03:43 pm - A New Perspective on Housework
Normally I don't enjoy housework. But, sometimes I get into the spirit of it by renaming it "beautifying the environment". When I think of it that way, I thoroughly enjoy cleaning my house. Today I was beautifying my environment with all my heart! Same applies to cooking. When I see the meal I'm preparing as "a special meal" and that the people who are going to eat it are lucky indeed, I have lots of energy for the job. I did that today, too. So, Steve and I and our guests ate an extra-special, nutritious meal in our invitingly beautiful home, and the whole thing felt effortless. It's amazing how a change in perspective can turn the mundane into the sublime.
