Day 1…I have to admit, I have been dreading the last phase of our remodeling project. I have told Wifey that I will try to only verbalize positive or neutral feelings about the unraveling of our life. Wifey is always positive, lives for each moment and never looks ahead. I have made many improvements in this area, but I must admit, living in the moment for me tends to be planning only one week at a time, instead of many. Considering this, I think I am doing quite well.
Over the past four years, we have been remodeling our home, one room at a time. For a type A personality like myself, this process is a challenge. I like a schedule. I like to know what to expect. I am a planner. Ok, so I am a bit of an anal, control freak…at least I can admit it! So, having everything I know begin to unravel before my eyes, can be a bit difficult. But, believe it or not, I have relaxed over the years. During these remodel projects, I find myself thinking/feeling one extreme or the other. The following two phrases pretty much sum up my thoughts on any given moment…
A Butterfly is the perfect example of how change can be beautiful!
NOTICE: Due to the current construction project, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice…
I find with these types of projects, the pre-planning tends to be worse than when the demolition actually begins. It’s the unknown… Yesterday morning, I woke up to a kitchen. Three hours later, our kitchen was missing in action!
So my goal for this project…to embrace change gracefully!
I will strive to not personally become unraveled! Keep a watch out for more remodel updates to come!
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You!
