A clearing is a wide open empty space in your life that is ready for something new or amazing to emerge. A clearing can be a cleaned-out closet or a regularly unscheduled Saturday. A clearing can be dissolving an unproductive business partnership or going to bed early two days in a row. A clearing can be saying no to a pesky friend or saying yes to a forbidden treat. A clearing can be as simple as taking out the trash or as serious as leaving a job or ending a not-so healthy relationship. A clearing can be recycling that piece of furniture you never really liked, not for one second.
I decided to get rid of the clutter in the cupboard under the stairs to create a clearing - it was bursting at the seams, each time you opened the door something fell out of it! So, a couple of hours later with much huffing and puffing, I cleared out my cupboard, the contents of which were divided into recycling and charity bags.

Feeling inspired, I sent my work stressed partner an email asking him what time he was coming home, he replied that he would try and get home early, and he did! I packed up Dora (my campervan) and we spent a a very pleasant English summer evening walking the dogs down the Lancaster Canal and having tea in Dora.
As soon as I stepped onto the tow-path I sunk deep into my soul and felt at home - I'm a simple girl, my heart sings when walking down a beautiful canal path on an English Summer's evening.
|What a sweet little Canal Boat named Blue Jay!
|You can just make out the name of this boat - Night Owl - lots of bird inspired names
|Jasper - my 9 month old Cocker Spaniel - went for a swim and got stuck trying to get out!
|Conny - my 9 year old Cocker Spaniel - she is such a gracious swimmer
|A bit wonky but I would have fallen into the canal trying to get a straight view!
I am now inspired to add a few more things onto my Mondo Beyondo List!
What inspires you and what simple things makes your heart sing?
