This is Day 3 in a 31 day series on Living Boldly. Check out the other posts here. Welcome!
I’ve decided that bold homemaking means taking steps toward hopes for your home, despite fears.
One of my primary hopes for my home is that it be a place I truly enjoy–a place where I find rest and beauty, even in the midst of imperfections.
In fact, I want to love my home. Boldly, in the face of fears.
Fear that we might move (hey, it’s already happened 11 times). That we won’t be here for too long (we’re at 2.5 years now and that’s a record). That loving it and investing in it will just make me more sad when moving day eventually comes.
The reality is all of these are possible, even likely. But I don’t want future possibilities to hinder enjoying the time I have here now.
I’ve been attempting the whole blooming where you’re planted thing for a while now. And though the goodbyes never get any easier, I am more convinced with each move that boldly loving the home I have yields contentment and joy.
Do you struggle with loving the home you have? If so, I’ve got a free resource for you–a short eBook called The Homemaker’s Manifesto. It’s a call to embrace the home you have (with all its imperfections), focus on the good, and invite people in.
