sometimes we just don’t know where to begin!  What do I say to my clients who tell me that they don’t know what to do first, yet they are eager to change their lives? I say,” CLEAN HOUSE!”  Clean house first, and things become more clear. 

Cleaning house means a massive declutter of the kitchen (all that junk food stashed for a rainy day can find a new home), a huge purge of the closets (those clothes you never wear or shouldn’t wear need to go!) and literally cleaning the trash out of every single part of your home.  Recycle, sell, donate, compost and, if all else fails, dump what has built up over the years that keeps you stuck in the past or just muddies up your energy in general. Also clean up your computer files, your electronics and your car.

Now, actually clean your house.  Clean it better than you ever have in your entire life.  Wash your windows. Dust in forgotten corners.

When you are done, you will have more clear space in your environment to see what should come next.  It may be time to CLEAN HOUSE of negative people who have held you back in life.  This is a tough one to confront, but if you need a little education on energy vampires that can suck the life out of you, HERE is more to get you educated on why you need to rid your life of crazy drama folks.

Ready to step out into the creative waters now?  Still don’t know where to begin? Grab yourself a copy of The Artist’s Way and get going.  Its the ultimate book of creative rejuvenation, and it never  disappoints!

 If you already know where you are headed, take steps-no matter how small or big- toward your goal.  Every tiny bit bigger you allow yourself to grow paves the way for the next!

Oh, yes, you might feel along the way that your desire for a bigger life is useless, undeserved or even impossible.  Do it anyway.
