Spring Cleaning #4-Relationships

By
Education & Training with Advantage Solutions Group

Have you been attacking all those areas of clutter and tolerations in the last few weeks? How is it feeling?

This week, let's look at relationships. The last area of My March Freebie: the Clean Sweep AssessmentTM is all about relationships. I wrote a blog post a few months ago about upgrading the energy of the people around you. It was a featured post here on ActiveRain and really turned out to be a charged subject!

The 25 Clean Sweep Relationship items give you areas to take a look at and see how you are doing. Do you make requests rather than complaining? Do you gossip? Do you tell others what you need? Are you still holding some old grudges? (I love the quote that says "Unforgiveness is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die!")

When your relationships are working, life is smooth sailing!

Actions to Take this Week:

  • Go through the 25 questions
  • Choose 5 to handle next
  • Make a request in an area you have had a complaint
  • Give up a grudge or forgive someone
  • Communicate what you need to anyone who is not respecting your boundaries

If you missed the Free Fossland's Forum last week, we did a Spring Cleaning of the Outlook Email, revisited this Clean Sweep Assessment and took a look at Spring Cleaning Clients! You can listen to The Spring Cleaning Fossland's Forum here.

Joeann ~ It's the first time I have heard "Unforgiveness is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die!"  I love it!

Your points are specific to get rid of clutter.

  • Give up a grudge or forgive someone
  • Communicate what you need to anyone who is not respecting your boundaries

It is my thought that forgiving someone does not mean that you agree with or condone their behavior.. it just means you have forgiven them for past wrongs, built a bridge and moved on. 

Someone once told me that to forgive was to forget... so forgetting those past wrongs is true forgiveness.

The communication process is one of the most important aspects of removing the mental clutter, if communication is done right.. you sure don't need Dr. Phil and that is a good thing!

You have shared a great program to work on balance and reduce stress!
