What do you think about when you think about “home improvement?” Do you think about your physical space? Or, instead, do you think about your mental state? Is your home where you live, or is it your spiritual center, your psyche?
One of my goals this year is to get my “house” in order, and by that I mean, my personal self. Every year, many of us make lots of resolutions with high hopes we will at least get through January accomplishing whatever it is we set out to do. We do a lot of looking forward; we don’t tend to look behind for what we’ve done in the past. But it’s the past that informs the future and the past (or the past actions) that leads to the need to change.
Maybe we overindulged and packed on a few pounds. Maybe we got so busy with our family’s activities that we forgot to take care of ourselves. Maybe we made horrible life choices at some point and now are facing the consequences. Regardless, we all have the capacity to change, we just have to be willing to do so. Sometimes, the way is rocky and the water cold, but the end goal is worth it. Are you ready to take the plunge?
