The Simple Art of Closing the Circle
I almost left the picture as the entire blog and skipped the writing...because truly, this picture says it all! so, if you’re in a hurry, stop here, and if you want another layer, keep reading!
If you also read the newsletter, you know that I had a teensy internal struggle this week with my neighbor’s garbage being left in the apartment hallway for a couple of days, (near our door, too). Ahem, it was interfering with the energy!!! :)
And then in a PLOT TWIST, I was Grateful! And Inspired! because I needed the reminder, for myself, my clients, and to get the word out to anyone who will listen!
Every day, many, many times, we are given an opportunity to complete a task. And when I say complete a task, I mean ALL THE WAY, Close the Circle.
It’s a habit and a practice. And it is powerful.
This type of “circle” applies to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in our lives!
Here are a few examples:
Usually it is the last step (Put Away) that is left undone.
And then ALL of the undone circles in your space start to multiply; they take on a life of their own!
And that’s when we begin to feel any or all of these consequences:
NOT closing the circles in your life causes the stagnant energy in your home to grow.
If the things you own do not have a home, then there will be overflow.
Overflow ALWAYS interferes with the final “put away” step. How can you put things away if there is no room for them?
Things are left out, projects are not completed, AND there is a cost to your health, wealth, and happiness.
Here’s where ruthless editing and organizing comes in...

For me, this is the one thing about parenthood I was not ready for. I tell anyone having their first child to be prepared to never sit down, start a task and then follow it through to completion. It is near impossible with very small children.
Wonderful to hear from you, Cynthia! I agree, little ones, as joyful and exciting as they are, remind us to PRIORITIZE! Along with the side benefits of LIVE IN THE MOMENT and FOCUS on one thing at a time, or nothing will ever get finished! Ahhhhh, a week would just about do it, non?
