5 Life Lessons Everyone Learns While Spring Cleaning


May is, without question, the best time to declutter your life.

May is finally the time when the weather is warm enough to crack the windows open, to put away your bulky winter jacket and clear your life for the summer ahead.

And sure, spring cleaning is, well, a chore, but it’s also a great time to learn a few of life’s greatest lessons. Don’t believe me? Read up on what you’ll ultimately learn about yourself by clearing out the old and allowing room for the new while you scrub.

Everyone is a mess, even if it’s hidden.

Look, you’re not the only person who thinks your life is in shambles. The real trick is, everyone else is just good at hiding it. Like spring cleaning, when you realize you haven’t vacuumed under the couch in months, or ever cleaned behind the toilet for that matter, you’re bound to find some unwanted dirt somewhere. And that’s totally OK, it’s just all about how you deal with it. If you find dirt in a new relationship, maybe walk through it with your parter to get the inside scoop on how it got there in the first place. Just never judge; like this person, you too probably have some grime stored up somewhere. If, however, you just find gook behind the couch, grab some Borax and scrub the sh*t out of it.

Tiny things are immensely important to some people.
