So... I feel pretty un-bloggy at the moment. But I thought I would share someone else's blog post that inspired me. This blog is written by an LDS girl who lives in Lehi or Alpine or somewhere around there. I found her blog through some other crafty blogs. Her post is called "passion and life's callings." I love that she celebrates the mundane. I have found housework so monotonous, endlessly repetitive, and seemingly unworthwhile that I fight it. You do the dishes and clean the floor, and guess what? It is all a mess again the next day. It can be very tiresome. I think it makes a big difference if you are not spit on for what you use all your energy doing, like Keith did (sorry for the negativity there) and that left a bad taste in my mouth for something I did once have more of an appreciation and excitement for. I need to let that go somehow. Kelly's post gave me a fresh perspective! Check it out here. It IS all worth it. It blesses everyone in the home...the people we care about the most. When the household runs smoothly, there is more peace and enjoyment. We feel taken care of. And that is what home is all about. What about finding enjoyment in simple domesticity again? I know the end product would make me feel better. What about having clean clothes hanging in your closet, and fresh towels after the shower? What about looking around the kitchen and not seeing piles of paper and things to do? What if I didn't have that always hanging over me? Can I get over the apathy I feel? How do you feel about housework? Is it trivial or meaningful? Fulfilling or drudgery?
