Well....there is no better way to get me going and motivated than to do Nester's 31 days. I figured if I had to do a post every single day of this month I could have no excuses, I would have to fight the laziness and just do it!!!
My 31 days will be on "PERSPECTIVE"...in the home.
It started with this post I did a couple weeks ago. I have been thinking a lot about perspective. I had a huge incident happen this year that made me think of the true me, of the things that are the most important in life. I feel like some days I am doing life at its best and others I feel like I am gasping for air. Its the "I should have done this" or "why didn't I do that" or "why didn't I do this better." The things I have no control over. The things I can't change.
But during my freak out tirades I stopped short and came to my senses. In the whole scheme of things who cares about all this stuff. But what really matters is whether or not I showed love and compassion. Did I lift others up? Did I bring joy to others? Did I spend quality time with my sweet kids and hubby? Am I content with what I have and how my home looks?
And most importantly...lets take it easy on ourselves. Be patient with ourselves.
Hopefully these freak outs give me a different perspective, allow me to ponder and gain an understanding that I don't think I would have had otherwise.
Cheers to 31 days of perspective....
