One day I was online reading and I read where a lady said she changed her attitude and she changed her house. She quit saying I have to wash dishes, I have to wash the clothes, I have to cook supper. She started saying I get to do the dishes for my family, I get to wash my clothes for my family, I get to cook for my family. She said just the change in attitude made such a difference.
I read on another site where a lady said she decided to look at things differently too, she decided she was not going to clean her house anymore, she was not going to wash her clothes anymore....hang on, she wasn't giving up or quitting, she said she decided to BLESS her house, BLESS her clothes, BLESS her family by cooking for them.
Now, no matter how you say it or do it, it still has to be done. But, I thought it would not hurt to try so here I went. I started with changing my attitude and then I started blessing my house. At least it did not sound quite as bad, my attitude changed a little, and my house changed a little. Then, one day me and my husband were talking and he said he doesn't always want to go to work, sometimes he has to make himself but he does it cause he loves us and he needs to take care of us. That made me think even more.
Now is my house perfect, oh no, I still have boxes that need to be gone through and stuff that needs to be decluttered so starting today I am adding one area each day to declutter along with maintaining. My house may not be clean to your standards but it sure feels blessed to me. The best part is now if I do what I need to I usually have time to enjoy this at the end of the day too.
