I’ve heard this message for so long, but have been unable to grasp it. Finally, I feel like I understand!
If you can change the way you think about something, you can change the way you feel, which will change your life. I grew up in a home where one of the worst things you could do was to create a mess that mom had to clean up. She had so much to do already, and you were made to feel like you were a horrible, inconsiderate person to heap more onto her already full plate. Much to my dismay, I had carried that into my own life with my family. But just the other day, I realized that if I could choose to enjoy cleaning up messes, my life and my relationship with the wonderful people who share my home could immediately improve. Amazing!
