Because my husband and I bought a house. And by house I mean SERIOUS fixer upper. So the past 3 weeks have been spent beginning renovations. Smashing things, painting things, messing things up, and then having to fix them.
It occurred to me, as I was sitting i my living room crying because the ceiling was basically raining (we are replacing the roof) that it was time I just embrace the crazy.
See, I am the type of person who enjoys organization, cleanliness, & for things to be done on time and on my schedule. And apparently that just doesn’t happen when it comes to renovations. And so with the hiccups, mishaps, and crap storms I became more and more overwhelmed. Leaving me in freak out mode.
Thankfully I have slowly been working on, and trying to learn how to breath and observe. And what I have observed is that all will be done and will be clean. I have also observed the thing that may have made me the craziest is not the situation but myself. So what to do?
Embrace the crazy. I have to temporarily embrace the chaos to live through it.
There are things in life like this all the time. Things much bigger than home renovations. Things life relationship struggles, health scares, big deals. These create chaos in our lives and if we try to go against it, we will become overwhelmed. Because sometimes having order is just not possible.
It’s time to EMBRACE THE CRAZY. Be in the chaos knowing that you will take it one breath at a time. Knowing that it will not last a trillion light years. And knowing that you are just the right kind of crazy to be able to handle it.
And if all else fails S’mores…
Heat marshmallow in microwave for 5-10 seconds or over a fire. Place marshmallow in between chocolate & graham crackers. Enjoy & repeat.
MUCH Love & chocolatey goodness,
