Dear Fellow DIY’er,
Do you have a minute?
We know, we know! There is this project that you are finishing up.
If you could spare a minute, we think this might be worth it.
See we have this secret.
To be honest, this secret is not just for DIY’ers but for many kind of doers.
Are you ready?
Your To Do List will NEVER get done!
Yep, that’s it.
No matter how hard we try, just like Taylor Swift, we will never ever, ever, ever have all the projects done.
We will never have the perfect home, laundry folded, 3 home cooked meals a day from food you grew, no food wasted, scrapbooks completed, books read, straight A’s students, files organized, rooms painted, yard landscaped, home always decorated perfectly, best workout, healthiest diet, should we go on?
Now don’t get us wrong….obviously we love a good project, but sometimes it seems like just when one project is done the instinct is to think about the next. Who are we kidding? Sometimes we are thinking about the project even before we finished the last.
But here’s the BIG QUESTION:
Do we ever use these projects to build contentment?
We love making the most with what we have. At times, that is updating a kitchen AND at other times it’s realizing our family time is fleeting and priorities need to be made.
Sooooooo what do we do now?
Of course, knowing our priorities makes these decisions easier.
The other key, we believe, is not taking our life contentment from things that are fleeting.
There is a world in need. Are we serving it?
Honestly, our hearts are more content by what we give than what we have. We know this, and teach it to our children, BUT DO WE REALLY (in the gut) KNOW IT?
You know what else this realization does? It frees us. It frees us from the idea of being perfect. It lets us off the hook.
Do your best with the things that are important and let the others go. It’s okay, you can do it!
Now doesn’t that feel better?
Just like a big old breathe!
Okay, you can pick up your paint brush, scissors, spatula, hamper, or whatever it is that you are working on but REMEMBER IT WON’T ALL GET DONE HERE FOLKS!!
