So this came to me today, after being extremely busy for weeks and weeks and weeks I've come to a slow point and I look at my car on the inside and it is disgusting. Candy wrappers, straw wrappers, bills receipts, invoices and all manner of foolishness everywhere. So I make the decision that I should start cleaning out the car and usually the first thing I do is get rid of the big stuff, it's the easiest to do. I took the task head on and started cleaning out the big stuff immediately and at this point I'm feeling pretty good about myself. Not having my coffee for the day I decide this is a good stopping point to have my Dunkin Donuts and as I got ready to drive off with my coffee in hand, I grab the straw and immediately throw the straw wrapper on the passenger seat and quickly think to myself how easy it is to accumulate the things you just got rid of. It's easy to get clean in any area of your life but staying clean is another dimension. If you want to stay clean clean up behind yourself. Don't do it in an hour. Don't do it when you get in the house. Don't do it after you've run your errands. Do it right away while it's fresh in your mind and stay clean. Don't leave your trash for somebody else. If you started it, fix it. If you created it, finish it. If you drop the ball pick it back up. If you made the mistake make it right. If you threw the first punch apologize. If you threw shade consider your role. If you're feeling misunderstood talk about it.
If you never stay clean you'll continue to keep starting over and over and over again and never truly gaining territory.
Let's stay clean and make some strides by cleaning up behind ourselves.
You know you made that mess, now clean it up
