Have you ever been in a house funk?
Like no matter what you do to your home it does not seem “good enough,” especially when you compare it to others’ homes?
Ack, comparison is the thief of joy.
Well no matter how many books, blog posts, pinterest inspiration quotes I read in regards to finding contentment and joy in the midst of imperfection, I still get in these funks.
Sometimes the funk lasts two hours and sometimes it lasts weeks.
Well I have been in said funk for several months now, and I am starting to see the light.
And I know the reason why.
When I share my home with others rather than spending time in comparison it gives my home life, dare I say rejuvenation.
Rejuvenation that does not require a hammer and nails, or even a paint brush.
Rejuvenation that is simply spurred on as I view my home as something I can serve others with, rather than how I feel about the way it serves me.
Here is the before and after of my “far from ideal” laundry area.
For the full “before” post go here.
Ahh so much better.
And to help get my funk on the move this weekend, I took this photo on Sunday afternoon to compare with the photos from 28 months ago.
