Last month we talked about seeing clearly and having the “difficult conversations.” This month, I keep thinking about the home improvement shows. Last month was demo day – tearing everything out to make a clean slate for the renovation. This month construction begins.
It’s time to build out the new floor plan – add a support beam to support the new configuration, convert a closet to a bathroom, commandeer a small bedroom to become a walk-in closet. All to achieve better function and flow.
We are taking the same framework and re-arranging all the boundaries within, making more room for some things in our lives and less room for others. All with the purpose of bringing in more light and creating better flow!
And sometimes in a reno when you start opening up walls, you don’t know what you’re going to find. There may be occasional surprise reactions this month while you’re trying out the new you. People may not react the way you hope. That’s okay. Do it anyway. Who knows? Your movement may create movement for them, too.
This shift to a bigger, brighter you may be subtle at this point. Here’s where to look for signs of change.
- You’re not willing to tolerate situations or people you’ve been tolerating.
- You surprise yourself with a new show of strength – a vehement “no” or an enthusiastic “yes” that’s uncharacteristic for you.
- You may suddenly get a flash of clarity – a new perspective – that altars your whole point of view on a situation or even how you’ve been living your whole life.
The best part of the reno shows is when the owners have been shown around their new digs and are told, “Welcome home.” That’s when a new life begins. The construction on our inner home may not be move-in ready for a few months, but it’s certainly something to look forward to!
