Here in Colorado, spring is finally in full-swing. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and everything is turning green once again. Winter has come and gone and it’s time to dust out the cobwebs and prepare for the new possibilities this season can offer.
For most, spring cleaning is a time to wipe down baseboards and get rid of the clutter in the attic. But who says the same concept can’t apply to our lives? In this week’s episode of Breathe In, Breathe Out, I share what aspects of my life I’m spring cleaning and inspire you to do the same.
