I’ve been fluttering for over a year now with the FlyLady (if you haven’t heard of her, check out http://www.flylady.net).
Anyway, the thing is, I’ve been thinking about my attitude toward my possessions. When I’m less than enthusiastic about taking care of them, what I’m really showing is a lack of gratitude. I mean, if was truly thankful, wouldn’t I make every effort to take care of my things as best as I can? Wouldn’t I be thankful for the opportunity to take care of what I own?
On days when my attitude is where it should be, my chores are NOT a chore. I put on my headphones and fly through my day. Sometimes, it still takes all day :), but I tend to enjoy the activity *GASP!*
On the other hand — when I slip back into my stinky way of thinkin’, my chores feel like a mountain of trouble that I can’t climb even if I want to!
I keep reminding my kids of the verse that says, “Do everything as if doing it for the Lord.”
Apparently, I’M the one who needs reminding!! 🙂
Do you have any ‘tudes that need adjusting?
