And desperate to figure out who the real me was. Or could be...

THE HABIT - SPRING CLEANING

It’s around this time of year when I find myself in the same headspace of many: 

Over it.

Over winter; Ready for Spring. I'm ready to step out of my cave, deeply breathe the fresh spring air, and step into a brighter, shinier, NEW version of me. I need to shake off. Clean up. DECLUTTER....
