When I was first married with children, if I felt like I was out of sink, then I would spring-clean the whole house. It was a cleansing for me as well as the house, and for that matter for everyone that was in the house. When I finished I would feel centred, re balanced, like my life was back in order. This didn't mean that the house had to be spotless and everything in it's place all the time. It was about how I would feel on the inside. I would feel very settled, able to see things more clearly.
The clarity would sift through to all parts of my life. Nothing was a struggle.
I have always had a feeling that my cupboards were about so much more then just the things that I put inside them, and how I did it. They were the inside story off my life and how I was living. It didn't matter that they were closed and no one else saw inside them. It was how I cared for the things in my cupboard that was important. How I cleaned, looked after and put away all the things that went into the cupboards, the feeling I got when I opened the doors to put things away. Absolute Joy.
