Sometimes All It Takes Is Good Soul Douching

The great thing about heartache or turmoil for me is that inevitably a few days after the initial “shock”, I get a crazy urge to tackle stuff (hence, my tiling project 3 months ago, painting the hallway 2 months ago, etc.). And as I sit here and type this post, I am reaping the rewards of this weird healing cycle.

Yesterday morning I decided to get medieval on my garage, workroom, and storage room, as well as the storage space under my deck. Woo hoo! It was a spur of the moment thing and lasted about 8 hours. Not only are these areas orderly and delightfully clean, but my mind is feeling clearer as well. It was a very productive distraction.

Maybe my urge to purge around my house is a symbolic act of cleaning up and letting go in my brain. That while de-junking one area in my life, it sort of gives my mind and heart a good scrub down.

Needless to say, I’m feeling pretty good. And despite the erratic texts I continue to receive, along with a little self doubt, it’s clear to me that I will get past this… Hell, I’m already getting past it.

    Oh, you know, the “thanks for sending my key back” followed by angry ranting. Also the “do you want the (gift) you bought me back”. I see it as a way to stay in contact and also exhibit his anger (and immaturity). I try to not respond, and assume that they’ll end.

    My room could benefit from a little “soul douching”. It’s good to see that you are not wallowing in self pity. As Oprah would say, you go girl!
