Wow, October was quite a month! I didn’t realize when I began the 31 Days challenge that it would be such a personal journey.
Motivated by the messes all over my home, I set out to finish what I started. Right off the bat, I realized that if I wanted to accomplish much, I’d have to address some health concerns.
With that underway, my attention turned to cleaning and organizing and yard work and DIY. But I had an epiphany along the way; understanding that finishing isn’t really the goal, and there’s so much more to life than unfinished chores and DIY projects.
I can’t begin to describe the freedom I felt at that point.
I also gained some insight about myself, like why I tend to procrastinate and where I need to focus my attention. Beyond that, I felt like this blog was more me than it’s ever been; truer to who I am, more realistic, and written in a more clear voice…
Largely because I wrote what I lived, and my living became more intentional.
I no longer feel the need to wait until something is finished (by my standards finished could be interpreted as perfect) before sharing it with you. I want you to see the process, the flops, the successes…all of it. And I’m becoming okay with things not being perfect.
Do I want a beautiful home? Absolutely.
Is a clean home important? Yes.
Does it matter if my home is organized? Without a doubt.
And Mrs. Hines’ Class is still about finding our way to a better home, but home has taken on a whole new meaning in the past 31 days.
So…. I’ll see you in class,
