Spring Renewal Part 1: Cleanse Our Hearts by Fatima Salaam

This month’s theme is Spring Renewal. It is never too late to make a fresh start. On the other hand, if you set goals in January and you have been grinding, it may be time to recharge. This week, we will look at ways to cleanse our hearts. The first step is to do a heart check up by asking ourselves:
Have we become self-satisfied?
There are three ways to know that we have become overly satisfied. The first way is that we are very concerned by our rights and our very indifferent to rights of others. The second way is to ignore our own faults and become preoccupied with the faults of others. And the final way is to give ourselves too many excuses.
The remedy to becoming too comfortable with our faults is to first check ourselves and our intentions. Second, be careful of what we let into our hearts by filtering what we listen to, watch, read, and who we associate with. Lastly, we must force ourselves to do things that are outside of comfort zones and make our hands sweat.
Once you have done your personal heart check up, then you will be ready to do a spring cleaning on your heart. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.
