Periodically, we get sick of our house. We get overly dramatic and want to just tear it down and start anew. It’s an old house with leaks, creaks and full of eclectic features most would find totally unacceptable. But when it comes right down to it, it’s the home we made. Honestly, we just wish we could make a very few changes, and we would be happy home owners.
This means our home concerns of cleanliness and order is often a passing thing. It’s not a totally irrational feeling that we want to throw it all away and start over.
Drama here is that feeling of finding the “perfect home” where we can turn at any time and find everything we dream about, but we know it’s only a dream.
This is the bad news of our “season of discontent” with the status quo.
The good news for us is that we can work to make our home better. The better news is that our home is a place where we have worked to improve the status quo and commit to make better for those who follow us. What we do today can determine if that place we call home is better for us having been here.
Wherever you are and in whatever condition you find yourself make a commitment to improve each day. At the end of that day you need to be able to look in the mirror and ask if where you live is better because you were there.
