This is a lesson I'm still learning - how to let it go.
🌷As I stand in the middle of my kitchen and wonder why it can't stay clean for 5 minutes.
🌷As I put the last piece of laundry away, only to find a new basket has been filled.
🌷As I watch my family relaxing and enjoying themselves and I question how the work will ever get done.
And then I realize that it won't and that's okay. The work is never "done" because it just regenerates. Real homes aren't "done" because families "live" in them.
And so I sit, in my lived-in home and I breathe. I breathe at the floor that still needs to be swept, and at the teenager who put a cup on the counter I just finished cleaning.
I breathe in.
I breathe out.
I feel gratitude for my house that is a home.
Real homes aren't perfect and neither am I.
I am enough...
And I release it.
