When we purchased this home, it was with the intent in my mind to live in it for a while, fix it up, and then sell it to move on to “bigger and better” things. So, with that in my plan, I wasn’t ever really happy – I was always trying to think ahead to the future instead of being happy where God had currently planted me.
I wasn’t happy with my decorations in the house – I felt like nothing actually came together and most of it was crowded. I felt like a wannabe decorator…trying really hard but not succeeding.
What was at the root of my discontent? I’ll tell you – clutter. I felt like I needed something bigger because this space just felt too cramped…this space wasn’t just right for the things I wanted to do. This space wasn’t JUST RIGHT for me.
Dude – that’s stupid. I was being stupid. Like a 5 year old who won’t eat his/her sandwich because it isn’t cut in the right shape. (more…)
