Hi there awesome YOU! How's it going? Has the summer heat reached your neck of the woods yet? It is HOT here! But the skies are blue, so I am not complaining. This morning after I took my morning shower, I felt the need to clean out my closet. Do you ever get that need to just clean everything out? I do. I never feel the feel to "Spring clean". For me it is always in the summer. No idea why. I don't even question it, I just go with how I feel. I think that is a good way to move through most things actually. I strive to not "should" on myself, but to really check in and feel my way through stuff. But that is just me!
So after I cleaned my closet of seriously, way too many clothes that I never wear, I loaded up my car and dropped off all the bags (yes bags) of clothes at a thrift shop. It feels good to donate things that are perfectly fine, knowing they will make someone happy. I will always donate if at all possible.
After all that, I began thinking about summer rituals; stuff I do every summer (besides sleep a bit later). There is a vacation of course, and the kids are off school. The days themselves are less structured with more time to just be. I spend more time in the kitchen puttering about. There is a lot of time spent at the beach/waterpark as well. I find in the summer I read more (which is saying something because I typically read a lot). I also tend to ponder my life, my goals, my dreams and all that good stuff.
What are your summer rituals? I would love to hear what YOU do? Comment here or hop on over to my Facebook page and tell me all about it. Until next time...
