Embracing the mundane 🙌🏼.
- - - - -
Call me crazy but one of my favorite things to do is clean and tidy up 🧹. These days, that includes going to the construction site (aka site of our new home 🏡) daily to clean up the loose remnants of the day’s work — nails and screws that have escaped drills and tool belts 🔩, piles of sawdust, dried muddy footprints on newly poured slabs👣, wind-blown dried leaves 🍁, and the occasional empty soda🥤cup. And. I. Love. It.
I find “chores” to be so therapeutic. Armed with an arsenal of brooms and a dust pan, I gradually transform chaos 🤯 to serenity 🤗, both physically and mentally. Cleaning and tidying 🧽 have the magical effect of providing an escape from the daily stressors of adulting and parenting. When I’m stressed and anxious 💆🏻♀️ about the unknown, I know that the mundane will provide familiarity and consistency.
And for that, I am grateful 💕.
