I like the concept of washing your hands free and clean of something. Whether it’s a stressful job, a toxic relationship, or some other responsibility that is bringing you down. Washing your hands clean promotes a mindset of letting it go and moving on. Ah, moving on…sounds nice doesn’t it. I contend that sometimes we might wash our hands of something, but the residue, mess, and funk of it is still sitting in our human sinks. Why? Because we haven’t REALLY moved on. We haven’t really let things fully drain. As such, our future thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are impacted by this clogged up sink. It doesn’t allow a free flow and we’re left living in a puddle of our own filth. The solution…unclog the pipe. To truly get over those things that we, in theory, washed away, we need to fully process them through. Understand them, their impact, and ways to effectively manage their potential re-emergence in the future. Therapy, journaling, meditation, yoga, and other forms of cognitive, emotional, and physical “movement” helps rattle the drain and allow the “gray” water to release. Are you clogged? Have you thought you washed your hands clean, but yet you’re standing in your own residue? Is it time to let it drain?
