I spent the entire weekend helping my mom remodel and clean her house. Not sure why all of a sudden she wanted to do the remodeling, but something in her told her that it was time for a change.
After much pondering about which task to take on, she finally focused her energy on painting the "formal livingroom" because it was within her time constraints and it was easier than say laying tile or placing laminate.
I had to give it to my mom, she had put off painting that room for years before she woke up one day and and was like "let's remodel the house." It was like her new beginning, she is newly single and living her life how she wants to. Finally able to pursue her dreams. I can't say I blame her. She finally has the opportunity to live her life the way she wants to without having to deal with the many situations that will hold her back and hinder her.
It's like that in life. You sleep on yourself and your abilities everyday believing you don't have the time or energy to do what you want or dream or aspire to do. You settle on what's fashionable, available, or just easier. But it doesn't make you any happier or satisfied. Then one day, situations might change, money might come in, opportunities might present themself and it's AHA!. You now all of a sudden have the energy and time to go forth and conquer. Well I want to say this. Don't wait for the opportunity, money, or perfect situation because it may never actually come along.
For some of us it might take some poking and prodding to remodel our house[lives], but you have the ability to make changes right now. All you have to do is wake up and pickup that first brush.
