Over the last few days, I have been busy decluttering my space both at the office and at home. It brings fresh energy, makes you feel better about your work and sets a tone of preparation for exciting things to come.
I found old photographs, cards, poems, gifts and souvenirs from friends…I even found a notebook with phone numbers of friends whom I have not been in touch with for a long time! I redecorated a bulletin board in my office and stuck some thank you cards and photos of my colleagues at work, my loved ones and even colleagues who have moved to other countries or other jobs. However, in all of this cleaning, I also came across these words from St. Theresa of Avila, which I wrote several years ago. It is a timeless, priceless and holds true today.
Let go of your worries. Have peace in your heart.
Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing frighten you
All things pass away
God never changes
Patience obtains all things
He who has God lacking for nothing
God alone suffices
Theresa of Avila
